Boston College Football: Eagles in the NFL, Week 15

Take a look at who's making an impact as the NFL season winds down.

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Anthony Castonzo & Gosder Cherilus, Indianapolis Colts

The Colts earned some extra clothing thanks to their 17-10 win over Houston. The AFC South champions average over 420 yards per game, third best in the NFL, and have the best passing attack thanks to over 310 yards from Andrew Luck and his stout offensive line.

Jo-Lonn Dunbar, St. Louis Rams

Dunbar had a single solo tackle in the 12-6 loss last Thursday by STL to the Arizona Cardinals.

Kasim Edebali, New Orleans Saints

Edebali made two tackles in the Saints' 31-15 win over Chicago. Despite being well under .500 at 6-8, New Orleans controls their own destiny in the NFC South with a half-game lead over the 5-8-1 Carolina Panthers.

Matt Hasselbeck, Indianapolis Colts

Hasselbeck dressed and backed up Luck in the win over the Texans.

Mark Herzlich, New York Giants

With rumors abound about Tom Coughlin's future in Gotham, the Giants in uniform are left to fight for a roster spot. They handled Washington, 24-13, with the former Eagle tallying four tackles. At 5-9, New York will miss the playoffs but can still play spoiler with games left against St. Louis (no spoiler there) and Philadelphia (fighting for the playoff lives following a loss to Dallas).

Mathias Kiwanuka, New York Giants

Kiwanuka did not play after being placed on injured reserve.

Luke Kuechly, Carolina Panthers

The Panthers are hanging around on the Saints despite losing quarterback Cam Newton to a car accident. The Cardiac Cats defeated Tampa Bay (who is in the Marcus Mariota Sweepstakes), 19-17. Kuechly had six tackles and an interception, increasing his NFL tackle lead with 138 takedowns.

Al Louis-Jean, Chicago Bears

ALJ had a single tackle in the Bears' loss to New Orleans. Chicago will miss the playoffs this year.

Chris Pantale, New York Jets

Pantale saw game time, and the Jets defeated Tennessee, 16-11. That all but means New York will miss out on a chance to get Mariota with the first overall pick. Please, football gods, give us Jameis Winston in New York with the sixth pick overall.

Kevin Pierre-Louis, Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks are making a run at the first overall seed in the NFC, but they'll do it without KPL, who was placed on injured reserve.

Ryan Quigley, New York Jets

Quigley punted seven times for 352 yards, averaging 50.3 yards per punt. One of his punts landed inside the 20, and he had a long of 56 yards. Let's take this opportunity to remind everyone that the Jets won, 16-11, and that they are now 3-11. If the season ended today, they would draft either fifth or sixth overall.

Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

The race for the NFC South continues with Atlanta in the mix as well. Matt Ryan went 26-of-37 for 310 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-20 losing effort against Pittsburgh. He also rushed three times for 27 yards. His 4,112 yards ranks fourth in the NFL, and it is the fourth consecutive season in which he's thrown for over 4,000 yards.

Damik Scafe, San Diego Chargers

Scafe is on injured reserve.

Andre Williams, New York Giants

AW44 had 44 yards on 18 carries to lead all Giant rushers in their win over Washington. He added nine yards receiving.
