DeMarco Murray rushed 14 times for 51 yards and 1 touchdown, and added a game-high 7 receptions for 29 yards in the Titans loss to the Chargers in San Diego. Through 9 games, the NFL’s second-leading rusher sits at 807 yards and 7 touchdowns on 174 carries and is averaging 4.6 yards per attempt. The multi-purpose Murray has also added 35 receptions for 226 and 2 touchdowns while only losing 1 fumble on what looks to be an All-Pro season.
Damien Williams rushed 5 times for 29 yards and added 2 receptions for 20 yards in the Dolphins win against the Jets. Kenny Stills started and managed just 1 catch for 11 yards. Jordan Phillips also started and registered one tackle, intercepted a pass from Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, then hurdled a guy and proceeded to briefly rumble downfield. This would’ve been one epic pick-6:

Aaron Ripkowski started and carried twice for 4 yards and added 3 yards on 1 catch in the Packers loss against the Colts.
The struggles continued for Sam Bradford and the Vikings, who have lost three straight after beginning the season 5-0. Bradford went 31-of-40 for 273 yards and 1 touchdown, and also added 1 catch for 5 yards in the home loss against the Lions. Minnesota’s offensive line showed some improvement from the dismal showings of the last two games, surrendering only 2 sacks on the afternoon, but the Vikings still struggled to score in the red zone. Minny heads to Washington next week.
