WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery had only three catches for 29 yards, but made them count by pulling in Philadelphia’s only receiving touchdown in its win against the Chargers. Alshon + the red zone = points.
DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: Clowney had two tackles, including one for loss and a strip sack, as well as a quarterback hit in Houston’s incredible 57-14 win against Tennessee. Just Clowney doing more Clowney things.

WR Bruce Ellington, Texans: Ellington had three catches for 44 yards and one carry for 13 as he joined in the fun for Houston.
DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram notched four tackles, including one for loss and a quarterback hit, for winless Los Angeles. Ingram was also named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Month earlier in the week.
DB Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart led Denver with seven tackles in the Broncos’ win against the Raiders.
TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook hauled in three catches for 46 yards for slumping Oakland, which is now without its starting quarterback.
K Ryan Succop, Titans: Tough day at the office for Tennessee and Succop, who did not get the chance to attempt a field goal but made both of his extra points. Succop was earlier named the AFC’s Special Teams Player of the Month.
DB Stephon Gilmore, Patriots: Gilmore had four tackles and a couple of ill-timed penalties for the Patriots in their narrow loss to Carolina.
WR Damiere Byrd, Panthers: Byrd had one catch for 12 yards before taking a helmet to his forearm and leaving the game. Byrd is now on injured reserve with a broken arm, which is a really tough blow for him.
DB D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger logged five tackles, including one for loss and a sack, as well as quarterback hit in Washington’s loss to the undefeated Chiefs.
WR/KR Pharoh Cooper, Rams: Cooper continues to make his living on special teams, returning four kicks for 123 yards with a long of 66.
