Anthony Castanzo, Indianapolis Colts
This made me happy (via SBNation.com):
Castanzo recorded his first career touchdown in the Colts' 42-20 loss to the Patriots. When not paying homage to Dhalsim and, you know, blocking for Andrew Luck, he allowed just one sack on the night.
Gosder Cherilus, Indianapolis Colts
Along with Castanzo, Cherilus once again started on the Colts offensive line blocking for Andrew Luck. Allowed just one sack. The 6-2 Colts are back in action this weekend against Jacksonville.
Kasim Edebali, New Orleans Saints
Edebali recorded three tackles in the Saints' 27-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The 4-6 Saints—which share the NFC South Division lead with Atlanta, which, lol—are back in action on Monday night when they host the Baltimore Ravens.
Mark Herzlich, New York Giants
Herz had a pretty big day for the G-Men, recording nine tackles (six solo) and a pass deflection in New York's 16-10 loss to San Francisco. The 3-7 Giants host the 7-3 and division leading Dallas Cowboys next weekend in Sunday Night Football.
Mathias Kiwanuka, New York Giants
Kiwi added four tackles in the Giants' losing effort. The New York football Giants have lost five straight, albeit against a pretty daunting schedule—@ Philadelphia, @ Dallas, Indianapolis, @ Seattle, San Francisco.
Andre Williams, New York Giants
Logged just two yards rushing and four yards receiving in New York's loss to the 49ers. Going out on a limb to say that that's probably one of the few times in AW's career that he's gained more yards through the air than on the ground.
Luke Kuechly, Carolina Panthers
Continues to tackle everything that moves. Recorded 11 tackles and two passes defended in the Panthers' 19-17 loss to Matt Ryan and the Falcons. To no one's surprise, Kuechly leads the NFL in tackles with 116. The Panthers have the week off before they travel to Minneapolis to take on the Vikings (November 30 at 1 p.m.).
Al Louis-Jean, Chicago Bears
Didn't hit the stat sheet but did see the field in Chicago's victory over Minnesota. The victory snapped a three-game skid for Da Bears. Chicago hosts Tampa Bay this weekend.
Kevin Pierre-Louis, Seattle Seahawks
Just one tackle for KPL this week in a loss to Kansas City. The Seahawks host the NFL's best Arizona Cardinals (9-1) next weekend in Seattle. (NFL's best...Arizona Cardinals...did. not. see. that coming).
Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons
The Ice Man threw for 268 yards and a touchdown on 31-of-45 passing in Atlanta's 19-17 victory over Carolina. All of a sudden, Atlanta is right back in this thing in the NFC South despite losing five straight games to fall to 2-6 on the year heading into November. The NFC South is just THAT bad.
