Ravens: In his first game with the Ravens after being traded from the Rams in exchange for LB Kenny Young and a 2020 fifth-round pick, CB Marcus Peters became the first player in NFL history to record a pick-six with two different teams in the same season, taking Russell Wilson’s first interception of the year to the house to help Baltimore get a huge win in Seattle.

Rams: LB Cory Littleton had a season-low three tackles but made a pair of big plays with an interception and a third-down sack of Matt Ryan as LA snapped a two-game losing streak with a blowout win over Atlanta. S Taylor Rapp added six tackles. C Coleman Shelton was active for just the second time in his career, including playing the first four offensive snaps of his career in garbage time. DL Greg Gaines did not play after earning the first five tackles of his career over the prior two weeks.

Lions: WR Marvin Hall has suddenly emerged as a big-play threat for Detroit, catching a 58-yard pass on his only target in Detroit’s MNF loss at Green Bay last week (against fellow Husky Kevin King), then catching one of two targets for a 47-yard gain. His 152 yards through four games with the Lions are a new career-high, surpassing the 149 in a full season with Atlanta last year.

Packers: CB Kevin King continued his breakout as a third-year pro, picking off Derek Carr in the end zone for his third interception of the season as Green Bay easily beat Oakland. He had four tackles in that game, as well as four plus a pass defensed in MNF the week prior vs Detroit.

Cardinals: FS Budda Baker made eight tackles and defensed his first pass of the season as surprising Arizona moved up to .500 on the season with a win at the Giants. CB Byron Murphy had five tackles, while TE Darrell Daniels played a season-high 12% of snaps but recorded no stats.

Saints: RB Dwayne Washington played on offense for the first time this season and caught a screen pass for a 6-yard gain in New Orleans’ win at Chicago. Washington has played regularly on special teams, but had a minor role offensively with Alvin Kamara out.

Falcons: T Kaleb McGary played every offensive snap for the fifth game in a row and had a fumble recovery in Atlanta’s loss to the Rams. CB Jordan Miller played a career-high 47% of special teams snaps and made his first career tackle.

49ers: WR Dante Pettis played a season-high 92% of offensive snaps but did not catch either of his two targets in San Francisco’s low-scoring win over Washington.

Eagles: CB Sidney Jones was healthy but did not play in Philadelphia’s blowout loss to Dallas. His struggles have earned the ire of head coach Doug Pederson and buried him on the depth chart.

Bengals: TE Drew Sample caught a pass for three yards, his second week in a row with a catch, as Cincinnati lost to Jacksonville.

Injury Report

  • As expected, TE Will Dissly’s season has ended early for the second year in a row, having left Seattle’s win at Cleveland with an Achilles injury in week 6. He underwent surgery during week 7 and will miss the rest of the season.
  • Falcons CB Desmond Trufant missed his second game in a row against the Rams with a toe injury and is questionable for week 8 vs Seattle.
  • Cardinals S Zeke Turner missed his third game in a row with hand and hamstring injuries and is doubtful for week 8 vs New Orleans.
