Designing custom cleats for NFL stars

Custom cleats are all the rage in the NFL, and they'll be on display in a big way this week. So we gave apparel designers a list of players, a blank canvas and one instruction: the crazier, the better.

Have to wonder where the safety help was on Carson Palmer's TD pass to J.J. Nelson. That's a post route to the deep middle of the field. The safety has to increase his depth and play to the speed of Nelson. Can't get beat over the top. Cardinals lead 30-23 in the fourth quarter.

Andy Reid told me he told Eric Berry today: "You can run for governor of Georgia and No. 90 can be your best man." Big games by both.

Excellent coverage from Bucs safety Keith Tandy on the INT...Get to the hip of the WR, squeeze the route and locate the ball. Nice finish to pick of that pass from Philip Rivers. Bucs hold the 28-21 lead in the fourth quarter.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Chargers QB Philip Rivers was just intercepted in the end zone by the Buccaneers. He now has 6 INT in the 4th quarter when it's a 1-score game, the most in the NFL.

Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack now has 3 forced fumbles in the 4th quarter in his last 5 games. It's the 2nd straight week he had a strip sack in the 4th quarter and recovered the fumble.

Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion) isn't playing for the second straight week but he is making a few fans happy.

How do you win games in the fourth quarter? With a big-time pass rush (or pass-rusher). That's what the Raiders have in Khalil Mack, who just clinched a game for the second consecutive week with a strip sack. Mack is a great player regardless, but he seems to shift into competitive overdrive in the fourth quarter. The Raiders will take it.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Khalil Mack is closing out games again for the Raiders. There's the strip-sack of Tyrod Taylor to force a turnover. Mack just takes over in the fourth quarter. And shows up in critical game situations.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Rams TE Lance Kendricks, on how they salvage this season: "It feels like a broken record. We just gotta play with pride. We gotta have a sense of pride and heart. There's flashes of it, last week in the first half of the game. We just take turns doing something wrong. If we're all on the same page, at the same time, consistently, we're a very good team."

ESPN Stats and Information  

Colin Kaepernick had 5 sacks and 5 pass attempts on Sunday. The Elias Sports Bureau notes that he is the first QB to get sacked at least 5 times and have 5 or fewer pass attempts since Parnell Dickinson of the 0-14 first-year 1976 Buccaneers.

Y-Shake route on the Cameron Brate TD. And a really good throw from Jameis Winston. Small window to deliver that ball. Release up the field, stem outside and then carry to the seam. That created some separation versus the linebacker in coverage. After the two-point conversion, Bucs lead to Chargers 28-21 in the fourth quarter.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has moved into third place on the NFL's all-time receptions list, passing Cris Carter and Marvin Harrison today. The NFL receptions record of 1,549 is held by Jerry Rice.
