Maliek Collins, Houston Texans
Collins may not have had a gaudy stat line finishing with just three tackles with one being a loss and a pass defended. However Collins’ TFL came on 3rd and 1 and ended the Colts drive while later his batted down pass forced a long field goal that the Colts ended up missing.
Khalil Davis, Houston Texans
It’s been a strong season for Davis who has found success with the Texans. It a crucial game to get into the playoffs, Davis found a way to contribute once again with two tackles with one being a huge tackle for loss in the third quarter.
Lavonte David, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Nothing flashy for David in their win over the Panthers. Instead he just racked up a team high 9 tackles and helped the Bucs shut out the Panthers offense.
#Bucs ILB Lavonte David ended the regular season with 133 tackles.— Matt Matera (@matty4_matera) January 8, 2024
That's the 5th highest of his career and but the most since 2015. This includes him missing 2 games this season!
It's truly fascinating to see how well he continues to play in his 12th year.
Trey Palmer, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Sunday was not Palmer’s best day as a Pro. Trey was only able to reel in two of his six targets with a couple of drops. To make matters worse he also fumbled the ball but luckily his teammate recovered it. Let’s hope that Palmer has a much better showing next week in the first round of the playoffs.
Cam Taylor-Britt, Cincinnati Bengals
It was a quiet day for Taylor-Britt in their victory over division rival Cleveland. Cam finished with just two tackles but helped the Bengals defense hold Jeff Driskell and the Browns to just 166 passing yards.
Stanley Morgan, Cincinnati Bengals
After spending most of the season on the practice squad, Morgan was activated for the final game of the season. Morgan only played on special teams and was unable to make any tackles.
JoJo Domann, Tennessee Titans
Domann only played 14 snaps on special teams but was able to make a tackle on a 1st quarter kick off.
Travis Vokolek, Arizona Cardinals
In his second game of action with the Cardinals Vokolek was used once again primarily as a blocker and even some as a fullback.
Ben Stille, Arizona Cardinals
Before Sunday’s game, Stille was signed to the Cardinals active roster and ended up playing 42% of the defensive snaps. However he was unable to make any tackles.
Brenden Jaimes, Los Angeles Chargers
In his second straight start, Jaimes had a solid showing against the Chiefs. While he didn’t dominate he also was able to hold his own. Jaimes’ play these past two games have shown that Jaimes belongs in the league and could earn him some more playing time.
Ameer Abdullah, Las Vegas Raiders
It was a quiet day for Abdullah who only saw the ball once on 18 snaps making a single catch for seven yards.
Jack Stoll, Philadelphia Eagles
With a playoff spot wrapped up and getting beat by the Giants, we ended up seeing a lot of Jack Stoll who not only played 58% of the Eagles’ snaps but also caught an 11 yard pass in the third quarter.
Cam Jurgens, Philadelphia Eagles
It was quite the day for Jurgens who slid over to center to replace Kelce who got hurt and then Jurgens ended up getting poked in the eye and had to leave. Hopefully Jurgens is alright and able to go next week during the playoffs.
Randy Gregory, San Francisco 49ers
With the 49ers resting several players that meant that we got to see more Gregory out there. However Gregory wasn’t able to capitalize on the increased playing time and and finished with just two tackles.
Ochaun Mathis, Los Angeles Rams
Mathis only played four special teams snaps without making a tackle.
Brett Maher, Los Angeles Rams
Maher was resigned to the Rams this week going 1-2 on PATs in the Rams win over the 49ers.
Nick Gates, Washington Commanders
Starting for the second straight week Gates had an up and down game for the Commanders in their loss to the Cowboys.
