WR/KR Pharoh Cooper, Rams: Cooper’s hard work at kick return finally paid off, as he housed the game’s opening kickoff for a 103-yard touchdown. It’s been difficult for him to crack the receiving rotation in Los Angeles, but he’s still electric with the ball in his hands.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop was a perfect 5-of-5 on field goals, with a long of 48 yards, and also made all three of his extra points. Additionally, Succop is now an NFL record holder with 47 consecutive makes within 50 yards. Not too shabby for Mr. Irrelevant.

CB Johnathan Joseph, Texans: After dealing with injury earlier in the season, Joseph is clearly ready to roll. He pulled down two interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, and added three tackles and a tackle for loss.

DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: Clowney had three tackles and a pass defensed.

WR Bruce Ellington, Texans: Ellington had two catches for 22 yards for Houston as the Browns failed to win yet another football game.

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram had a quiet performance for the other team in Los Angeles, notching three tackles in the Chargers’ dramatic win over Oakland.

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery led Philadelphia with four receptions for 71 yards in the Eagles’ win against the Panthers, though he was kept out of the end zone.

S D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger notched six tackles, was in on half a tackle for loss, and defended a pass as Washington beat San Francisco.

TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook saw a season-low in production for Oakland, catching only two passes for 14 yards.

S Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart had six tackles for Denver in its shocking loss to the previously winless Giants.

TE Jerell Adams, Giants: Adams had one catch for six yards.
