the Dallas Cowboys desperately needed to find wins to stay in the tight NFC East race,

Despite all of that animosity, Kelly told reporters in a conference call earlier this week he’d “love” to shake McCoy’s hand Sunday. McCoy, unsurprisingly, said he wants no part of it.

LeSean McCoy on Chip: “Why do you want me to shake that guy’s hand? … “What’s the big issue?” “I gotta go, man. I’ll see y’all Sunday.”

Marco Murray, is apparently feuding with Kelly as well. Murray, who’s only averaging 3.5 yards per carry this season, reportedly met with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie this week and criticized Kelly’s approachability. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says Murray could sink as low as fourth on the depth chart at running back this week.

Though Murray may not see the field Sunday, there’s little doubt that McCoy will be Buffalo’s featured back. In 10 games with the Bills this season, McCoy is averaging 4.6 yards per carry and has scored three touchdowns. Given that the Eagles have the sixth-worst rushing defense in the league, McCoy may finally have a chance to extract revenge on the football field Sunday instead of through the media and passive aggressive gestures.

Similarly, the Dallas Cowboys desperately needed to find wins to stay in the tight NFC East race, but beating the Green Bay Packers was a tall task, and they proved they weren’t up to it when Green Bay got the win.

In the finale of the day, a key AFC matchup between the Patriots and Texans had a big impact on the postseason race. New England faced its first three-game losing streak since 2002, but beat the Texans easily to clinch a playoff spot and jump back into first place in the AFC. The Texans had a chance to assert their grip on the AFC South, but fell back into second place behind the Colts.

Below, we’ve got all of the Week 14 games, with scores updated throughout the day.

Seahawks’ Cliff Avril checks on Tony Romo after hit injured Cowboys QB

Cliff Avril followed through with plans to reach out to Tony Romo and received an optimistic response from the Dallas Cowboys quarterback, who suffered a fractured bone in his back after a hit by the Seattle Seahawks defensive end.

“You take care of the NFC West, we will see yall in the playoffs,” Romo texted to Avril, the defensive end told the Star-Telegram on Friday.

How does Harrison celebrate? By needling himself instead of the league.

At 3:29 a.m. Friday — five hours after the Pittsburgh Steelers concluded their preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers — Harrison posted an Instagram picture of himself undergoing an intense form of acupuncture called dry-needle therapy.

Harrison must have gone straight from the team plane to the therapy.

“Grind never stops,” said Harrison in the post.

Harrison got into dry-needle therapy around 2010 to alleviate muscle tension from back surgery that repaired a herniated disc. The routine is painful enough that some teammates won’t do it with him.

Harrison, 38, believes the healing powers of the therapy have prolonged his career.

“It’s painful as hell … but very powerful,” Harrison said. “It makes you sore the next day, but the day after you feel fine. I’m not the only person that does it. Three to five people [in the locker room] do it.”

Gabbert started each of the first three preseason games, leading the 49ers offense to touchdowns on three of the eight possessions he played. He finished 12-of-22 for 146 yards with a touchdown for a passer rating of 90.3. He also rushed for 33 yards on five carries.

Kaepernick started the preseason finale against the Chargers and fared better than he did in his exhibition debut against the Green Bay Packers. Kaepernick finished 13-of-24 for 117 yards for a passer rating of 67.5 and led one touchdown drive. He also rushed for 56 yards on eight carries.
