Dez Bryant, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant had a solid game on a rainy Sunday in Washington. For much of the game, Bryant battled cornerback Josh Norman, who returned to the field on Sunday after missing the past few weeks with a chest injury. On six targets, he made four catches for 39 yards. Although it wasn’t an ultra-productive day for Bryant, he made a few vital catches to keep the chains moving for Dallas. One of his catches converted a third down on the Cowboys’ final drive that allowed them to continue running out the clock.

After being inactive against the Jets, Vincent Taylor returned to the field on Thursday night in Baltimore. He didn’t make a big impact on defense, finishing with only one tackle in limited snaps. However, Taylor made an impact play on special teams during the third quarter when he blocked kicker Justin Tucker’s field goal attempt.

Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Cleveland Browns

Emmanuel Ogbah had a disappointing game in London against the Vikings. Facing Minnesota’s shaky offensive line, he didn’t make a tackle or a sack. Ogbah failed to produce, though he received more playing time with defensive end Myles Garrett out of the lineup with a concussion. Ogbah will continue work on his play during Cleveland’s bye week and look ahead to a matchup with the Lions in Week 10.

Blake Jarwin, TE, Dallas Cowboys

Although he didn’t play against the Redskins, it was a big week for Blake Jarwin. The tight end was brought up to the Cowboys’ active roster after spending the first seven weeks of the season on the practice squad. Reports are that Dallas made the move to keep the Philadelphia Eagles from claiming Jarwin. The Eagles were interested in adding him to their roster.
