DE Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: Clowney put on a vintage #ClowneyComin performance, racking up four tackles — all of them solo and all of them tackles for loss — which included two sacks and a fumble recovered for a touchdown as Houston nipped Indianapolis. Whew, don’t hurt ‘em, JD.

RB Mike Davis, Seahawks: Davis burst onto the scene for Seattle, racking up 102 yards on 21 carries, 23 yards on four receptions, and tallying two touchdowns as the Seahawks edged Arizona. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Davis, who has been working in relief of injured starter Chris Carson, has earned a spot in the team’s running backs rotation moving forward. We at GABA happen to agree.

TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook had a huge day for Oakland, finishing second on the team with eight receptions for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders’ overtime win against Cleveland.

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Back on the field for the first time this season after rehabbing an injury, Jeffery showed out in a big way, collecting eight receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown (although he did lose a fumble). Welcome back, Alshon.

DB Johnathan Joseph, Texans: Not to be outdone by his teammate and fellow Gamecock, Joseph led the Texans with eight tackles, seven of them solo, and had one pass defensed.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop was 2-for-2 on his field goals, with a long of 42 yards, and perfect on both extra points as Tennessee edged Philadelphia in overtime.

S Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart had three tackles, all of them solo, in the Broncos’ loss to Kansas City.

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram had a quiet day for Los Angeles, logging just one tackle and quarterback hit in the Bolts’ win against San Francisco.

CB Stephon Gilmore, Patriots: Gilmore notched two tackles, one solo, as the Patriots blew out Miami.
