It’s Wednesday morning. Which means it’s time to put a bow on the awards week.

Coach of the Week: Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel.
The Dolphins have quickly embraced the trend, bolstered by the good faith of their first-year coach. On Sunday, the Dolphins repeatedly took the best punches the Bills had to offer and still managed to emerge with enough points to win.

Game of the week: Steelers receiver George PickensOBJ type capture.
The Steelers quarterback in the first half of Thursday night’s game in Cleveland Mitch Trubisky He did what he had to do – believe that Georgia starter George Pickins is open, even if it doesn’t look like it.
The ball went in. Pickins reached up to grab a hand. This angle It makes it more amazing.
And while Sunday night in 2014 from OBJ It will always be more memorable, it can be argued that the Pickens catch was even better. First, he didn’t see the ball until the last second; Beckham had time to follow the throw and prepare to catch it. Second, Pickens turned around to adjust the momentum that had carried him in one direction. It wasn’t a change of direction for Beckham.
