Every NFL season offers much to marvel at or laugh about, and plenty of chances to shake our heads in befuddled wonderment.That final description certainly fits the mind-numbing off-field news that plagued the league this year, beginning in the preseason with the Ray Rice case. For anyone who hasnt had enough of that stuff, look elsewhere.These offbeat awards will recognize the good, bad and ugly on the field.BEST GAME: Green Bay 26, New England 21, in a possible Super Bowl preview. Aaron Rodgers outdueled Tom Brady, although the difference might have been the Packers defence. On the Patriots final series, rookie safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix blanketed Rob Gronkowski on a deep pass on second down. Brady was sacked on third down, Stephen Gostkowski missed a 47-yard field goal, and the host Packers ran out the clock.Runner-up: San Diego 38, San Francisco 35. In Week 16, the Chargers rallied from a 21-point hole in the second half. Philip Rivers hit Malcom Floyd for an 11-yard TD to tie it, and Nick Novak kicked a 40-yard field goal in overtime after a Niners fumble.WORST GAME: Atlanta 56, Tampa Bay 14. A nationally televised Thursday night debacle in September, the worst performance by the Buccaneers, which is saying something considering they are 2-13 now. The Falcons led 35-0 before the Buccaneers picked up a first down. Atlantas offensive starters left after Steven Jacksons 3-yard touchdown run made it 49-0 before the midway point of the third quarter.Runner-up: Jets 16, Titans 11. The only such final score in NFL history. Hopefully the action from this game will quickly be forgotten.BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR: It didnt win the game, and wound up being not particularly impactful in the grand scheme for his team. Yet Odell Beckham Jr.s phenomenal three-fingered touchdown catch while falling backward into the end zone against Dallas cant be topped.When Im standing on the sidelines, Im rooting for him all the way, coach Tom Coughlin said. When I get to Monday, sometimes I run it back an extra time.Runners-up: This one did win a game. Vikings rookie LB Anthony Barr chased down Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, stripped the ball and took it 27 yards for a touchdown in overtime and a 19-13 victory.And Beast Mode 2, Marshawn Lynchs sensational 79-yard touchdown run for Seattle against Arizona in Week 16.WORST PLAY OF THE YEAR: Figures it would be the Raiders. WR James Jones fumbled twice on one play vs. Houston. He lost the ball, picked it up and started running again, only to be stripped a second time and the Texans recovered.Runner-up: A tie between Chicago DE LaMarr Houston and Detroit LB Stephen Tulloch. Each tore an ACL on sack celebrations.BIGGEST SURPRISE (PLAYER): The Ravens were in a dire situation after Rices suspension and injuries/mediocre play by his replacement, Bernard Pierce. In stepped a true journeyman, Justin Forsett, and hes been magical, juicing up the Baltimore offence with a combination of the steady and the spectacular.Runner-up: Detroit safety Glover Quin, like Forsett a former Texan, and like Forsett, a journeyman who has found a home, solidifying the Lions secondary.BIGGEST SURPRISE (TEAM): Only because they were expected to head directly south from their recent string of 8-8 finishes, it has to be the Cowboys. Rather than plummet despite an undertalented defence and questionable coaching, Dallas has surged to the NFC East title, possibly a first-round playoff bye.Runner-up: Buffalo. No, the Bills wont snap their league-high streak of non-playoff seasons, now at 15. But they wont have a losing record, either, and made their future look brighter for once.BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT (PLAYER): Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, although we very much want to give him some slack. Griffin still doesnt appear fully recovered from his knee woes, and other injuries have slowed him. That said, RG3 struggles with too many fundamentals, including footwork — odd for a guy with Olympic running skills.Runner-up: Saints safety Jairus Byrd, their top off-season signing, had no interceptions through four games and then went on injured reserve (knee).BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT (TEAM): Da Bears. Dysfunctional as they come, the Bears were the fashionable pick as a rising team this season. Instead, they flopped so badly a total housecleaning could be in order.Runner-up: San Francisco, which because of front-office discord is about to lose the best coach it has had since Bill Walsh.BEST PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCER (TV): Mike Tirico, ESPN. We should just rename this award for the top, by far, play-by-play guy on TV, regardless of the sport. Tirico especially shines on the NFL, where his understanding of the game and, especially, its nuances and rules — from the obvious to the obscure — serves the viewer. So does his brutal honesty, something rare among NFL broadcasters.Runner-up: Kevin Harlan, CBS. Also give a listen to him on Westwood Ones radiocasts of national games. Hes so descriptive you feel as if you are in the stadium.BEST ANALYST (TV): Rich Gannon, CBS. Want to know how and why something happened? Gannon provides it.Who messed up and who performed above and beyond? Gannon provides it.Some humour? That, too.And he works Sunday games with Harlan — a duo worthy of being the networks top team.Runner-up: Now that both of them are willing to criticize when its called for, Jon Gruden (ESPN) and Troy Aikman (Fox) deserve recognition for their strong work.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Patriots Jerseys . Compared to what hes gone through in recent weeks, that seemed like a breeze. Speaking to The Associated Press on Friday at an NBA Cares event, Silver said hes thrilled that the leagues attention can be on the championship series between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs -- and not, as it was for so much of the post-season, on the off-the-court matters involving the banishment of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and now the looming sale of that franchise. New England Patriots Store . Cavaliers shooting guard Craig Ehlo makes a solid play on the ball, but still Jordan hits the amazing shot. https://www.patriotsjerseysale.com/ . On Sunday, hell attempt to become the youngest driver to win a NASCAR Nationwide race on Iowas short track. The 20-year-old Blaney wont be the only kid pushing a podium finish. New England Patriots Gear . The Sioux Falls Canaries scored two in the seventh and three more in the eighth to come back from a 3-0 deficit and defeat the Winnipeg Goldeyes 5-3 in front of 6,769 at Shaw Park on Sunday afternoon. Patriots Jerseys 2019 . I suppose Sternberg has earned the right to speak out since his Rays, despite one of the lowest payrolls in the Majors at $58 million, are entering the final weekend of the regular season holding down the first Wild Card spot in the American League, one game ahead of Cleveland and two up on Texas. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Joffrey Lupul will miss the Toronto Maple Leafs game at the Columbus Blue Jackets with a bone bruise in his foot. Coach Randy Carlyle called Lupuls status "questionable" after the winger missed the morning skate at Nationwide Arena the day after taking a shot to his right foot in practice but cast doubt on Lupul playing unless he had a "speedy recovery." Lupuls problem is more a weight-bearing one than being able to get his foot into his skate, according to Carlyle. Josh Leivo, recalled from the AHLs Toronto Marlies, replaced Lupul in the lineup Friday night. Carlyle expressed some displeasure Thursday about his players not wearing shot-blockers to protect their feet in practice. "(The message) was just about common sense, guys," he said. "You dont drive your car anymore without a seat belt. Its basically the same principle." Right-winger David Clarkson will make his Leafs debut after serving a 10-game suspension. "Its exciting to be back and a part of something," Clarkson said earlier Friday. "Ill know more afterr the game but its definitely exciting to be back and be back at it again and a part of the locker-room.dddddddddddd Just the little things you miss not being around the guys." Carlyle and his staff cautioned Clarkson not to try to do too much in his Leafs debut. "Were not asking him to do anything other than just play a game, play a solid game," he said. "Be an up-and-down winger, bang and crash when he has the opportunity, go to the net. Its not going to be any different than what were going to ask him 10 games from now." Goaltender Jonathan Bernier gets the start. He went 2-1 with a 2.02 goals-against average and .928 save percentage in his career against the Blue Jackets while playing for the Los Angeles Kings. Toronto activated enforcer Frazer McLaren from injured reserve Friday after he missed the first 10 games with a broken right pinky finger. Blue Jackets tough guy Jared Boll missed the morning skate with a stomach illness, but he was in the lineup. Reigning Vezina Trophy-winner Sergei Bobrovsky will get the start in goal for Columbus.
