Former Oklahoma Sooners rushing great DeMarco Murray had himself quite a Week 10. After being hampered by a frustrating hamstring injury all season, the 2014 NFL rushing champ finally enjoyed a big performance and led the Titans to their fourth-straight win.

Murray scored all three of Tennessee’s touchdowns against the Bengals on Sunday — two on the ground and the game-winner in the air — to complement his 42 rushing yards on 14 carries and 30 yards on four receptions. This one sealed the victory:

On the other side for the Bengals was another former Oklahoma running back, rookie Joe Mixon, who finished with 37 yards on nine carries and three yards on three catches in the loss against the Titans. Mixon did find the end zone for the third time this season, while his teammate Jordan Evans also got on the stat sheet with two tackles for the Cincinnati defense.

Cardinals teammates Adrian Peterson and Jermaine Gresham were in action in primetime on Thursday night against the Seahawks. AD finished with 29 yards on 21 tough carries and added a reception for 13 yards, while Gresh caught five passes on seven targets for 64 yards and this touchdown, his second of the season:

Sterling Shepard and the Giants came up short against the 49ers in Week 10, but Shep tallied a game-high 11 receptions for 142 yards on 13 targets on the afternoon. He also made this killer catch:

Packers fullback Aaron Ripkowski rushed twice for three yards and added one reception for 12 yards in a win against the Bears.

Gerald McCoy grabbed three tackles and a sack in the Buccaneers win over the Jets.

Samaje Perine rushed nine times for 35 yards and added a catch for 25 yards for Washington in a loss to the Vikings. Perine’s teammate Stacy McGee registered four solo tackles and assisted on four more on the defensive side.

Aaron Colvin recorded one solo and two assisted tackles along with a defended pass in the Jaguars win over the LA Chargers.

Dolphins starters Damien Williams and Kenny Stills were in action for the Miami offense on Monday Night Football. Williams finished with 19 yards on nine carries and added 20 yards on two receptions. Stills was targeted eight times and came down with five receptions for 67 yards in the loss to the Panthers.

Sam Bradford was placed on the injured reserve last week, thereby officially ending what seemed like a second promising season with the Vikings. Dede Westbrook is expected to be active for the Jaguars in Week 11.
