DE Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: After a quiet week, Clowney reminded everyone he’s still out there with a dominant performance against Jacksonville. He finished second on the team with seven tackles, all of them solo, two sacks, two tackles for loss, FOUR quarterback hits, and a fumble recovery. Whew. Have a day, JD.

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: The Eagles may have lost in somewhat mind-boggling fashion, but Jeffery was the bright spot, finishing second on the team with seven receptions for 88 yards and a touchdown catch. What offseason surgery?

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram was active for Los Angeles in its win against Tennessee, collected five tackles, including a sack and a tackle for loss, as well as two passes broken up and a quarterback hit.

DB D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger was again disruptive for Washington in its win against Dallas, collecting four tackle, half a sack, and recovering a fumble.

DB Johnathan Joseph, Texans: Joseph matched Clowney with seven tackles for Houston, and added a pass defended.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: After Tennessee was shut out last week, Succop helped them get back on the board by making two of his three field goal attempts, missing from 51 yards, as the Titans fell to the Chargers.

CB Stephon Gilmore, Patriots: Gilmore had one tackle and one pass defended for New England in its win against Chicago.

WR Damiere Byrd, Panthers: Byrd had one reception for eight yards and one punt return for nine yards in Carolina’s win against Philadelphia as he returns from injury.

CB Captain Munnerlyn, Panthers: Munnerlyn had a quiet week for Carolina, notching just a tackle.

S Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart was quiet for Denver in its loss to Kansas City, logging one tackle.
