The NFL is back! There were a few games that came down to the wire and some come-from-behind victories. Here are your top performers of the week:
Although the Saints lost in heartbreaking fashion, Brees led all statistical categories among quarterback’s for the week. This performance included a 98 yard Touchdown play to his receiver Brandon Cooks. This was the longest play in the NFL since Victor Cruz posted a 99 yard score.
Winston’s sophomore campaign started off phenomenal. He delivered a Buccaneers win, spread the ball around to seven different receivers and showed better rapport with receiver Mike Evans.
Williams picked up right where he left off from last season. The 33-year-old veteran was the lead rusher of the week. Even at the age of 33, still proving he can get the job done when asked upon. He was also second on the team in receptions (6) and targets (9) in the steeler victory.
Ware started for the injured Jamaal Charles. He played a key role in comeback win for the Chiefs. Most of his yards came through the passing game on seven catches.
Green had a monstrous day on Revis Island. He burned him for a 54-yard TD reception, which was the highlight of the afternoon. The Bengals would win late for their 1st victory of the year.
Cooks was incredible Sunday, setting a new career-high in yardage, thanks in part to a 98-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter.
