DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: Six tackles with three for loss, two sacks, three quarterback hits, and a fumble recovered for a touchdown. Clowney became the third player in Texans history to return a fumble for a score, joining the illustrious Mario Williams and J.J. Watt. I think it’s safe to say Gamecock fans always wanted to see this happen while he was in a Carolina uniform, and it’s also safe to say JD has put the league on notice.
WR Bruce Ellington, Texans: After a quiet Week 2, Ellington hauled in four catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.
DB Johnathan Joseph, Texans: Joseph saw limited action with just one tackle after suffering a shoulder injury last week.
DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Same production, different week: Ingram logged six tackles with three for loss and three sacks, as well as three quarterback hits, for Los Angeles.
WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery led Philadelphia with 56 yards on four catches. He was kept out of the end zone, but one of his receptions set up the game-winning field goal for Philadelphia.
DB Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart notched seven tackles in the Broncos’ surprising loss to the Bills.
TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook was a bright spot for the Raiders, pulling in four catches for 43 yards and a touchdown in their loss to the Redskins.
K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop was a perfect 4-for-4 on his field goal attempts with a long of 47, and nailed all three of his extra points.
DB Stephon Gilmore, Patriots: Gilmore had four tackles with one for loss and one pass defensed in New England’s comeback victory.
DB D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger had two tackles for Washington in its romp over Oakland, including this beastly hit on Marshawn Lynch:
