Dalvin Cook is a machine.

Dalvin Cook

Entering Sunday night’s game as the league’s leading rusher, Cook continued his dominant performance by posting 183 yards from scrimmage.

Cook carried the ball 26 times for 97 yards and a touchdown. He was over 100-yards on the night before a disastrous final drive trying to run out the clock at the end of the game knocked him under the century mark.

He also added 86 yards on 7 receptions.

He also took time after the game to hang out with a fan:

Jameis Winston

The Buccaneers were back at home for the first time since week 3 (great scheduling) and it was an up and down day for Jameis Winston. He threw an early interception, but would rebounded, throwing for 358 yards and a touchdown:

He also threw another interception that was popped up after he stared down a receiver, but ultimately the Buccaneers came away with an ugly win.

As a bonus, this is both impressive and maybe the most Jameis Winston stat of all-time:

The definition of a gunslinger.

Lamarcus Joyner

Joyner played a large part in Oakland’s impressive defensive performance on Thursday night. The hard-hitting defensive back recorded 7 tackles (3 solo) in his team’s win. Unfortunately, Joyner was injured late in the game as he appeared to pull up lame with a non-contact hamstring injury. More will come out this week about what Joyner’s availability will be moving forward, but Jon Gruden described the injury as worrisome following the game:

Derwin James

Despite losing, Chargers fans did have one thing to cheer about this week in the form of Pro Bowler Derwin James possibly returning after the team’s bye week:

P.J. Williams

Williams would start the game against the Falcons, taking back his role as the team’s starting nickel corner—although, he would have to move outside after an injury to Marshon Lattimore.

All in all, Williams and he Saints defense did well to contain Julio Jones and the rest of Atlanta’s talented receiving corps. Williams had 5 tackles (3 solo) and a pass defended, but the Saints just couldn’t get anything going on offense.

Devonta Freeman

Freeman had a few nice runs in the game, but overall his stat line left something to be desired with 10 carries for 38 yards and 3 catches for 10 more. His team got a huge upset win over New Orleans, but unfortunately for Freeman, he left the game with a foot injury and wouldn’t return:

Jalen Ramsey

A lot was made throughout the week about Jalen Ramsey matching up with Juju Smith-Schuster following Ramsey’s comments saying that while Schuster is a physical receiver, he wasn’t particularly worried about covering him:

Schuster didn’t take the comments personally and his Steelers would wind up coming away with a 17-12 victory:

Ramsey and the Los Angeles defense played well and limited Pittsburgh’s offense throughout the game. Problem is, their own offense was also shut down.

Other Notable Statlines

Christian Jones, Detroit Lions: An anomaly for Jones this season, he only recorded one tackle in his team’s loss to the Bears.

Eddie Goldman, Chicago Bears: After being listed as questionable all week with a thigh injury Goldman was able to play on Sunday and recorded 2 tackles (1 solo).

Auden Tate, Cincinnati Bengals: With just 3 catches for 36 yards, it was a day to forget for Tate in Cincinnati’s blowout loss.

Derrick Nnadi, Kansas City Chiefs: Recorded a solo tackle,

Brian Burns, Carolina Panthers: After a fast start to the year, Burns hasn’t looked quite the same since having surgery on his wrist during the team’s bye week. The first year edge rusher had one tackle in a frigid game at Lambeau Field.

Javien Elliot, Carolina Panthers: 4 tackles (3 solo).

Vince Williams, Pittsburgh Steelers: Notched 3 tackles (1 solo) and a QB hit.

Xavier Rhodes: Finished the game with 4 tackles (3 solo).
