TJ's Take on Week 13

Here's my quick review of everything we saw in Week 13 of the 2005 NFL season:

Offensive player of the week
Bengals QB Carson Palmer. Threw for 227 yards and three touchdowns as Cincinnati took a two-game lead in the AFC North by winning at Pittsburgh, 38-21.

Defensive player of the week
Buccaneers CB Ronde Barber. Totaled eight tackles, three interceptions and knocked down three more passes as Tampa Bay baffled the Saints, 10-3.

Coaching move of the Week
Mike Tice. Vikings were left for dead, but a five-game winning streak means they're still alive in NFC North chase.

Next week
Nine more divisional games (all rematches). And can Jacksonville (who always plays Colts tough) end Indianapolis' attempt at history?
