Week Fifteen in Review

About the Blog

Week Fifteen of the NFL season is complete and just two weeks remain in the regular season.  Mike Leach of the Cardinals received some national attention for his athletic play downing a punt deep in the Thursday Night Football game against the Rams.  Leach is the longest tenured snapper in the NFL and the game was the 217th of his career.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports revealed on Sunday that the Pro Bowl will experiment with narrowed goal posts for kicks by reducing the posts from 18.6 feet to 14 feet.  During the preseason, the NFL experimented with the kicking game by moving extra points from the 2 yard line to the 18 yard line.

Four different snappers recorded tackles in punt coverage this week, with Andrew DePaola (Buccaneers), John Denney (Dolphins), Beau Brinkley (Titans) and Jeremy Cain (Bears) tallied solo tackles and Jon Condo (Raiders) adding an assisted tackle.
