Tyus Bowser (BAL) didn’t record a stat in a 44-7 loss to Jacksonville. Tough game for Bowser as he was fooled on a play-action and lost Marcedes Lewis for a TD.
Elandon Roberts (NE) made 9 tackles, 6 solo, in a 36-33 win over the Texans. Roberts has had two very good weeks after the opening loss to KC where he didn’t play much. Dont’a Hightower is close to coming back so it’ll be interesting to see how that will affect Roberts’ playing time.
Case Keenum (MIN) had a career day against a team he owns, Tampa Bay, as he led the Vikings to a 34-17 win Sunday and earned the game ball. Case was 25-33 for a career high 369 yards and 3 TDs while rushing 6 times for 18 yards.
Charles Sims (TB) again saw limited touches in the same game for Tampa as he only carried the ball twice for 4 yards and 1 reception, on 1 target, for 9 yards.
DJ Hayden (DET) had a bit of a rough day in a 30-26 loss to Atlanta. Hayden did record 7 tackles, 4 solo, but missed a tackle late during and was also called for defensive holding earlier in the game.
William Jackson III (CIN) had a bit of a coming out party in the Bengals 27-24 loss to the Packers. Jackson had 4 tackles, 1 pass defensed, and 1 Pick-Six which he returned 75 yards for the TD. Jackson, through 3 games, has earned a score of 83.4 from PFF which puts him among the Top 40 CBs in the league.
