Yannick Ngakoue’s star-studded season continued in the Jaguars’ 19-7 win over the Browns, as he totaled 2.5 sacks. One of his sacks was the difference-maker for Jacksonville, as Ngakoue jarred the ball loose and it was returned for a touchdown.

Nagkoue is now sixth in the NFL in sacks (9.0) and first in forced fumbles (5).

We think you should help vote Yannick into the Pro Bowl!

LA Chargers kicker Nick Novak received high praise Sunday after his nearly perfect performance in a 52-24 victory over the Bills, knocking down 4-of-5 field goals and six extra points for 18 total points in the game. It was the most points in a game for Novak in his career.

Former Terps wide receiver Torrey Smith helped the Philadelphia Eagles rise to a league-best record of 9-1, recording 28 yards on three receptions. Smith fought his way into the end zone after an 11-yard catch from Carson Wentz to put the Eagles up 23-9 late in the third quarter.

Smith appears to be thoroughly enjoying himself this season as the Eagles look poised to win the NFC East.

Elsewhere in the NFC East, tight end Vernon Davis continues to lead the Redskins in reception yards totaling 67 yards in Sunday’s overtime loss to the Saints.

In Pittsburgh, safety Sean Davis stood strong with three tackles and a late fourth-quarter interception. Davis ran the ball 41 yards to Pittsburgh's 37-yard line closing the 40-17 victory over the Titans. The win helped the Steelers improve to 8-2 for the season.

Lastly, Stefon Diggs came off a 78-yard performance against the Redskins last week with 32 receiving yards to help the Vikings past the LA Rams in a 24-7 victory.
