Of all the great games Drew Brees has played in losses, Sunday's defeat against the 49ers was best of all. We look at other quarterbacks whose win-loss records don't match their passing statistics, plus the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 14.

Game of the week? San Francisco's victory over New Orleans that shook up the entire playoff picture was likely the game of the year. Elsewhere, Chiefs-Patriots and Ravens-Bills also carried serious playoff implications, while Colts-Buccaneers and Dolphins-Jets didn't.

Championship Week went largely as expected except for Oregon's upset over Utah in the Pac-12. But with the favorites winning otherwise -- and comfortably, in the case of the SEC and ACC -- we are assured the best possible playoff foursome.
This week: Jerry Jones vs. Jason Garrett; sports vs. sports entertainment; WRs who say they were double-teamed vs. DBs who say they weren't; Russell Wilson vs. negativity; Pittsburgh vs. duck calls; Sean McVay vs. his own brain; Patrick Peterson vs. losing; and Odell Beckham vs. the future. With a special appearance by Admiral Ackbar!
In his last look at the Arizona Cardinals this season, Ben Muth comes to two conclusions. First: the Arizona Cardinals, though vastly improved from 2018, still leave a lot to be desired. Second: blocking Aaron Donald is really, really hard.
