Touchdown Trevor led the Broncos to yet another victory.

NFL: San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Zach Strief - Saints

The Saints’ right tackle played a key role in the Saints 25-20 win over the Seahawks. Strief has also improved to the best right tackle by adjusted line yards on Football Outsiders. He’s still really good, and could make a Pro Bowl for the second time in his career.

Dan Vitale - Browns

Dan Vitale finally made his NFL debut! It came with his third team in as many months, but he’s not complaining. After being signed by the Browns, Vitale saw the field for 6 snaps against the Jets. The Browns lost 31-28 to the Jets.

Dean Lowry - Packers

Dean Lowry played just 2 snaps in the Packers’ 33-32 defeat to the Atlanta Falcons. He hasn’t gotten much playing time recently.

Ibraheim Campbell - Browns

Campbell played 51 percent of plays for the Browns but didn’t have a great game. He had two combined tackles, but the Browns secondary as a unit collapsed late in the game against the Jets. The Browns now have a legitimate chance at going 0-16 this season.

Corbin Bryant - Bills

Bryant had two tackles in the Bills’ 45-21 loss to New England last week. Bryant continues to settle in as a run-stuffer on the Bills’ line.

Brian Peters - Texans

Brian Peters was out with an quad injury for the Texans’ 20-13 win against the Lions.

Trevor Siemian - Broncos

In a rematch against a Chargers team that handed him his first loss as a starter, Trevor Siemian survived the loss of C.J. Anderson to win 27-19. Siemian threw the ball 38 times for 276 yards and threw his first career pick six. He had no touchdown passes, but he had some big throws late in the game. It was far from his best game in a Broncos uniform, but with the Broncos continuing to win games, there’s no chance of a quarterback change.
