Cincinnati Bengals –Giovani Bernard‘s 130 receiving yards on screen passes leads the league. He has caught nine of 11 screen passes. The three other running backs with over 100 receiving yards off of screens have 14 or more screen receptions.
Denver Broncos –Melvin Gordon leads all running backs on power run plays in terms of attempts (46), yards (309), first downs (15) and avoided tackles (13). No other back is within 100 yards of him. Phillip Lindsay ranks fifth with 173 rushing yards.
Los Angeles Rams – The Rams are tied for third in average yards before contact per attempt at 1.8. This is a big upgrade from last season when they averaged 1.0 yards before contact per attempt.
