Picked up his first two scores of the season

Taysom Hill, QB/TE, NO

22 passing yards, 1 passing TD, 112 rushing yards, 3 TDs, 34 points.

He was the Saints’ Swiss Army knife, routinely coming up with big plays in key situations.

Dallas Cowboys DEF

10 points allowed, 5 sacks, 1 INT, 2 fumbles recovered, 1 blocked kick, 1 TD, 23 points.

Even with Micah Parsons ailing, the Cowboys defence applied the pressure on the Rams.

Nick Folk, K, NE

5 FGs, 179 FG yards, 2 PATs, 19.9 points.


Jared Goff, QB, DET

229 passing yards, 1 INT, 7 rushing yards, 1 fumble lost, 6.8 points.

Couldn’t do much against a Pats defence prepared to take away the short stuff.

Najee Harris, RB, PIT

20 rushing yards, 16 receiving yards, 5.1 points.

It’s starting to look like this season is going to be a struggle for the sophomore.

Chase Edmonds, RB, MIA

1 rushing yard, 0.1 points.

Didn’t catch either of his two targets and was out-touched 19-1 by Raheem Mostert.

A.J. Brown, WR, PHI

32 receiving yards, 4.7 points.

After catching three balls on the opening drive, Brown didn’t have a reception for the rest of the game.

Christian Kirk, WR, JAC

11 receiving yards, 1.6 points.

With one catch against the Texans, he now has a total of three over the past two games.

Jaylen Waddle, WR, MIA

23 receiving yards, 3.8 points.

A second straight rough outing for the sophomore. Looks like he might need Tua to really shine.


With Jahan Dotson out, it was Dyami Brown who took over the rookie WR’s role and put up quite similar numbers. The Washington backup had two catches which both went for TDs and a total of 105 yards. That was good for an excellent 23.5 points this week.

Tevin Coleman joined the 49ers practice squad a couple of weeks ago but has now become Jeff Wilson Jr.’s backup. He got some decent work in the blowout win, racking up 67 total yards and two TDs for a smooth 20.2 points.
