In Kansas City’s loss to the Steelers, the Chiefs’ first loss, Tyreek Hill didn’t have a strong game. He caught five passes for 34 yards, failing to make any of the explosive plays he is so good at making. In addition, Hill’s lone rushing attempt went for a 9-yard loss. Although he failed to make a huge impact on offense, he had a good day in the return game, averaging 13 yards per return.

Lane Taylor, OL, Green Bay Packers

Lane Taylor has been one of the only constants on a Green Bay offensive line that has been injury ravaged this season. That changed Sunday when Taylor went down with an ankle and knee injury after quarterback Brett Hundley rolled up on him. Before the injury, he had moved back inside to his natural position at left guard after filling in at left tackle for David Bakhtiari the past few weeks.

Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Cleveland Browns

After a pedestrian performance against Cincinnati, Emmanuel Ogbah’s slump continued Sunday. He finished the game with two tackles, which was his lowest total in the past four games. Ogbah failed to record a sack for the second consecutive game. The return of Myles Garrett has had an effect on Ogbah’s playing time, and he needs to capitalize on his opportunities when he is on the field. Ogbah will look to rebound when the Browns host the Titans on Sunday.

Vincent Taylor, DT, Miami Dolphins

Vincent Taylor put together a solid few weeks of play; however, he failed to record a tackle Sunday against the Falcons. The return of starting defensive tackle Jordan Phillips, who had been sidelined because of an ankle injury, resulted in less playing time for Taylor. He played nine defensive snaps after averaging 25 snaps per game the past three weeks.
