DeMarco Murray continued his stellar season with a monster performance against the NFL’s fifth-ranked run defense in the Titans blowout win against the Packers. The league’s second-leading rusher (930 yards, 4.9 YPC) carried the ball 17 times for 123 yards, along with 2 receptions for 33 yards and his eighth rushing touchdown of the season.

The versatile and electric Murray has accounted for 11 total scores this season, including this dime — the first passing touchdown of his career — to tight end Delanie Walker in the end zone:

Sterling Shepard scored the go-ahead touchdown on 4th and goal in the Giants win against the Bengals on Monday night. Shep finished with 5 receptions for 42 yards and found the end zone for the fourth time this season.

Cali Sooners Damien Williams and Kenny Stills found the end zone for the Dolphins in a homecoming win in San Diego. Williams rushed twice for 2 yards and a touchdown and added this impressive 18-yard catch for his second score on the afternoon:

Stills started and caught 2 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown, while Jordan Phillips started and registered 2 tackles for Dolphins, who’ve reeled off four straight wins.

Kenny, the burner, going deep:

Happy Homecoming:

Sam Bradford’s Vikings are falling apart, as Washington handed Minnesota its’ fourth-straight loss after a 5-0 start. Bradford hung in there to make some tough plays in the face of relentless pressure all afternoon, and ranks behind only Tom Brady and Drew Brees in completion percentage on the season. Despite his offensive line’s struggles for yet another week, Sammy B completed 31 of his 40 passes for 307 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception — only his second of the season. Bradford’s schedule doesn’t get any easier, as the Vikings face the fast, hard-hitting defense of the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11.

Speaking of Arizona, Tony Jefferson racked up a team-high 7 tackles including one for a loss in the Cardinals home win against the 49ers. Jermaine Gresham started and caught 4 receptions for 37 yards in the same game.

The unheralded gem of the Cardinals defense:

Gerald McCoy grabbed 3 tackles and assisted on a sack in the Bucs home win against Chicago, while cornerback Demontre Hurst made 2 tackles for the Bears on the opposing side.

Aaron Colvin registered a tackle for loss and a sack in the Jaguars home loss against the Texans.

Corey Nelson racked up 4 tackles in a Broncos win in New Orleans.
