  • Keenan Allen caught three of his four targets for just 40 yards in a 26-11 win over the Packers.

  • After struggling last week, Marvin Jones Jr. had another big game, catching eight of ten targets for 126 yards and a touchdown while unfortunately being on the losing side of the Raiders-Lions game.
  • Mitchell Schwarz and the Chiefs offense continued to produce despite not having Patrick Mahomes, putting up 26 points (377 total yards, 1 turnover) but struggled in pass protection (5 sacks) in a win over the Vikings.
  • In a game where the Packers’ offense struggled as a whole, Aaron Rodgers completed 23/35 passes for just 161 yards and a touchdown. The Packers would lose to the Chargers by a score of 26-11.


  • Lorenzo Alexander replicated his exact stat-line from Week 8 with two tackles and a pass deflection in a 24-9 win over the Redskins.
  • Tyson Alualu had one tackle in the Steelers’ 26-24 win over the Colts.
  • Mychal Kendricks was a big part in the Seahawks’ dramatic overtime win over the Buccaneers, as he had four tackles, but one was a sack and two were tackles for loss. He also added a pass deflection to the stat-sheet stuffing performance.
