Well if you are superstitious, this week probably strengthened your beliefs. Week 13 was a strange one. AJ Green and Greg Olsen had their seasons ended by foot injuries. Tyler Boyd, Julio Jones, Lamar Jackson, Matt Breida, James Conner and many others all had injury scares and left the game at some point. Two players broke their legs. Even the games themselves were weird. Luck and the Colts were held scoreless by a Jacksonville defense that has been bad this year. The Falcons had 131 yards of offense. Let's hope we don't see a repeat going into (for most of us) the first week of the playoffs.

It was Justin Jackson, not Austin Ekeler that played extremely well in Week 13's matchup with the Steelers. Jackson rushed 8 times for 63 yards and 1 touchdown, leading the Chargers to a surprising upset/comeback. Ekeler was continuously stuffed at the line, which is now the second time that Ekeler has failed to produce with Melvin Gordon out. The Chargers face the league worse Cincinnati Bengals' run defense in Week 14, and if Gordon sits again, Jackson is a must start. Pay attention this week to see what the coaches will do, but it seems like a no brainer to start Jackson in the Gordon role and let Ekeler stick with his pass catching duties.
