NFL Top Players from Week 7
October 28, 2015 in Sports News
Another week comes to an end as the cheers and tears concluded so the teams get ready for another week not without any thought about the past games, that is why we bring a list of players that went beyond their expectations and are worth to mention from the several encounters, expect to see some Dolphins repeatedly because of their wonderful resurgence. So we start with -yes- no surprise there:
Dan Campbell – HC Dolphins
Who would have thought two weeks ago that the Miami Dolphins would rise like this? remember Week 4 when the Dolphins were not only the biggest disappointment of the season but perhaps one of the worst teams in the NFL
now their reality is a very different one for the team’s face and that of each of his players, who have spoken and said they are a completely different group with Campbell as their head coach.
Todd Gurley – Rams RB
His stock rises each week, the rookie from Georgia shows us every week he is the running back the Rams have been waiting for. Gurley has rushed for 125 yards in each of the last three games averaging 5.3 yards per attempt on those encounters. St.Louis attack looks much more balanced and dangerous thanks to his performance.
Ryan Tannehill – Dolphins QB
Having thrown only 19 passes and not exceeding 300 yards might call into question the place of Tannehill here, but having completed four touchdowns in the first half and had just missed a single pass in the game, in fact his last pass. These are good reasons for him to maintain this position.
Rob Gronkowski – Patriots TE
It was obvious Gronk would have a busy day against the Jets, with New England closing in to just running the ball and with Darrelle Revis covering Edelman. Despite this he managed to still get 11 passes for 108 yards and the winning touchdown that made the score final for the Patriots.
Chris Johnson – RB Cardinals
Each day the running game becomes more important for the Arizona squad, Chris Johnson has taken the responsibility and taking advantage as a starter. Several years have passed without seeing this RB play like this, with speed and exploiting his talent to such degree.
And now the offensive forces that were the key figures in achieving their expectations or even going beyond them, along with the players that made the difference for their franchises in one way or another, the first spot is for a player that has not stopped his drive in the entire season, an example of a strong starting wide receiver for any team:
Amari Cooper – Raiders WR
Since the start of the season, the WR for the Raiders has played like a quality veteran, this week he racked up 133 yards against San Diego, and thus entered a very special group, he is the third rookie in NFL history to reach 500 yards in his first 6 games, only Randy Moss and Anquan Boldin have managed such a feat in the past.
Lamar Miller – Dolphins RB
Since Dan Campbell arrived as head coach, the work and need for Miller has increased a lot and the running back has exploited this in the correct manner. Against Houston he ran 17 times for an impressive 236 yards with two touchdowns and 10 yards per carry.
T.J Yeldon – Jaguars RB
The Rookie from Alabama is doing what he does best running with the ball but also -and most importantly- he is removing the pressure to Bortles, the Jaguars are adding a lot more talent on offense and that talent, much of which is deposited in Yeldon with 115 yards on 20 attempts and one TD.
Michael Bennett – Seahawks
Colin Kaepernick is still getting pressured in his sleep after the number of times that Michael Bennett was on him this weekend, definitely something this defense needed more than anything, More pressure. And with 3.5 sacks from the defensive end. The Seahawks could not ask for more after that performance.
Charcandrick West – Chiefs RB
Replacing Jamaal Charles is not an easy task but this young graduate of Abilene Christian seems to have the talent to do it and he showed us this week, running for 110 yards and a touchdown, and as the title of this article states he was the key figure in securing the win for the Kansas City team.
