The 3-star defensive lineman from Montana moved to the next level in style.

Will Dissly caught 3 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in his NFL debut with the Seahawks, including a sparkling 66-yard catch and run.

After a frustrating rookie season plagued by injury, Bengals receiver John Ross caught his first career touchdown.

Dante Pettis had a mostly positive debut with the 49ers, muffing a punt early, but also chipping in a 14-yard return later, and catching 2 passes for 61 yards and his first career touchdown.

Budda Baker racked up 11 tackles for the Cardinals, lining up mostly as a safety but fairly close to the line of scrimmage. He may see time for Arizona at nickel as well.

Shaq Thompson was a major factor in the Panthers’ win over the Cowboys, making 9 tackles (5 solo), a TFL, and a sack, including earning recognition from one writer.

Danny Shelton made 4 tackles in his Patriots debut after being traded from Cleveland.

Keishawn Bierria played on special teams for the Broncos, getting called for a hold that negated a 23-yard punt return.

Sidney Jones played in the Eagles’ nickel and dime packages, making a tackle behind the line.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins made 3 catches for 25 yards for the Jaguars. Teammate Jaydon Mickens played but did not record any stats.

Kevin King made a couple of tackles in the Packers dramatic rally against the Bears, although Allen Robinson would have beaten him for a TD in the first quarter if not for a poor throw by Mitchell Trubisky.

Mason Foster made 5 tackles (3 solo) in the Redskins’ impressive beating of Arizona. Earlier Sunday, he was announced as one of the captains for Washington.

Desmond Trufant made 6 tackles in NFL season-opening showcase against the Eagles on Thursday.

Vita Vea was inactive for the Buccaneers. He hasn’t played in over a month due a strained calf. The injury was originally thought to be something that would only keep him out a couple of weeks, but recovery has been slow, writes ESPN’s Jenna Laine.

The Rams, Raiders, Lions, and Jets play tonight on MNF. Jermaine Kearse will play for New York, while Marcus Peters and Cory Littleton are both expected to start for the Rams, as Littleton has taken over defensive play-calling duties.
