NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Arizona Cardinals The Republic-USA TODAY NETWORK

Phil Dawson, folks. A 57-yarder for the win and a career-long field goal all in one kick. His late-game heroics led the group of Longhorns in the NFL in Week 12.

Jamaal Charles (RB-DEN): Charles had one rush for three yards and two catches for seven yards in a 21-14 loss.

Marquise Goodwin (WR-SF): It’s became clear that the 49ers have most success in the passing game when throwing to Goodwin. He tallied 78 yards on four catches in a loss. He is now averaging 21.4 yards per catch, which is good for 1st in the NFL.

Malcom Brown (DT-NE): With Brown’s playing time decreasing a bit over the past couple weeks, it was nice to see him get back in the action this week. He had two solo tackles in the Patriots 35-17 win.

Brian Orakpo (DE-TEN): Orapko continued his successful season with a four tackle, 1.5 sack game on Sunday.

With the Titans being in an AFC South divisional battle with the Jaguars, Orapko was appreciative of that game-winning field by Dawson against the Jaguars.

Derrick Johnson (ILB-KC): The veteran linebacker had three total tackles in a defensive battle of a game, resulting in a 16-10 loss.

Sam Acho (LB-CHI): Acho had four total tackles (two solo) in a losing effort against the one-loss Eagles.

Quandre Diggs (Nickel CB-DET): Diggs may not have had his best game in coverage going up against Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. But, the nickel cornerback came up with two tackles including one for a loss in a Thanksgiving day loss.

Adrian Colbert (CB-SF): Colbert missed Sunday’s game against the Seahawks with a thumb injury.

Adrian Phillips (SS-LAC): Phillips was tied for the team lead in total tackles this past week. He had seven of them in a winning effort on Thanksgiving day over the Cowboys.

Kenny Vaccaro (SS-NO): Playing against one of the best offenses in the NFL, Vaccaro and the rest of the Saints secondary struggled. This was a rare performance for them. Vaccaro finished with five total tackles, though.

Earl Thomas (FS-SEA): Thomas recorded five solo tackles in a 24-13 win for the Seahawks.

Phil Dawson (K-ARI): Despite having an underwhelming season this year, Mr. Dawson still has it. He got the Cardinals out to a quick 6-0 with a 34-yard and 42-yard field goal. Later on, he added a 48-yarder. With the game on the line, Dawson drilled a 57-yarder (career long) for the win. He also made his only extra point attempt of the game.

Nick Rose (K-WAS): Rose connected on both field goal (28, 33 yarders) and extra point attempts to help the Redskins pick up a 20-10 win on Thanksgiving night. He is now 10-for-11 on field goals and 15-for-16 on extra points.

Justin Tucker (K-BAL): Tucker stayed hot and made some big field goals on Monday night. He connected from 31, 49 and 53 yards and made both extra point attempts to help the Ravens earn a big win.

Fellow Longhorns Earl Thomas and Marquise Goodwin got together for a quick picture after their game on Sunday. Thomas showed some love on Instagram.
