Welcome to Week 14 of the NFL season, which features the fantastic "My Cause, My Cleats" initiative, in which the league loosens its tie a bit and lets players wear custom-designed footwear in support of charities of their choice.
But it's not just the on-field garments with which we're concerned here. We've also got a roundup of the best pregame threads, entrances and more.

Today my cleats support Boston Uncornered, a group that gets young people off the corner and into college. 80% of the youth involved with @collegebounddot do not recidivate and 67% stay in college. We know that neighborhood-based mentors work, now we need to support them. -Dmac pic.twitter.com/c5SxfrfyIV— Devin&Jason McCourty (@McCourtyTwins) December 8, 2019
