Tyreek Hill, wide receiver, Kansas City Chiefs

After starting the season with a bang against New England, Tyreek Hill fell back down to earth some Sunday. He caught four passes for 43 yards and the Eagles limited him from making the explosive plays that fans have grown accustomed to seeing from Hill. Hill also rushed the ball one time for 6 yards.

 

Dez Bryant, wide receiver, Dallas Cowboys

Although his numbers improved from the opener, Dez Bryant struggled against the Broncos’ outstanding defense in Denver’s 42-17 domination of the Cowboys on Sunday. Receiving a whopping 16 targets, Bryant had an inefficient game, making seven catches for 59 yards. Bryant caught a touchdown late in the game for his first score of the season. In addition, he had a questionable offensive pass interference call that stalled a drive at a time in the game when Dallas needed to put up points.

Chris Carson continues to impress in Seattle as a seventh round rookie. Even with the return of Thomas Rawls, Carson received the most playing time of any Seattle running back. He picked up 93 yards on the ground off 20 carries, and also caught one pass for 7 yards. Carson appears to have gained the trust of the Seattle coaching staff to lead the Seahawks’ rushing attack. He is still searching for his first career touchdown and will look to achieve it Sunday against the Titans.

 

Dan Bailey, kicker, Dallas Cowboys

Dan Bailey didn’t get many opportunities during the Broncos’ dismantling of the Cowboys on Sunday, attempting only one field goal. He tied his career-long of 56 yards, easily sending it through the uprights in Denver.

 

Emmanuel Ogbah, defensive end, Cleveland Browns

In a disappointing performance against the Ravens, Emmanuel Ogbah failed to produce a tackle or a sack. He will look to rebound from a rough start to the season Sunday against the Colts’ shaky offensive line when the Browns visit Indianapolis.
