Ravens: CB Marcus Peters recorded his third pick-six of the season, taking a pass 89 yards to the house as Baltimore routed Cincinnati. That play helped him earn the Defensive Player of the Week honor from NBC Sports’ Peter King.

Bengals: TE Drew Sample hauled in a three-yard pass in Cincinnati’s ugly loss to Baltimore before then leaving with a right ankle injury. Sample has caught six of his seven targets on the season.

Falcons: T Kaleb McGary played the best game of his career so far, almost completely neutralizing star Saints DE Jordan Cameron as Atlanta upset rival New Orleans. Often limited to just special teams, CB Jordan Miller played a significant number of defensive snaps for the first time in his career (7%) and recorded his second tackle of the season.

Saints: With starter Alvin Kamara returning to action, HB Dwayne Washington returned to only playing on special teams and recorded no stats.

Cardinals: FS Budda Baker was all over the field in Arizona’s narrow loss to Tampa Bay, recording 10 tackles, two pass deflections and a fumble recovery. After one of the pass deflections, he pulled this in celebration.

In another big positive for Arizona, CB Byron Murphy hauled in his first career interception (and just Arizona’s third of the season). S Zeke Turner added a tackle on special teams. TE Darrell Daniels played one offensive snap and a chunk on special teams, although he was called for a holding penalty.

Buccaneers: DT Vita Vea had three tackles and his first pass deflection of the year in Tampa Bay’s tight win over Arizona. Vea has been an integral part of the Bucs’ strong D-line that earned a high midseason grade from Pewter Report.

Rams: LB Cory Littleton had his third 14-tackle game of the season while adding a tackle for loss, forced fumble and fumble recovery, but it still wasn’t enough to bail out the struggling Rams offense as they lost to Pittsburgh. S Taylor Rapp had nine tackles including the first two TFL of his career. C Coleman Shelton played a season-high 17% of offensive snaps and recovered a late fumble by Jared Goff. DL Greg Gaines played for the first time since week 6 and had a QB hit.

Dolphins: After being buried on the depth chart for half his rookie season, HB Myles Gaskin was active for the first time. He did not get a carry, but he did haul in a one-yard check-down for his first career touch in Miami’s upset win over the Colts.

Packers: CB Kevin King tied season-highs with nine tackles and two pass deflections as the Packers narrowly held off a rally from Carolina, although one of his pass deflections probably should have been a game-ending interception.

Panthers: OLB Shaq Thompson tied a season-low with four tackles as Carolina lost at Green Bay in the snow.

Lions: WR Marvin Hall played 11 snaps (13%) but recorded no stats as the Lions lost at Chicago.

Injury Report:

  • As mentioned earlier, Bengals TE Drew Sample left early with a right ankle injury. His status for week 11 vs Oakland is unknown.
  • Falcons CB Desmond Trufant missed his fourth game in a row with a toe injury. His status for week 11 vs Carolina is unknown.
