The New England Patriots are the top-ranked team in the NFL when it comes to scoring (30.6 points per game) for the second time in the past three seasons. They are always at or near the top on that side of the ball, but we all know that defense wins championships, and they have been lacking in that department in recent years.

However, during the second half of 2014, the Pats have been picking it up when it comes to red-zone defense.

With former New Orleans Saints QBs coach Joe Lombardi bringing his version of the Saints offense to the Detroit Lions as their offensive coordinator in 2014, they selected tight end Eric Ebron with the 10th overall pick in the draft. The expectation was that Ebron eventually would fill the Jimmy Graham role as a high-volume pass-catcher.

In 2012, C.J. Spiller looked like he was prepared to settle in as a play-making high-end NFL running back. He averaged a whopping 6.0 yards per carry and 10.7 yards per pass that season and finished with 1,703 total yards and eight touchdowns.

However, in the two seasons since Doug Marrone took over as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills, Spiller has totaled just 1,524 yards and three scores. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry and 5.6 yards per catch last season and 3.9 yards per carry and 6.8 yards per catch this year.

For all of the MVP buzz that Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray have been generating -- or at least that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been generating on their behalf -- Dez Bryant has continued to churn out dominating stats this season, too.

With one game remaining, Bryant is just 12 yards shy of the 1,233 yards he racked up in 16 games last season. He already has one more score (14) than he did in 2013 and his yards per catch (14.5) is better than it was last year (13.3 YPC).

The Philadelphia Eagles used a first-round pick in 2014 to draft linebacker Marcus Smith II. The plan was for him to be a pass-rusher on the outside but injuries have forced him to practice on the inside.

In the end, he hasn't been able to get on the field much at any position. Although he was active in Week 16, he didn't step foot on the field.

Fantasy owners who rolled the dice by drafting Josh Gordon as a lottery ticket back in September failed to get the playoff payoff for which we were hoping. He totaled 15 catches for 195 yards on 29 targets during his first two games, but he managed only nine receptions for 108 yards on 18 targets during the past three outings. He has yet to catch a touchdown in 2014.
