There's a new receiving leader in the National Football League and he goes by the name of Stefon Diggs. Yes, that Stefon Diggs! 

The third-year pro had another sensational game for the Vikings last weekend, totaling five catches for 98 yards (19.6 yards/catch). The big game vaulted Diggs into the NFL lead in receiving yards with 391, which ranks ahead of All-Pro Antonio Brown and teammate Adam Thielen.

Prior his game Sunday, Diggs was on the sideline to witness the Terps' 31-24 victory over Minnesota in Minneapolis. Diggs was joined by two-time consensus All-American EJ Henderson.

Second-year pro Yannick Ngakoue, meanwhile, continues to wreak havoc on opposing backfields - this time racking up two sacks and a forced fumble against the Jets. Ngakoue is now tied for the NFL lead in forced fumbles and ranks t-sixth in sacks.

In other news, veteran Vernon Davis still has it. A week after scoring a touchdown, Davis led the Redskins with 89 receiving yards on two catches. He dazzled the Monday Night Football audience with a 69-yard catch-and-run as he flew down the field.

Sean Davis totaled five tackles and a PBU in a Steelers win over the Ravens, while Torrey Smith had one catch for nine yards and Trey Edmunds had a special teams tackle.

Finally, veteran placekicker Nick Novak signed with the Los Angeles Chargers Thursday.
