KWON ALEXANDER, LB, Buccaneers The rookie nearly beat the Falcons by himself, with an interception, a fumble recovery and 11 tackles.

DREW BREES, QB, Saints Threw for career highs in yards (511) and TDs (seven) in shootout with Giants.

TODD GURLEY, RB, Rams Rushed 20 times for 133 yards in victory over 49ers, his fourth consecutive start over 100 yards to start his NFL career.


BEN ROETHLISBERGER, QB, Steelers Tough welcome back for Big Ben after a sprained knee: three INTs, two coming late vs. Bengals.

BRAD WING, P, Giants Two sins on his last punt at New Orleans: It was returnable and he got called for a facemask to set up the final field goal.

STEVE WILLIAMS, CB, Chargers His pass interference penalty against Kamar Aiken on third-and-19 enabled the Ravens to win the game.


GOING UP He's listed as third-string on the Titans depth chart, but Antonio Andrews is a No. 1 RB and at least a viable option if you're needy.

GOING DOWN While Melvin Gordon had 23 touches Sunday, Danny Woodhead had only five; is it the beginning of the end for him?

LOOKING AHEAD The last time Dez Bryant faced the Eagles, he caught three TDs, but that was with Tony Romo, not Matt Cassel.
