Shaq Thompson and Budda Baker put up big numbers on D

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals
The snap count is down for Dante Pettis, but that didn’t stop him from reaching the end zone for San Francisco.

Cardinals: FS Budda Baker had a big game in Arizona’s near-upset of San Francisco, recording season-highs in both passes defensed (3) and tackles for loss (2) while recording 13 total tackles. CB Byron Murphy had a pair of tackles. After playing a handful of offensive snaps each of the past three weeks, TE Darrell Daniels only played on special teams.

49ers: WR Dante Pettis hauled in a 21-yard touchdown pass — and busted out some moves from ‘Thriller’ on Halloween — as San Francisco held off a comeback by Arizona.

Panthers: OLB Shaq Thompson had 11 tackles, including his third sack of the season and a bone-crushing hit of Dion Lewis as Carolina knocked off Tennessee.

Patriots: DT Danny Shelton had a season-high six tackles in New England’s loss at Baltimore.

Ravens: CB Marcus Peters had a season-high eight tackles and defensed a pass in the Ravens’ win over previously-undefeated New England.

Seahawks: LB Ben Burr-Kirven continues to be a special-teams regular for Seattle, as he recorded a career-high two tackles in the overtime win over Tampa Bay.

Buccaneers: DT Vita Vea had three tackles and a QB hit in Tampa Bay’s overtime loss at Seattle. Ahead of his first return to Seattle as a pro, he has entrenched himself as a cornerstone of one of the NFL’s best run defenses.

Packers: CB Kevin King had a pair of tackles in Green Bay’s surprising loss at the Chargers.

Lions: For the first time in five games, WR Marvin Hall did not catch a long pass for Detroit as they fell to Oakland. He did not catch his one target, although he had a 7-yard rush and a 12-yard kick return, which marked just the third rush and second kick return of his career, respectively.

Jaguars: After being cut by Denver on October 2, ILB Keishawn Bierria has been signed to Jacksonville’s practice squad. He had played over 50% of snaps in the first four games for the Broncos before being cut.

Eagles: CB Sidney Jones was a healthy scratch for Philadelphia against Chicago, finding himself buried on the depth chart after falling short of expectations.

Byes: ILB Cory Littleton (Rams), S Taylor Rapp (Rams), DL Greg Gaines (Rams), C Coleman Shelton (Rams), CB Desmond Trufant (Falcons), T Kaleb McGary (Falcons), CB Jordan Miller (Falcons), Drew Sample (Bengals), Dwayne Washington (Saints)
