DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: Clowney had four tackles with a tackle for loss, but the most exciting part of his day was a fumble recovery and subsequent 50-yard scamper. He palmed that ball like it was a toy and ran with a child’s triumphant, joyful abandon.

DB Johnathan Joseph, Texans: Joseph made four tackles, but departed the game with a shoulder injury and his current status is unknown.

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram continued to get after it for Los Angeles, this week compiling four tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss, and adding a quarterback hit for good measure.

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery notched his first touchdown with Philadelphia and enjoyed a productive afternoon, hauling in seven catches for 92 yards.

DB Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart had three tackles and a tackle for loss in Denver’s dominant win against the Cowboys.

TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook finished with four receptions for 25 yards for Oakland.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop was a perfect 3-for-3 on his field goal attempts, his longest a 41-yarder.

TE Jerell Adams, Giants: Adams was only targeted once, but made the most of it with a 38-yard catch for New York.

DB Stephon Gilmore, Patriots: Gilmore had a quiet day with just a couple tackles for New England.

DB D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger finished with five tackles for Washington in its win against the Rams.

WR/KR Pharoh Cooper, Rams: Cooper was absent from the receiving game, but returned three kicks for 59 yards with a long of 34 yards.
