Two weeks to go and there's so much left to figure out when it comes to NFL 2013.

Four teams have wrapped up playoff berths but only one club (Indianapolis Colts) has secured a division title.
And what a week that Week 15 turned out to be when it came to scoring, so much so that five teams put at least 30 points on the board in losing efforts.

When it came to offense, there were a lot of candidates for our weekly awards. When it came to defense, let’s just say we did "The Best" we could.

Matt Flynn, Jamaal Charles And Vernon Davis Headline The NFL's Week 15 Honor Roll Slideshow


QB Matt Flynn

A Green Bay Packers quarterback had not beaten the Cowboys in Dallas since 1989 when Don Majkowski pulled his magic act against a team that finished 1-15 that season. Flynn saw his club fall behind 26-3 in the first half but remained unfazed. The well-traveled quarterback overcame an interception by throwing for 299 yards and four touchdowns in a rousing 37-36 win over Jason Garrett's startled club.


RB Jamaal Charles

It was difficult to decide whether Charles should be given the nod at running back or wide receiver this week considering his numbers. You have to give the Oakland defense credit for limiting the Chiefs' threat to 20 yards rushing and one score on eight carries. Of course, Charles totaled 195 yards and four touchdowns on eight receptions, his trips to the end zone covering 49, 39, 16 and 71 yards, and Kansas City rolled to a 56-31 victory.


WR Greg Jennings

In a week full of surprises, Leslie Frazier and his team had one waiting for the rejuvenated Philadelphia Eagles, winners of five straight games. Quarterback Matt Cassel had a field day against Chip Kelly's defense, throwing for 382 yards and a score in his team's 48-30 win. And nearly half of Cassel’s yards and 11 of his 26 completions went to Jennings, who totaled 163 yards receiving and a score in the 18-point upset.


TE Vernon Davis

It was one of the more exciting offensive plays of Week 15 as the downfield target hauled in a 52-yard touchdown pass from teammate Colin Kaepernick late in the second quarter. Davis finished with five receptions for a team-high 79 yards and a score in the Niners' 33-14 triumph in Tampa. The victory gave head coach Jim Harbaugh 10 wins for the third time in as many seasons.


Offensive Line: Chargers

The Denver Broncos defense certainly has its issues but let's not take away anything from what Mike McCoy’s team did last Thursday night in the Mile High City. The Chargers ran 44 times for 177 yards and controlled the clock for 38:49 in a 27-20 surprise of the first-place Broncos. San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers was sacked just once and his team played turnover-free football in a win that kept the Bolts alive in the playoff race.


DE Robert Quinn

In one of the more stunning results of the weekend, Jeff Fisher showed he was king for the afternoon as his Rams had their way with visiting New Orleans Saints, 27-16. Quinn, now second in the NFL with 15.0 sacks this season, totaled five tackles, a pair of sacks and also forced a fumble and recovered one as well as the St. Louis defense forced quarterback Drew Brees into three turnovers


LB Bobby Wagner

Pete Carroll's secondary got all of the accolades in Sunday's 23-0 whitewash of the New York Giants as cornerbacks Richard Sherman (2) and Byron Maxwell (2) and free safety Earl Thomas (1) combined for five interceptions of Eli Manning. But the Giants were also limited to 25 yards rushing and Wagner was busy, totaling 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks in the convincing victory.


CB Captain Munnerlyn

Yo, Holmes. Perhaps the Panthers' secondary isn't the weak link as suggested by a certain Jets receiver in the week before the game. Munnerlyn looked more like a general than a captain, totaling four tackles, two sacks and returning a Geno Smith interception 41 yards for a score in Carolina's 30-20 win.


K Justin Tucker

The second-year pro was once again busy for the defending Super Bowl champion as Tucker provided all the points in Monday night's 18-16 win at Detroit. The specialist connected from 29, 24, 32, 49, 53 and 61 yards at Ford Field, with the final kick coming with 38 seconds left. Tucker has now hit on 33 straight field goal attempts this season and accounted for 130 of the Ravens' 296 points.


Coach: Marc Trestman

It has been an up-and-down year in the Windy City thanks to injuries behind center and the disappointing play of a once-proud defensive unit. But the first-time NFL head coach made a decision, stuck to his guns and reinserted quarterback Jay Cutler back into the starting lineup. Now healed, Cutler brushed off two interceptions and threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-31 win over the Browns in Cleveland. The Bears are back in first place by themselves in the NFC North.
