The Bucs really put up 55 on the Los Angeles Rams. Who predicted that? Winston had a great outing throwing for 385 yards and 4 touchdowns:

It took until week 4, but Winston found one of his favorite targets, Cameron Brate, for the first time this year:

Plus, a perfect deep ball to Mike Evans:

Winston did have a pick-six late in the game, on a poor throw, but overall he was lights out.
Bradham’s Eagles had fits stopping Aaron Rodgers and top receiver Davante Adams all night long, but on the last play of the game in was Bradham who sealed the win for Philly.
Packers fans look away now.

Bradham finished the night with 6 tackles (4 solo), two passes defended, and the interception.
With injuries along the defensive line Josh Sweat has seen plenty of playing time this year, flashing the ability he showed at Florida State.
Here he muscled his way into the backfield and drove Green Bay running back Aaron Jones back 10 yards:

Nnadi had a a career day, with a team-high 8 tackles (5 solo) and his first career sack.
All glory to God https://t.co/CxyLz1fqun— Derrick Nnadi (@DerrickNnadi) September 29, 2019
Technically it was a strip sack, coming as the Lions were on the verge of a score:

Erving has filled in at left tackle after the Chiefs lost Pro Bowler Eric Fisher.
Erving had a nice block on LeSean McCoy’s lone touchdown on the day:
Great read by McCoy here. Also great block by Cam Erving and Kelce pushing just enough to Shady squeeze through for the TD. pic.twitter.com/nocq8cLumT— RawTalkSports (@RawTalkSports1) September 23, 2019
Burns had Panthers fans holding their collective breathe as the first round pick temporarily left the game with a wrist injury:

Burns returned to the game and continued to make plays in all phases:

Burns contributed half a sack today, as well as 3 qb hits and 2 tackles.
Following the game, the rookie edge rusher said this is just the beginning of the Panther dominant pass rush:

“Honestly, y’all ain’t seen nothin yet.”
Elliot got credit for the other half a sack as him and Burns got to quarterback Deshaun Watson:

He finished the game with 3 tackles (1 solo), a QB hit, and half a sack.
Joyner had 7 solo tackles, a pass defended and two tackles for a loss, including this truck of Colts running back Marlon Mack:

After requesting a trade away from Jacksonville, Ramsey hasn’t practiced this week and left the team midweek to be in Tennessee for the birth of his daughter (congrats, Jalen!):
Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said in a statement on Wednesday night that Jalen Ramsey has left the team because he’s expecting the birth of his second child.— ESPN (@espn) September 25, 2019

Ramsey did travel with the team to Denver and was present on the sideline, but didn’t dress and was listed as inactive:

As the saga continues, it seems the Eagles will be making a heavy push for the services of the Pro Bowl corner, and if you watched their secondary on Thursday night, you’ll know why:
The Eagles will "spend the next few days trying to pry Jalen Ramsey from the Jags" https://t.co/bawPC6SE1w— BleedingGreenNation (@BleedingGreen) September 29, 2019
His team is 0-4, but Walker has had a nice start to his season and got himself a sack on Sunday afternoon:
