Click here for D/ST rankings. David Akers, Lions: Kicked a 63-yard bomb in Week 1 and still managed to post the worst field-goal percentage of his career (.690, 29-for-42). The dropoff was due to an injury Akers suffered during a kickoff in which, Akers said, "I did a full-on Charlie Brown. " Healthy again, the Lions should be a good fit for a resurgence. Dan Bailey, Cowboys: Improved his field-goal accuracy from 86.5 to 93.5 percent. Safe pick. Matt Bryant, Falcons: Bryant turned 38 in May, so it's amazing he hasn't missed a 50-yard attempt in 3 years (7-for-7)

SEATTLE - Russell Wilson threw a disputed 24-yard touchdown to Golden Tate on the final play of the game, and the Seattle Seahawks rallied to beat the Green Bay Packers, 14-12, on Monday night in a controversial ending. Wilson scrambled from the pocket and threw to the corner of the end zone as time expired. Tate shoved Green Bay's Sam Shields out of the way, then wrestled with M.D. Jennings for possession. It was ruled on the field as a touchdown and after a lengthy review, referee Wayne Elliott came out from under the hood and announced "the ruling on the field stands" as CenturyLink Field erupted in celebration.

MINNEAPOLIS - Aaron Rodgers had some competition from fearless rookie Christian Ponder. The defending champion Packers still kept their cool. Rodgers kept Green Bay unbeaten with three touchdowns and 335 yards passing, holding off the plucky Ponder in the rookie's first start to defeat the Minnesota Vikings, 33-27, on Sunday. Rodgers completed his first 13 passes and finished 24 for 30, another near-unstoppable afternoon for him. Ponder was picked off twice in the third quarter by Charles Woodson, who almost grabbed a couple more interceptions, but he kept the Vikings in it the whole game after a 71-yard completion on his first play.

RUN DEFENSE: The Eagles did an excellent job of neutralizing the Packers' rookie running back, Brandon Jackson, holding him to 40 yards on 15 carries. Jackson had just 3 carries of more than 3 yards. Grade: A-plus PASS DEFENSE: Anytime you can hold Brett Favre to 4.9 yards per attempt and no touchdowns and sack him 4 times, you have to be happy. But Favre twice escaped tacklers and made big plays on the Packers' game-tying third-quarter scoring drive. And Takeo Spikes blew a golden opportunity for an interception late in the second quarter that would have given the Eagles the ball inside the Green Bay 25. Grade: A-minus RUSHING OFFENSE: Brian Westbrook averaged 4.3 yards per carry, but Donovan McNabb's recovering right knee prevented him from posing any kind of a threat as a runner, and Correll Buckhalter managed just 5 yards on 4 carries.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - For Eli Manning and the New York Giants, Lambeau Field has become a familiar launching pad. After beating the Green Bay Packers at home for the second time in four years, they only hope this trip ends the same way - at the Super Bowl. Manning threw for three touchdowns and the Giants shocked the Packers, 37-20, in an NFC divisional playoff game on Sunday. Manning threw for 330 yards, sending the Giants to San Francisco for the NFC championship game next Sunday night.

THROW-BY-THROW DESCRIPTION GREEN BAY - Here is a description of each throw from Sam Bradford's 10-for-10, 121-yard, three-touchdown performance Saturday night at Lambeau Field. Several of the throws weren't especially long or difficult, but it was remarkable that none went over, behind, or in front of the intended receiver. Once, Jordan Matthews had to leave his feet to gather in a pass, but it seemed to have been thrown high to get it over the coverage. Bradford wasn't under a ton of pressure, but he did take a few hits.

Peyton Manning stepped up to the podium for a postgame interview like he has done so many times following an Indianapolis win. But this time there were no touchdown passes to review, no career milestones to celebrate. The defense, not the quarterback, was the star. Defensive end Robert Mathis scooped up quarterback Derek Anderson's fumble and rumbled 37 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter as the Colts stayed in the thick of the AFC playoff chase by winning their fifth straight, 10-6 over the host Cleveland Browns.

Dan Bailey, Cowboys: Led the NFL with 56 made PATs last year. The year before, Denver's Matt Prater set the record with 75. In this new era with the longer PATs, it is unlikely Prater's record will ever be broken. Connor Barth, Broncos: Denver needed to create a roster spot for Evan Mathis, so they cut Barth and decided to go with Temple product Brandon McManus. McManus, who hit a 70-yard field goal in a live practice drill recently, was an erratic 2-for-5 on field goal attempts of 40+ yards last season.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - This was part of the scenario that optimists around Philadelphia once argued would happen, part of a pipe dream of an Eagles resurgence that fueled hope in October and November. The Giants are amid their annual late-season collapse, which would have opened an opportunity for the Eagles to pounce on a playoff spot. The problem turned out to be that the Eagles failed to fulfill their end, leaving the Giants' current swoon as nothing more than an opportunity for Schadenfreude in Philadelphia.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Maybe it was appropriate that yesterday was Halloween. New York Jets fans who came to the New Meadowlands Stadium were tricked into believing they would be treated to a high-quality football game. It stood to reason. The Jets entered the game as one of three teams with a single loss. The Packers probably expected to be better than 4-3, but still were considered one of the top teams in the NFC. Both teams ranked in the top 13 in scoring, and the Jets ranked fourth in scoring defense.
