DE Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: After a quiet performance last week, Clowney racked up six tackles, including two tackles for loss, and four quarterback hits in Houston’s loss to San Francisco.

RB Mike Davis, Seahawks: For the second week in a row, Davis led Seattle’s ground game with 15 carries for 66 yards.

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram compiled five tackles, including one for loss, and added half a sack with two quarterback hits for Los Angeles in its win against the Redskins.

S D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger had three tackles and one pass defensed for Washington.

WR Damiere Byrd, Panthers: In his second game back after recovering from an arm fracture, Byrd was second on the team in receiving with five catches for 37 yards.

DB Captain Munnerlyn, Panthers: Munnerlyn tallied two tackles and a pass defensed for Carolina in its win against Minnesota, his former team.

CB Stephon Gilmore, Patriots: Gilmore logged three tackles for New England in its surprising loss to Miami.

S Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart had a tackle and a pass defensed as Denver blanked the New York Jets.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop missed his long field goal attempt but nailed a point after.
