Josh Gordon emerging as a superstar receiver, Carson Palmer and the Cardinals passing attack, Nick Foles rare ratio, more Manning greatness; also Newton, Brady, Gronkowski, Jeffery, Decker and more in Scott Cullens 50 Points on NFL Week 13. Jeremiah Attaochu Jersey . 1. Lions WR Calvin Johnson (6 REC, 101 YDS, 1 TD, 10 targets) leads receivers with 1,299 yards and 12 touchdowns, though his 118.1 receiving yards per game ranks second behind Clevelands Josh Gordon. Gordon (10 REC, 261 YDS, 2 TD, 15 targets) is emerging as a superstar, putting up huge numbers even with Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden at quarterback. 2. Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (24-for-41, 302 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble) had his third consecutive 300-yard passing game, a feat he only accomplished once before -- last November with Oakland. This year, its happening for a team that is in playoff contention and Palmer is doing his part to contribute to that success. The emergence of second-year Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (5 REC, 99 YDS, 1 TD, 10 targets) is playing a big part in Palmers hot streak. Floyd has 18 catches (28 targets) for 396 yards in the last three weeks. During the same period, Larry Fitzgerald has 16 catches (28 targets) for 185 yards, though Fitzgerald has four touchdowns compared to Floyds two. 3. Eagles QB Nick Foles (21-for-34, 237 YDS, 3 TD, 0 INT) is up to 19 touchdown passes without an interception, prompting head coach Chip Kelly to annoint him the starter for the next 1,000 years. No one in the modern era has come close to finishing a season with zero interceptions and this many TD passes. The best modern era single-season TD-INT ratio with two or fewer interceptions, in at least 10 games, belongs to Damon Huard, who had 11 touchdowns and one interception for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2006. 4. Broncos QB Peyton Manning (22-for-35, 403 YDS, 5 TD, 2 INT) is making a mockery of the MVP race. With 41 touchdown passes, Manning has a chance to challenge Tom Bradys record 50 touchdown passes, set in 2007 (which is one more than Manning had for Indianapolis in 2004). 5. Panthers QB Cam Newton (18-for-29, 263 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT; 68 YDS, 1 TD, 5 carries) is tied for ninth among quarterbacks with 19 touchdown passes, but hes been involved in 25 total touchdowns (rushing for six), which ranks fourth, behind Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford. 6. Since throwing for 116 yards in Week Eight against Miami, Patriots QB Tom Brady (29-for-41, 371 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT) has resumed his place as one of the most productive quarterbacks in the game, passing for 1,443 yards and 10 touchdowns, with two interceptions, in the last four games. 7. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (6 REC, 127 YDS, 1 TD, 12 targets) has 560 receiving yards in six games since returning to the lineup, good enough for 10th among tight ends this season. Gronks 93.3 yards per game leads them all, ahead of Jimmy Grahams 82.3 yards per game. For all the talk about how New England needed rookies or newcomer Danny Amendola to step up in the passing game, Patriots WR Julian Edelman (9 REC, 101 YDS, 12 targets) has been the leader of the group, catching 70 passes for 711 yards and four touchdowns, all of which lead (or, in the case of TDs, tie for the lead) the team. 8. Seattles defence locked down Saints QB Drew Brees (23-for-38, 147 YDS, 1 TD), who threw for his fewest yards in a game since December, 2006. 9. Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (12 REC, 249 YDS, 2 TD, 15 targets) is emerging as a star in his second season, and has more receiving yards than Brandon Marshall (1,109 to 990) and has added 115 rushing yards on 14 attempts. 10. Broncos WR Eric Decker (8 REC, 174 YDS, 4 TD, 12 targets), who would have been the third Denver receiver picked in most drafts, now ranks 11th in receiving yards among wide receivers. 11. Raiders WR Andre Holmes (7 REC, 136 YDS, 11 targets) had three catches for 65 yards all season before he was turned loose against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, taking advantage of Denarius Moores injury to establish that he could be a bona fide threat. Holmes is 6-foot-5, out of Hillsdale College, and spent the last couple seasons on the fringes of the Dallas Cowboys roster, dressing for seven games in 2012. 12. Falcons WR Roddy White (10 REC, 143 YDS, 14 targets) may finally -- finally -- be over the high-ankle sprain that has plagued him all year. Sundays breakout was the first time all year that White had more than five catches or 50 yards receiving. 13. Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (211 YDS, 35 carries) is making a second-half charge up the rushing list, with 357 rushing yards in the last two weeks. His 67 carries the last two weeks is his most in back-to-back games, beating the 59 carries he had in the last two weeks of last season, when he was making a push to catch Eric Dickersons single-season rushing record. 