‘Noles in the NFL: week 14

Eddie Goldman made sure Sean McVay knew his name when he left Soldier Field Sunday night.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Chicago Bears Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Falcons (34-20 loss to Green Bay)

Devonta Freeman: (Injured Reserve)

Carolina Panthers (26-20 loss to Cleveland)

K Graham Gano: was ruled out of Sunday’s game with a knee injury. Gano’s injury designation was a surprise, but the injury itself isn’t considered to be serious.

Chicago Bears (15-6 win over Los Angeles Rams)

NT Eddie Goldman: recorded just one solo tackle on the evening, but boy was it a big one, as his sack of QB Jared Goff went for a safety:

Cincinnati Bengals (26-21 loss to Los Angeles Chargers)

WR Auden Tate: was active, but didn’t record any stats on the day.

OT Bobby Hart: had a rough day against defensive end Joey Bosa, giving up a sack and two QB hits.

WR Kermit Whitfield (practice squad)

Denver Broncos (20-14 loss to San Francisco)

DE Demarcus Walker: (inactive)

S Trey Marshall (practice squad)

Detroit Lions (17-3 win over Arizona)

LB Christian Jones: recorded three solo tackles and a pass defended.

Houston Texans

OT Roderick Johnson (practice squad)

Jacksonville Jaguars (30-9 loss to Tennessee)

LB Telvin Smith: It was a horrible night for the Jacksonville defense. They gave up 264 yards on the ground, 238 of which was to RB Derrick Henry. Henry also found the end zone four times, one of which saw him bulldoze defenders on a 99-yard effort. With plenty of opportunity, Smith recorded 10 tackles (five solo) on the evening.

CB Jalen Ramsey: The night wasn’t any better for the outside corner. Ramsey recorded five solo tackles and a TFL.

He also went viral after he flopped while getting into it with Tennessee offensive linemen Taylor Lewan:

WR Rashad Greene: recorded one catch for 10 yards. He also returned two kicks for 43 yards.

Kansas City Chiefs (27-24 win over Baltimore)

OT Cam Erving: left the game with a knee injury and would not return. There is no update on his injury, but with a short week and the red-hot Chargers ahead of them on Thursday, the Chiefs will hope it isn’t too serious.

DT Derrick Nnadi: recorded five tackles (three solo).

WR Kelvin Benjamin: After being released by the Bills earlier in the Week, Benjamin went unclaimed on waivers. He did, however, visit the Chiefs and ended up signing with them.

Of all the destination’s in the league, Benjamin could not have landed in a better spot. Kansas City’s explosive offense led by Patrick Mahomes could provide plenty of opportunity for Benjamin to reverse his current career trajectory. That is, if Benjamin is willing to put in the work.

LB Terrance Smith: (Injured Reserve)

Los Angeles Chargers (26-21 win over Cincinnati)

S Derwin James: A tame day by his standards, James recorded seven tackles (six solo). But even when his stat line doesn’t jump out at you, the rookie is still making plays:

Los Angeles Rams (15-6 loss to Chicago)

S Lamarcus Joyner: It’s never good when your safety leads the team in tackles, but that’s exactly what Joyner did in a low scoring affair against the Bears. He would finish the game with seven solo tackles.

Minnesota Vikings

CB Xavier Rhodes: (plays Monday night)

RB Dalvin Cook: (plays Monday night)

Miami Dolphins (34-33 win over New England)

TE Nick O’Leary: played but didn’t record any stats.

New England Patriots(34-33 loss to Miami)

TE Ryan Izzo: (Injured Reserve)

New Orleans Saints (28-14 win over Tampa Bay)

CB P.J. Williams: recorded two solo tackles and a pass defended.

CB Patrick Robinson: (Injured Reserve)

OT Rick Leonard (practice squad)

New York Giants (40-16 win over Washington)

DE Mario Edwards Jr: played, but didn’t record any stats.

New York Jets (27-23 win over Buffalo)

S Terrance Brooks: recovered a fumble in his team’s victory.

Oakland Raiders (24-21 win over Pittsburgh)

C Rodney Hudson: continues to play at a high level and should be playing in the Pro Bowl come January.

Philadelphia Eagles (29-23 loss to Dallas)

LB Nigel Bradham: had a monster game, leading the team in tackles with 14 (seven solo).

DE Josh Sweat: left the game with an ankle injury before recording any stats.

DT Timmy Jernigan: (Inactive)

DB Ronald Darby: (Injured Reserve)

Pittsburgh Steelers (24-21 loss to Oakland)

LB Vince Williams: recorded one solo tackle.

San Francisco 49ers (20-14 win over Denver)

LB Dekoda Watson (Injured Reserve)

Tavarus McFadden: (practice squad)

Seattle Seahawks

K Sebastian Janikowski: (plays Monday night)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (28-14 loss to New Orleans)

QB Jameis Winston: It was a tale of two halves for Tampa Bay’s offense. Heading into halftime the Bucs held a 14-3 lead over the Saints, but they would be unable to score again. Winston managed a decent day despite poor offensive line play, going 18/38 for 213 yards and two touchdowns and an interception. Winston also added 47 yards on the ground.

DB Javien Elliot: Last week Elliot put in the best performance of his career. This week he was only able to contribute two solo tackles as the Buccaneers faltered late despite a fast start against Drew Brees and the saints. Despite the loss, the defense performed well, and limited New Orleans’ play makers.

Earlier in the week Elliot spoke about his career day against the panthers among other things.

LS Garrison Sanborn: handled long snapping duties.

WR Bobo Wilson: recorded one catch for eight yards and handled kick off returns, taking back two for 44 total yards.

Washington Redskins (40-16 loss to New York Giants)

RB Chris Thompson: carried the ball three times for 23 yards and hauled in three passes for an additional 15 yards.

K Dustin Hopkins: was not called upon for any field goals or extra points on the day.
