Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, New York Giants (15th Overall Pick)

A vital division game for the Giants in a game the defense needed to hold their ground against the elusive Michael Vick. Pierre-Paul as usual kept on coming with his array of moves, speed and long reach he was able to record 2 sacks and a combined total of 9 tackles. With the help of Pierre-Paul the Giants were able to rush Vick and Kafka and force several turnovers to get an important win.

Sean Lee, LB, Dallas Cowboys (55th Overall Pick)

Another great performance from the Cowboys new star MLB. Lee has stepped his game up beyond what anyone expected and he showed off his great skill set against the Redskins in stopping the run as well as in coverage as he caught another interception. Lee finished with a total of 8 tackles, 1 interception and a fumble recovery in the dying seconds of the game to secure an important divisional win for the Cowboys.

Ryan Mathews, RB, San Diego Chargers (12th Overall Pick)

Coming off a somewhat disappointing rookie season, Mathews has slowly worked his way to a bigger role in the Chargers offence. With his best game of the season Mathews was able to give his team the consistent running needed in a close game against division rivals, Chiefs. Mathews finished the game with 98 rushing yards and 2 TD’s while also playing a factor in the passing game with 51 receiving yards to give him a career high in yards from scrimmage.

Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots (42nd Overall Pick)

Another week, another great stat performance by the Patriots offense and Gronkowski who is now the top target for Brady in the endzone with a total of 5 touchdowns after week three. Against the Bills, Gronkowski had a career high with 109 yards on 7 receptions and 2 touchdowns.

Victor Cruz, WR, New York Giants (Undrafted)

A relative unknown and a player put into the starting rotation due to injuries. Cruz was not expected to do to much coming up against the Eagles heralded secondary but the undrafted second year player surprised everyone with 3 catches for 110 yards and 2 TD’s. The Giants would be very pleased with the new target for Eli and even moreso with the way Cruz was able to make the Eagles secondary look foolish.




Notable Players - Jimmy Graham (TE, Saints), LeGarrette Blount (RB, Buccaneers), Montario Hardesty (RB, Browns), Jahvid Best (RB, Lions), Colt McCoy (QB, Browns), Antonio Brown (WR, Steelers), David Nelson (WR, Bills), Ben Tate (RB, Texans), Donald Jones (WR, Bills), Morgan Burnett (S, Packers), Greg Hardy (DE, Panthers), Pat Angerer (LB, Colts)
