Here are the top stories from Week 13.


WR Davante Adams, Las Vegas Raiders

PFF grade: 92.3

Adams has dominated as a member of the Raiders this season, with six 100-plus-yard receiving games heading into Week 13, and he racked up 177 yards on two touchdowns against the Los Angeles Chargers to add to that tally. Coming on 30 receiving snaps, Adams averaged 5.90 yards per route run in the win and saw 10 of his 12 receptions either move the chains or put points on the board.


WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Detroit Lions

PFF grade: 90.0

A fourth-round pick out of USC a year ago, St. Brown has furthered his credentials as a top receiver with an impressive 2022 season to date. His performance in Sunday’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars was the fourth straight game that he produced an 80.0-plus PFF grade. St. Brown recorded 11 receptions for 114 yards, with nine of those receptions going for a first down and the other two resulting in touchdowns.


S Minkah Fitzpatrick, Pittsburgh Steelers

PFF grade: 92.0

It’s been another impressive season for the star safety, with the Steelers' win over the Atlanta Falcons arguably his best outing of the season so far. From 25 snaps in coverage, he saw three targets and allowed two receptions for 21 yards. Then, with the Falcons attempting to mount a game-winning drive from their own 2-yard line, Fitzpatrick sealed the game with an interception.


LB Roquan Smith, Baltimore Ravens

PFF grade: 92.5

Smith has made a huge impact for the Baltimore Ravens since his arrival from the Chicago Bears just before the trade deadline this season. Sunday’s win over the Denver Broncos was his best outing for the team and his highest-graded performance of the season so far. In coverage, he allowed just two receptions for 12 yards. Against the run, he produced a run-defense grade of 90.6, registering two defensive stops.


CB DaRon Bland, Dallas Cowboys

PFF grade: 94.3

A fifth-round draft pick out of Fresno State this year, Bland delivered the best performance of his young career on Sunday Night Football in a win over the Colts. Coming into the game, Bland had allowed 27 receptions for 273 yards from 31 targets on 162 snaps in coverage. From 34 coverage snaps against the Colts, he let up just two receptions for 9 yards on five targets, coming away with two interceptions.
