Chris Moore, WR, Baltimore Ravens
Moore didn’t do much on offense, playing on only four snaps while recording one rush for two yards and no receptions. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t make an impact. In the beginning of the fourth quarter, Moore returned a blocked punt 14 yards for a touchdown. The score turned out to be the decisive blow in the Ravens 21-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Ricardo Mathews, DE, Pittsburgh Steelers
Mathews played sparingly, seeing action on only five of Pittsburgh’s defensive snaps. He finished with one tackle in a 21-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
John Hughes, DL, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Hughes did his best to help Tampa Bay slow down the Atlanta Falcons but to no avail, as Matt Ryan threw the Falcons to a 43-28 victory. Hughes was on the field for 23 percent of the Browns defensive plays and came in once on special teams.
Parker Ehinger, OL, Kansas City Chiefs
This is more of an update from last week, as Ehinger left last week’s game with a torn ACL that will keep him out for the rest of the season.
Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs
Even with the Chiefs working under a new starting quarterback in Nick Foles, Kelce brought in five passes for 58 yards on seven targets during Kansas City’s 19-14 win over the Jaguars.
Derek Wolfe, DE, Denver Broncos
Wolfe went into the locker room after recording two tackles during Denver’s 30-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders. Wolfe injured his right elbow and has a hairline fracture that will keep him out, although no timetable has been given for his return.
Mike Windt, LS, San Diego Chargers
Windt was in on 11 special teams snaps (32 percent) as the Chargers kicked three field goals and also were forced to punt three times.
Connor Barwin, DE, Philadelphia Eagles
Barwin started and played in 69 percent of the defensive snaps for the Eagles, who lost to the divisional rival New York Giants 28-23. Barwin had two tackles in the losing effort, as the Eagles recorded only one sack.
Brent Celek, TE, Philadelphia Eagles
Celek was on the field for more than a quarter of Philadelphia’s offensive plays (28 percent) but he did not record a reception. He also played on 13 special teams plays.
Johnny Holton, WR, Oakland Raiders
Holton played a total of 10 snaps in Oakland’s 30-20 win over Denver. Despite only three of those coming on offense and the fact that he had no receptions, Holton was part of a critical moment in the game. In the fourth quarter, he was targeted once on a deep ball from Derek Carr and invoked a pass interference call that moved the Raiders up 31 yards to the Broncos’ five-yard line. Latavius Murray would punch in a touchdown four plays later.
