At this point in the season, I am totally against the Dallas Cowboys resting players because I'm selfish. If Romo were go to down, Mark Sanchez would be next in line. People have been voicing the idea for quite some time that Elliott's workload should be lightened in order to keep him fresh, but the rookie claims that even though he has played more games this season than he would in a college season, he played nearly every offensive snap in a typical game at Ohio State.

Almost 24 hours later, it was still though to stomach for Baltimore fans and the head coach. So in this rough year, the Colts lost every game they played to a team that would eventually represent the AFC in the postseason.

Coach Mike McCarthy clearly is looking to reduce Montgomery's workload elsewhere because he has taken on a full-time role at halfback. "We thought it was a pretty good play", Thielen said.
