Found November 21, 2012 on Football Nation:
The 2012 NFL football season is ten weeks old. Several players like Adrian Peterson, Andy Dalton and Reggie Wayne are well on their way to having the best year of their career.  On the flip side there are several other players who are well on their way to having the worst year of their career. I examine seven players who are having the worst year of their career. These players poor performance have impacted their team greatly. Is it too late for these NFL players to turn it around and finish 2012 strong? Only time will tell. We'll know in the next six weeks.

Averaging 16.8 touches per game over the last five weeks...

Indianapolis Colts: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#9)

Last week: 9 (-1) Record: 6-4 The Colts’ loss to the Patriots last week was a definite sign they haven’t quite arrived yet. They’ve beaten up on a bunch of bad teams and only have 1 win by more than a touchdown and that was against a 1-win Jacksonville team (who beat them earlier in the year). However, they have an easy schedule and a 2 game lead on everyone in the AFC except...

Alfonzo Dennard would have been picked on forever if caught by Andrew Luck

Alfonzo Dennard had just one more Colts player to beat on the way to his first career touchdown in the NFL — the quarterback. The only problem is that quarterback just so happened to be Andrew Luck. Luck tracked Dennard down during his 87-yard interception return, trying to cut off the speedy cornerback along the sideline before reaching the end zone. Luck’s athleticism and speed...

His foot won us rings. He is the only current player in the NFL that has more rings than Brady and Belichick....
