We'll be checking in on PFF grades and data each Monday when numbers are finalized, highlighting some of the interesting performances from Sunday’s action.

Here are the top stories from Week 10.

WR Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings

PFF grade: 91.1

Jefferson produced a performance for the ages in the Vikings' overtime win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 10, racking up 193 receiving yards. His 3.22 yards per route run on the day ranked third among all players who were on the field for 30 or more receiving snaps, while his seven contested catches — including the one that will go down as one of the best of all time — are the most in a game since PFF began charting the stat. 

QB Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

PFF grade: 91.4

Mahomes was dominant once again as the Chiefs reeled off their third straight win, opening up a two-game lead at the top of the AFC West in the process. On throws beyond the sticks, Mahomes did throw an interception but still went 10-for-13 for 197 yards and two scores.

QB Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

PFF grade: 91.0

Tagovailoa threw three touchdowns and no interceptions for the third straight week, continuing what has been, by far, his best season in the NFL. Against the Browns, he was once again fantastic throwing beyond the sticks, going 12-for-15 for 191 yards and two touchdowns. It wasn’t just the Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle show, either, with Tua spreading the ball around to the point that they were just two of the five Dolphins players to have at least four receptions on the day.

LB Fred Warner, San Francisco 49ers

PFF grade: 90.2

In what was his highest-graded game of the season so far, Warner delivered for the 49ers in their win over the Los Angeles Chargers. In coverage, he was on the field for 38 snaps, allowing just two of the four passes thrown into his coverage to be caught for a meager 15 yards. Against the run, he had a tackle resulting in a defensive stop and produced an 81.7 PFF run-defense grade.

DI Leonard Williams, New York Giants

PFF grade: 90.5

Another player who produced his best performance of the season, Williams was phenomenal against the run in the Giants' win over the Houston Texans. From 17 snaps in run defense, Williams registered three tackles, all of which resulted in a defensive stop, and he forced a fumble. As a pass-rusher, he registered a sack and three hurries from 42 snaps.
