This week’s top performers:

  • Paul Posluszny had seven tackles and 1.5 sacks for Jacksonville.
  • NaVorro Bowman had eight tackles and a sack for San Francisco before exiting with a non-contact lower left leg injury that was later diagnosed as an Achilles tear. Bowman will miss the rest of the season.
  • Nathan Stupar led the Saints in tackles with nine and added a fumble recovery that led to the New Orleans comeback win.
  • Sean Lee once again led the Cowboys with 10 tackles.
  • Adrian Amos had seven tackles to tie for the team lead for the Bears.
  • Jesse James had two catches for 15 yards and a touchdown for the Steelers.

Others of note:

  • Jordan Norwood had two catches for 25 yards, and two punt returns for 12 yards for the Broncos.
  • Tamba Hali had three tackles for the Chiefs.
  • DaQuan Jones had three tackles for the Titans.
  • Devon Still had three tackles for the Texans. It’s good to see him back on the stat sheet.
  • Gerald Hodges had two tackles for the 49ers.
  • Jack Crawford had a tackle for Dallas.
  • Chris Hogan was targeted twice, but did not record a reception for the Patriots.

Off the field info:

  • Bowman’s injury is discouraging news for a player that has already missed the 2014 season with a left leg injury sustained in the 2013 playoffs.
  • Carl Nassib had surgery 11 days ago to repair his broken hand.