14. Lions QB Matthew Stafford (22-for-35, 330 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble) accumulates a lot of yards, sometimes because hes making up for deficits created by turnovers, but Peyton Manning is the only one with more passing yards than Staffords 3,825 and Manning (41) and Drew Brees (29) are the only ones with more touchdown passes than Staffords 27. 15. Lions RB Reggie Bush (182 YDS, 1 TD, 1 fumble, 25 touches) is up to 1,302 yards from scrimmage this season, which ranks fifth. On a per-game basis, Bushs 118.4 yards per game ranks third among runners. Joique Bell (128 YDS, 1 TD, 22 touches), Bushs backup, ranks 20th in yards from scrimmage, with 813. 16. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (22-for-30, 310 YDS, 3 TD) has thrown multiple touchdown passes in six straight games, a span during which he has 14 touchdowns and two interceptions. 17.Bears RB Matt Forte (151 YDS, 25 touches) ranks third in yards from scrimmage with 1,416 and is on pace to beat his career-high of 1,715 yards from scrimmage, set in his rookie season, 2008. Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (115 YDS, 24 touches) continues to lead in yards from scrimmage this season, with 1,523, 60 yards ahead of Kansas City RB Jamaal Charles (120 YDS, 1 TD, 21 touches). 18. Steelers RB LeVeon Bell (136 YDS, 1 TD, 23 touches) had a strong game against Baltimore on Thanksgiving before suffering a concussion as he nearly scored his second touchdown of the game. Bell hopes to get back in the lineup, but if he cant, Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones are next on the depth chart. Dwyer and Jones havent played much, though, combining for a total of 14 touches in the last three games. 19. Panthers TE Greg Olsen (5 REC, 85 YDS) has done it quietly, but ranks seventh among tight ends with 611 receiving yards this season. Since the start of last season, Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez are the only tight ends with more receiving yards than Olsen. 20. Since 2007, Texans WR Andre Johnson (8 REC, 121 YDS, 9 targets) leads the NFL with 94.7 receiving yards per game, six yards per game ahead of Detroits Calvin Johnson. 21. Chiefs QB Alex Smith (26-for-42, 293 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT; 46 YDS, 4 carries) cant compare to Peyton Manning, but hes been productive enough, throwing for 817 yards and seven touchdowns with two interceptions in the last three weeks -- all Chiefs losses. Smith also completed passes to 11 different receivers against Denver Sunday. 22. Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (28-for-43, 331 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT) passed for a season-high 331 yards against the Jets and it was the first time in his career that he threw for 300 yards and multiple touchdowns in the same game. 23. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (19-for-28, 275 YDS, 1 TD) has thrown for 510 yards and four touchdowns, with zero interceptions, in the last two weeks. Slight progress from a generally miserable passing season. 24. Bears QB Josh McCown (23-for-36, 355 YDS, 2 TD) passed for his most yards in a game since October, 2005, when he had back-to-back games with more than 380 yards passing for the Arizona Cardinals. McCown has passed for 707 yards and four touchdowns in the last two games. 25. There was some discussion among TSN.ca staffers about who should be the offensive rookie of the year and I made sure to mention Chargers WR Keenan Allen (8 REC, 106 YDS, 1 fumble, 10 targets), the third-round pick who now has 843 receiving yards on the season, going over 100 yards in five of his last eight games played. 26. Jaguars WR Ace Sanders (8 REC, 67 YDS, 11 targets) is becoming an active part of the Jacksonville passing game. Over the last three weeks, he has 20 catches (26 targets) for 189 yards and, naturally since he plays for the Jaguars, no touchdowns. 27. Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (9 REC, 127 YDS, 1 TD, 15 targets) had a season-high 127 receiving yards against the Jets and scored his first touchdown since Week Three, but hes been quietly productive this season. Hes averaging 67.0 receiving yards per game, which is right on track with last years 67.7 yards per game that led to a career-high 1,083 receiving yards. 28. Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (92 YDS, 19 touches) gets a lot of grief for his inconsistency, but 907 yards from scrimmage this season ranks 15th among running backs. 29. Titans RB Chris Johnson (101 YDS, 1 TD, 24 touches) went over 100 yards from scrimmage for the third time this season. Hes over 1,000 yards from scrimmage (1,042), but is on pace for a career-low in that category. 30. Texans RB Ben Tate (102 YDS, 3 TD, 22 carries) rushed for more than 100 yards for the first time since November, 2011 against Cleveland. With Arian Foster out, there is still a real opportunity for Tate to finish the year strong as the Texans lead back. 31. Falcons RB Steven Jackson (84 YDS, 2 TD, 23 carries) had his most productive game of the season Sunday, against the Bills in Toronto, which says something about how this year has gone for him, but Jackson does have 163 yards from scrimmage, with three touchdowns, in the last two weeks. 32. Ravens RB Ray Rice (70 YDS, 18 touches) had a seaso
