GAMEDAY HEROES

DARIAN STEWART, S, Broncos His end-zone interception in the final minute sealed a victory against the team he played for last year.

DAVID JOHNSON, RB, Cardinals The third-round pick from Northern Iowa sprinted for a 55-yard TD catch to secure a victory over the Saints.

THOMAS DAVIS, LB, Panthers The veteran had seven tackles, including a sack, and also a clinching interception against the Jaguars.

GAMEDAY GOATS

BRIAN HOYER, QB, Texans His first pass with his new team was picked off; he also lost a fumble, was sacked four times and was pulled.

RASHEAN MATHIS, CB, Lions The 35-year-old got beat repeatedly by Keenan Allen as Detroit couldn't protect an 18-point lead.

STEVEN HAUSCHKA, K, Seahawks Not often a kicker gets a goat for a kickoff, but his mis-hit to start overtime gave the Rams a short field.

FANTASY RUSH

GOING UP The guess here is that Marcus Mariota will be a popular pick-up for anyone unsatisfied with their quarterback situation.

GOING DOWN Frank Gore looked like a typical Colts running back in his Indy debut, which is to say he didn't look very good.

LOOKING AHEAD The Saints play host to a Bucs team Drew Brees often eats up; New Orleans has won the past seven meetings.
