NFL Week 8: Over and Under Best Bets

NFL Week 6 Stat Recap Table: QB, RB and WR

For some, it was an amazing week, like Tom Brady, Todd Gurley and Tyreek Hill. For others like Marcus Mariota, it was a week to forget. The Titans allowed him to be sacked 11 times, and yet he completed only 10 passes. It’s not uncommon to see something like this when a backup comes in for a possession or two, but Mariota played the entire game. Either the Ravens defense was on fire, or the Titans are in desperate need of a offensive line.

Notable Performances

  • Jameis Winston, Andrew Luck ,and Patrick Mahomes tossed for 4 touchdowns
  • Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers both produced 2 touchdowns, along with last minute game winning drives

Notable performances:

  • Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers toss for 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions
