  • Adrian Amos is quietly having a really fantastic career, and Sunday was perhaps his best game. Amos tallied seven tackles, two passes defended, his second career sack and his second career interception. Good gracious.
  • Welcome to the NFL, Jason Cabinda! In his second career game, Cabinda made the first four tackles of his career on just 15 defensive snaps.
  • British transplant Jack Crawford has been on a quite a tear. On Sunday against Washington, Crawford recorded three tackles and his first two-sack game, and now has a career-high 4.5 sacks on the season. Nasty!
  • Cam Wake helped the Dolphins completely suffocate the Jets with three tackles and two sacks.
