The Best Moments You Missed From Yesterday’s NFL Action

Cheerleaders

[credit provider=”NFL Red Zone”]

Of the 15 games that have been played so far in week 15 of the NFL, the average score has been 33-13, with only three games decided by eight points or less. Three teams were shutout and seven teams lost by at least three touchdowns.The result was a lot of games that were not competitive. But there were still plenty of funny and entertaining moments.

From spectators being clobbered, to disturbing touchdown celebrations and Troy Polamalu taking a nap, we’ve got a roundup of the NFL action that you might not see on the highlight shows.
