Jeremiah Attaochu started for the San Diego Chargers in their 31-14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. In the effort, Attaochu had three tackles.

T.J. Barnes, DT, New York Jets (2008-2012)

Though he didn't register any stats, T.J. Barnes played in relief in the New York Jets' 24-17 loss to a seemingly revitalized Philadelphia Eagles offense.

Mario Butler, CB, Buffalo Bills (2007-2009)

The Buffalo Bills' defense didn't have much of a problem handling the Miami Dolphins' offense, trouncing them 41-14. Mario Butler played as a reserve and got one tackle.

Andrew Gardner, OG, Philadelphia Eagles (2005-2008)

Andrew Gardner started for the Philadelphia Eagles in a game that saw what seemed like a revitalized offense. The offense only gained 231 yards, but the Eagles finally found a 100-yard rusher in Ryan Mathews.

Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit Lions (2004-2006)

Calvin Johnson was one part of the main clash of the Jackets as he and the Detroit Lions took on Demaryius Thomas, Vance Walker and the Denver Broncos. The Lions lost that game, as Johnson hauled in eight catches for 77 yards.

Michael Johnson, DE, Cincinnati Bengals (2005-2008)

In another clash of the Jackets, Michael Johnson and the Cincinnati Bengals won a 28-24 match-up over the Baltimore Ravens (Daryl Smith and Darren Waller). In the contest, Johnson started and had a tackle.

Shaquille Mason, OG, New England Patriots (2011-2014)

After starting last week, Shaq Mason was relegated back to his reserve role as the Patriots took on beat absolutely murdered the Jacksonville Jaguars 51-17.

The Tennessee Titans took on the Indianapolis Colts this week and lost by a final score of 35-33. Derrick Morgan had a solid day, finishing with a tackle and a pass deflection.

Daryl Smith, LB, Baltimore Ravens (2000-2003)

In the Ravens' loss to the Bengals, Daryl Smith continued to be a key cog in the Ravens' defense. He finished the game with seven tackles from the inside linebacker spot.

Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver Broncos (2006-2008)

Getting back to the main clash of the Jackets, Demaryius Thomas held onto his title of top Pro Jacket, finishing the game with nine catches for 92 yards and a touchdown as the Broncos beat Calvin Johnson and the Lions.

Vance Walker, DE, Denver Broncos (2005-2008)

Vance Walker did his part to help the Broncos win that game by starting at defensive end and earning a tackle.

Darren Waller, WR, Baltimore Ravens (2011-2014)

In the Ravens' loss to the Bengals, Darren Waller played, but did not accumulate any stats.
