Brenden Jaimes, Los Angeles Chargers

When starting center Will Clapp went down with an injury that meant that Jaimes saw his first real significant action of his NFL career. Jaimes played well in relief and will get a chance next week as the starting center.

Ameer Abdullah, Las Vegas Raiders

In their wild blowout win over the Chargers we got to see Ameer get extended playing time and snaps. Abdullah finished with 6 carries for 32 yards while adding 2 catches for 12 yards.

Lavonte David, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Every Husker fan knew how good Lavonte David was in college, but he’s been equally as impressive in the NFL. Against the Packers David was all over the place. David’s 9 tackles was second most while he threw in a half sack, two tackles for loss and a pass defended.

Trey Palmer, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It was a quiet day for Palmer as he was only targeted twice in their win over the Packers, hauling in one catch for just five years.

Luke Gifford, Tennessee Titans

Playing on special teams, Gifford recorded one tackle but it was a huge one. Gifford’s tackle on a punt saved a touchdown and allowed the game to go to overtime.

JoJo Domann, Tennessee Titans

An injury during the preseason, ended Domann’s stint with the Colts who put him on injured reserve and then released him. Now healthy, Domann is looking to pick up where he left off with the Titans. In his first action of the season Domann was able to make a tackle on special teams.

Maliek Collins, Houston Texans

Collins continued his strong play in their win over division rival Titans. Finishing with 5 tackles, Collins had a sack and a half while finishing with two quarterback hurries. But Collins was most impressive play was blowing up a double team and bringing down Derrick Henry for a tackle for loss.

Khalil Davis, Houston Texans

It was a Husker sack party for the Texans on Sunday. Davis got into the action running over former Northwestern lineman Peter Skoronski en route to the sack. Davis added another tackle for loss while finishing with four total tackles.

Randy Gregory, San Francisco 49ers

Injuries and a big lead led to Gregory seeing 53% of the 49ers defensive snaps, however that didn’t mean he had a big game. Instead Gregory had just one tackle.
