GAMEDAY HEROES

Dede Westbrook, WR, Jaguars Listed as questionable because of a shoulder injury, he not only played but finished with six catches for 103 yards, his second career 100-yard game.

Dante Fowler, DE, Rams Perhaps energized by teaming again with Jalen Ramsey, the ex-Jaguar had a seven tackles, including three sacks; both figures are career highs.

Kwon Alexander, LB, 49ers

With his team nursing a 3-0 lead and Washington driving, Alexander forced an Adrian Peterson fumble that was recovered by Jullian Taylor.

GAMEDAY GOATS

Pat Shurmur, coach, Giants The heat is on the former Vikings offensive coordinator after he called for a Saquon Barkley draw on third-and-18 with New York down three late.

Melvin Gordon, RB, Chargers So much weirdness in the final minutes in Nashville, but the play-by-play says he got stuffed once at the goal line, then fumbled on the second try.

Christian Wilkins, DT, Dolphins The first-round pick — who has no sacks, tackles for loss or QB hits in his first five starts — was ejected after two plays at Buffalo for punching Cody Ford.

FANTASY RUSH

Going up Josh Jacobs came back from bye and looked much like he did before the bye, and you could do much worse at running back than the rookie from Alabama.

Going down It appears Will Fuller has fallen back to earth, as he has had a total of six receptions for 50 yards in the two games since his 14-catch, 217-yard, three-TD monster.

Looking ahead The Sunday night matchup between the Packers and Chiefs would look a lot more appealing if Patrick Mahomes magically recovers in time to play.
