Although receiver Terrance Williams’ 141 receiving yards  may overshadow Dez Bryant’s performance, he had a productive day on Sunday. Bryant caught six passes off 11 targets for 73 yards, his second highest yardage total of the season. On his biggest play of the afternoon, he made a leaping 21-yard catch to convert a third-and-15 that moved the chains and led to a touchdown before halftime. However, Bryant left the game early in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury and didn’t return. It is uncertain whether the injury will cause him to miss time.

Tyreek Hill, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

Tyreek Hill made an unbelievable play to end the first half in Dallas. With only two seconds remaining, he caught a pass with blockers in front of him and proceeded to weave through the Cowboys’ defense for a 56-yard touchdown. The score brought the Chiefs within three points and got them right back in the game. Other than that play, however, the Cowboys defense shut Hill down, catching only one pass for eight yards at the end of the game.

Lane Taylor, OL, Green Bay Packers

It is questionable if Lane Taylor will be able to go on Monday Night Football because of an ankle injury he suffered in Week 7 against Minnesota. The injury would keep him out of his second consecutive game if he is unable to play. Taylor has played left guard as well as filling in at left tackle this season.
