Rams: CB Marcus Peters made his second interception of the year and also had four tackles in LA’s home loss to San Francisco, after already being PFF’s #7 cornerback through five weeks. LB Cory Littleton had a team-high 14 tackles and also recovered a fumble, which he lateraled to a teammate on a risky but successful play. S Taylor Rapp returned from an injury that had held him out during week 5 in Seattle, making six tackles. DL Greg Gaines had a career-high four tackles, playing over one-third of the defensive snaps for the first time in his short career (36%).
49ers: WR Dante Pettis caught one pass for 11 yards in San Francisco’s MNF romp over Cleveland last Monday, then had 3 receptions for 45 yards as San Francisco won their fifth straight, this time at the Rams. He played on 72% of the offensive snaps vs LA, a season-high.
Seahawks: TE Will Dissly’s fantastic season appears to have come to a screeching halt, as he left Seattle’s tight win at Cleveland with an Achilles injury and it is believed to be a season-ending injury. Whenever he’s been on the field, Dissly has been spectacular in just 10 games through two seasons in Seattle, but likely will have played less than one-third of the possible games if he does not play again this season after playing just four last year.
Buccaneers: DT Vita Vea had his first career sack (officially, a half-sack) among four tackles as Tampa Bay lost at home to Carolina.
Panthers: LB Shaq Thompson had four tackles as Carolina won at Tampa Bay.
Cardinals: FS Budda Baker tied for a team-high with eight tackles as Arizona held off a comeback from Atlanta. CB Byron Murphy recorded his first career tackle for loss among six total, while also deflecting a pass for the third week in a row.
Patriots: DT Danny Shelton had three tackles as New England rolled to an easy win over the Giants.
Eagles: CB Sidney Jones had two tackles but was a major liability as Kirk Cousins picked apart the Philly secondary for 333 yards and four touchdowns, leaving the Eagles wondering where to go from here.
