After struggling to start the season, Randall Cobb had a huge game last week, when he caught 9 passes for 108 yards, including the catch for a first down that sealed the win for the Packers over the New York Giants. Cobb was a little banged up after that game, so some wondered how he’d fare this week against the Dallas Cowboys. Cobb managed to catch 7 passes for 53 yards and his first touchdown of the season. Unfortunately, not even Green Bay’s stout defense could slow down the rookie duo in Dallas, as the Packers fell 30-16.

Josh Forrest had one of his better efforts of the season for the Los Angeles Rams today. He recorded three total tackles, including two big tackles for loss in a losing effort. The Rams fell to Larry Warford and the Detroit Lions, 31-28.

Avery Williamson led all players from both teams in tackles for the Tennessee Titans in their game against the Cleveland Browns this afternoon. Williamson recorded 9 tackles, including a sack. Also for the Titans, Wesley Woodyard made 3 tackles, and also added a sack. The Titans take home the victory, 28-26.
Staying on the defensive side of the ball, Danny Trevathan had four tackles and a QB pressure in the Chicago Bears one-point loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Can’t forget about Jacob Tamme down in Atlanta. The Falcons fell to the Seahawks in Seattle, and Jacob Tamme wasn’t a huge factor in the offense. He caught two passes on three targets for 16 yards.
