NFL Week 13: Shaun Suisham, Jay Feely & Phil Dawson

Pittsburgh pulled out an important 23-20 divisional win at Baltimore. The fourth quarter comeback culminated in a 42 yard Shaun Suisham field goal as time expired.
"I don't care how we win. Certainly I'd rather win by two touchdowns, but that's the way the game played out, and I'm happy I made it....
Right hash - oh, I don't care about that. There's not a specific spot for [the offense] to get to. Everybody did their job; I appreciate it....
It feels good when you make field goals, especially when you win the game. It's exciting right now; it was a big win for us."
Two former Jets players now playing for the Cardinals returned to New York to play against their old team. With field goals of 48 and 35 yards, kicker Jay Feely accounted for all of Arizona's scoring in the 7-6 loss.
"It was important for Kerry [Rhodes] and me to come in here and have a good game. We talked about it during the week. It was probably a little different for Kerry and I coming back here with what Rex wrote in his book about Kerry. I’m sure there was something extra to this game for him. When a coach calls you out you want to respond and prove him wrong when you play against his team."
A wet field and Raiders defensive tackle Desmond Bryant's hand brought Browns kicker Phil Dawson's streak of 29 consecutive made field goals to an end - his 28 yard attempt in the third quarter was blocked. Cleveland did however win the game 20-17.
"Our guys up front couldn’t get their cleats in the ground. There’s really nothing you can do when the footing’s that bad. The advantage goes to the defense, and they were able to get a little push and there you go."
