NFL Gamecock Roundup: Captain, Joseph, and Stewart rule the backfield

Minnesota Vikings 20, Atlanta Falcons 10
Captain Munnerlyn earned it out there on Sunday, with three tackles, a pass deflection, and an interception that came in the second quarter. As for Patty DiMarco, he was back to his old blocking ways, going without a carry or a catch, but he paved the way for Tevin Coleman's 110 rushing yards.

St. Louis Rams 7, Cincinnati Bengals 31
Despite the brutal loss and general lack of offensive production from the Rams, Jared Cook had a fine game. Cook had four catches for 58 yards, making it his second four-catch game in a row.

New Orleans Saints 6, Houston Texans 24
Johnathan Joseph was looking to hit somebody in this one. He had seven tackles, including two for a loss of yards, as well as a pass deflection. Jadeveon Clowney pitched in as well, with two tackles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 12, Indianapolis Colts 25

New York Giants 20, Washington Redskins 14
Jasper Brinkley continued his comeback tour with six tackles, including one for a loss. Meanwhile, Chris Culliver's season is over after tearing his right ACL/MCL in practice on Thursday. Missing you already, Cully!

San Diego Chargers 31, Jacksonville Jaguars 25
Melvin Ingram was no help at all for the Chargers on Sunday, recording no stats in the contest. 

Buffalo Bills 22, Kansas City Chiefs 30
A fine game here from Stephon Gilmore, who made five tackles and deflected a pass.

Miami Dolphins 20, New York Jets 38

Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans
In 206 tries, Ryan Succop had never missed an extra point. Things change. Succop missed his first (and hopefully last) extra point of his career in the Titans' loss. Do you think kickers like the new extra point rule? I don't think they do.

Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers
The all-too-rarely-used Bruce Ellington had three kick returns for 67 yards, which is nice, but doesn't exactly make up for fumbling away the ball on one of those. Whoops. 

Pittsburgh Steelers 30, Seattle Seahawks 39

New England Patriots at Denver Broncos
Phew! For a second there it looked like Darian Stewart was going to be known as the guy who ended Rob Gronkowski's season and dashed the Patriots' Super Bowl hopes. Instead he's the guy who injured Gronkowski just long enough for the Broncos to spoil New England's perfect season. Stewart also had four tackles and three pass deflections, so yeah, he had a nice little game.

Baltimore Ravens 33, Cleveland Browns 27
