Another weekend is in the books in the NFL, and several Wildcats saw significant action. Let’s get right into the thick of things.

Sherrick McManis, CB, Bears

McManis and the Bears finally picked up a win this season, beating the Lions 17-14 at Soldier Field. McManis played on 16 snaps (70 percent) on special teams and saw no action defensively. He made one tackle.

Brian Peters, LB, Texans

Houston got back to its winning ways, and Peters once again played a major role on special teams, playing on 20 snaps (67 percent) in that area. He recorded two tackles. With six special takedowns this year, Peters is in a tie for second most special teams tackles in the league, one behind a host of leaders. He led the league in the category last year.

Corbin Bryant, DT, Bills

Bryant got another start and the Bills had their best effort, defensively, of the season. Bryant played on 25 snaps (45 percent) defensively and seven snaps (32 percent) on special teams for the suddenly resurgent Bills, who beat New England 16-0. Bryant recorded two tackles.

Zach Strief, RT, Saints

Another ho-hum day at the office for Strief. He was solid once again as the Saints beat the Chargers in a 35-34 thriller. He’ll just keep being a great tackle forever, we suppose.

Trevor Siemian, QB, Broncos

As per usual, we end with Siemian, although it’s a little different this week because we already updated his status. You can read that right here.

And here’s another encouraging sign from Monday.

NOTE: Dean Lowry had an off week for the Packers and Ibraheim Campbell was inactive for the Browns against the Redskins.
