A look at what went down in the early games of Week 13, including a big day by Carolina’s DeAngelo Williams at Lambeau Field.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — A couple of thoughts floated through my mind as I watched the steady downpour saturate Gillette Stadium and the Steelers rip this game away from the Patriots in the second half on their way to a 33-10 victory.
RB Adrian Peterson will see some carries behind RB Matt Forte with Jones out. TE Desmond Clark is active, but he’s an inconsistent fantasy option.
DE Jared Allen and S Madieu Williams are active and will start, as expected.
Tyler Thigpen is having a dreadful game in Oakland, throwing for 150 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. Of course, that hasn’t hurt Tony Gonzalez, who has eight receptions and 110 of those yards.
Matt Cassel is a nice player, but come on, he’s not Tom Brady. And that was proven on Sunday.
Don’t count on the Browns receivers to have much fantasy impact down the stretch now that Derek Anderson is likely out for the year.
The struggling Browns not only lost to the Colts on Sunday, they may have lost starting QB Derek Anderson and star TE Kellen Winslow to serious injuries.
Thomas Jones just scored his second touchdown of the afternoon, this one on a 29-yard run, during the first half of Sunday’s game against the Broncos. The veteran runner now has 105 yards and two scores on just nine carries.
Thomas Jones, who has become an elite running back in fantasy circles this season, just took one 59 yards to the house for his 12th touchdown of the season. He’s become a must-start running back in most leagues.
DeAngelo Williams has now scored four 1-yard touchdowns in Sunday’s game at Green Bay. He’s scored a total of 31 points on NFL.com and continues to be one of the most consistent and productive backs in fantasy football.
The saying usually goes something like this: The only thing that can stop the (fill in the blank) is themselves. Well, when it comes to the New York Giants that might not even come into play.
The potential distraction of the Friday night shooting at a New York night club that injured wide receiver Plaxico Burress and involved, in some manner, linebacker Antonio Pierce, never reached its potential.
I’m going to get about 1,000 “Should I bench Clinton Portis this week” questions … So here is what you should do.
The Browns lost QB Derek Anderson late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 10-6 loss to the Colts to an undisclosed injury.

Peyton Manning threw for a dreadful 125 yards with no touchdowns and had three turnovers in a 10-6 win over the Browns.
That was good for one measly fantasy points on NFL.com.
DeAngelo Williams just scored his third 1-yard touchdown of the afternoon in what’s become a great game in Green Bay. While his yardage total (75 scrimmage) isn’t great, his three scores will make Williams a top fantasy scorer once again.
