DE Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: Clowney continued his breakout season with another massive performance on Monday night against Baltimore. He racked up two tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss, and two quarterback hits for Houston. Clowney now has a five-game sack streak (with a career-high nine sacks so far) and is fifth on the Texans’ all-time sack list. Not bad for a “bust.”

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery was second on the team with five receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown as Philadelphia continued its strong season with a blowout of the Bears.

Jeffery also got in on some celebration fun, which is something else the Eagles have excelled at this season.

CB Stephon Gilmore, Patriots: Gilmore notched an interception along with one tackle and one pass defensed for New England as it rolled past Miami.

WR Bruce Ellington, Texans: Ellington pulled in three catches for 29 yards for Houston.

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram notched two tackles, including a tackle for loss, and a quarterback hit for Los Angeles as it beat up on Dallas.

S D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger tallied four tackles for Washington in its win against the New York Giants.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop was a perfect 2-for-2 on extra points and made both of his field goal attempts, with a long of 40 yards.

S Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart was third on the team in tackles with six, including a tackle for loss, as Denver edged rival Oakland.

DB Johnathan Joseph, Texans: Joseph notched two tackles and a pass defensed for Houston.

TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook had a rough day for Oakland, coming up with one catch for one yard on five targets.

PR/KR Pharoh Cooper, Rams: Cooper returned four kickoffs for 110 yards with a long of 40, and returned three punts for 59 yards with a long of 40. Cooper notched one catch for nine yards, but also added a fumble in Los Angeles’ win over New Orleans.
