Most weeks there are a handful of NFL games that come down to the final seconds.
But, that was not the case this week.
Many of the games were already decided before the final two minutes in the fourth quarter.
But, there were a few games that gave us the thrilling finishes most fans are looking for.
Here are the two most thrilling finishes from Week 14.
1. Mayfield Has A Hollywood Moment
Sometimes the NFL gives you a script that not even Hollywood would accept.
That is what happened in the final quarter of the Las Vegas Raiders vs. Los Angeles Rams game.
Quarterback Baker Mayfield was signed by the Rams on Tuesday.
Yet, he came into the Thursday night game and was tasked with ending the Rams’ six-game losing streak.
Trailing by six with 1:45 to play in the game, Mayfield took the field needing to go 98 yards to win.

Mayfield knew almost nothing about his teammates or the plays he was running.
But, he still orchestrated a masterful drive to stun the Raiders and win 17-16.
The Rams have no hope of making the playoffs, but this was an incredible moment.
This game might help resurrect Mayfield’s career if he gets another opportunity at starting somewhere next season.
2. Prescott Commands Game-Winning Drive
The Dallas Cowboys entered Sunday as the biggest favorite of any NFL team.
Coming into Sunday as 17-point favorites, Dallas should not have needed a game-winning drive to win.
But, that is exactly what happened.
The Cowboys were down 23-20 with 3:20 seconds to play in the game.
Dak Prescott and the offense took the field, starting at their two-yard line, looking for a touchdown to give them the lead.
After an 11-play drive led by six Prescott’s completions and two runs, Ezekiel Elliott scored the game-winning TD with only 41 seconds left.
Prescott accounted for 96 of the 98 yards on the final drive.
The Cowboys’ 11-play, 98-yard game-winning TD drive today was Dak Prescott’s 18th career game-winning drive, second in franchise history behind Tony Romo (24) and tied for the 7th-most in the NFL since 2016

Despite playing one of their worst games of the season, the Cowboys were able to come through when it mattered most.
Dallas’ defense also deserves plenty of credit for their goal line stand that set up the 98-yard TD drive.
This was a game the Cowboys needed to have, and they did just enough to get the win.
