Well, the Panthers got killed, but a former Auburn Tiger is blossoming into one of the best pass rushers in the NFL. Enjoy!
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8th
PITTSBURGH 52, CAROLINA 21
Panthers - Cam Newton (QB) got terrorized by the Steeler pass rush all night long, but still went 23-29 for 193 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 INT (unfortunately a pick six). He was sacked five times for -46 yards, and ran twice for 10 yards in the loss.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11th
TENNESSEE 34, NEW ENGLAND 10
Patriots - Jonathan Jones (CB) and Brandon King (LB) each finished with one tackle in New England’s loss in Nashville.
Titans - Daren Bates (DB) notched two tackles for Tennessee in the win.
KANSAS CITY 26, ARIZONA 14
Chiefs - Dee Ford (LB) has had himself a fantastic season, and it only got better on Sunday as KC beat the Cardinals. For recorded six tackles, three TFLs, a sack, and four quarterback hits as he rocked Josh Rosen’s world.
Physical mismatch of the week: Andre Smith simply didn’t have the wherewithal to handle Dee Ford’s speed rush — and everyone on the field knew it. Ford just winning down after down, wreaking havoc on Rosen.— Chris Wesseling (@ChrisWesseling) November 12, 2018

And even our friends across the pond are getting recognized again since Ford has been such a monster this year.
Cardinals - Josh Bynes (LB) had his effort overshadowed by Ford’s day, but he had a solid outing as well with three tackles, one TFL, a sack, and a pass deflection in the loss.
INDIANAPOLIS 29, JACKSONVILLE 26
Colts - Braden Smith (RT) has become a fixture on the right side of Indy’s line, helping Andrew Luck keep his jersey clean again in the win, and helping pave the way for nearly 400 yards of offense.
WASHINGTON 16, TAMPA 3
Redskins - Cassanova McKinzy (LB) got one tackle in the win, and had his first career sack erased on a defensive holding penalty in the end zone.
Bucs - Peyton Barber (RB) ran for 61 yards on fourteen carries, and caught a single pass for five yards. Carlton Davis (CB) recorded five tackles, including a tackle for loss.
CHICAGO 34, DETROIT 22
Bears - Cody Parkey (K) had a BAD day for Chicago, doinking two extra points and two field goals off the uprights. He did make two kicks, and thankfully it didn’t cost him his job.
Lions - Kerryon Johnson (RB) ran fourteen times for 51 yards and a touchdown, while catching six passes for 38 yards in the loss.
LOS ANGELES CHARGERS 20, OAKLAND 6
Raiders - Daniel Carlson (K) had a better day than Parkey did, making both of his field goal attempts and scoring all of Oakland’s points in the loss.
