#ProDawgs Week 6: Kearse busts out of slump

Jermaine Kearse showed flashes of last year's breakout year to help the decimated Jets get a win. Who else made headlines?

Thrust into a bigger role by an injury-riddled Jets’ receiving cast, Jermaine Kearse had easily his best game of the season, catching 9 of 10 targets for 94 yards in New York's win over Indianapolis.

Budda Baker had 9 tackles and was the beneficiary of a Chandler Jones strip-sack, returning a fumble for a touchdown in Arizona’s loss to Minnesota.

Cory Littleton continues to be a force for the Rams on defense. In their win against Denver, he tipped a pass that allowed teammate John Johnson to pick it off.

Marcus Peters improved his play after struggling against the Seahawks.

Shaq Thompson made 4 tackles in Carolina’s loss at Washington. His playing time went down significantly with Thomas Davis back from his PED suspension, playing just 53% of defensive snaps.

Mason Foster recovered a fumble in the Redskins’ win, recording 6 tackles as well.

Vita Vea made his first career tackle in Tampa Bay’s loss to Atlanta. An injury to starter Gerald McCoy figures to get him more playing time.

Desmond Trufant had three tackles and a key pass breakup on 3rd down to prevent a touchdown in the Falcons' win.

Dante Pettis continues to be out with an injury.

Sidney Jones made a tackle before leaving in the 2nd quarter of Philadelphia's win at the Giants with a hamstring injury. He's listed as week-to-week.

Jaydon Mickens fractured his ankle in the Jaguars' blowout loss to Dallas. The Jacksonville return man will miss at least a month.
