Sanders top 100 rushing yards for the first time this season

Miles Sanders is doing everything he can to get the Eagles back on track, going over 100 yards for the first time this season. He ripped off a massive run in the third corner, which he fumbled in the endzone but was ultimately recovered for an Eagle touchdown. It wasn't all good news as he went down with an injury on the play, did not return, and is likely to miss Philadelphia's Thursday night game against the Giants.

Jones Gets First Sack of the Year

DaQuan Jones has been the heart of the Tennessee Titans' defensive line, en route to a perfect 5-0 start. The seventh-year pro got to the quarterback for the first time this season thanks to a great effort play.

McGovern gets first extended action

Connor McGovern has had some tough injury luck to start his NFL career, but he finally got his chance on Monday night. The second-year guard got thrown into action on Monday night as injuries piled up along the offensive line for the Dallas Cowboys. While the Cowboys struggled to get anything going on offense, McGovern played pretty well for his first extended action in over a year.
