DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: EDGE MYLES GARRETT, CLEVELAND BROWNS

Garrett was utterly dominant again for the Browns this week, wrecking the Tennessee Titans offense as a pass rusher. The 2017 first overall draft pick registered four sacks, a hit and four hurries from 26 pass-rushing snaps. He finished with a 34.6% pass-rush win rate.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK: RB DE'VON ACHANE, MIAMI DOLPHINS

Along with the raw numbers, Achane was impressive at making defenders miss. He forced six missed tackles on 18 carries and added another three on his four receptions.

OFFENSIVE LINE OF THE WEEK: MIAMI DOLPHINS

The Dolphins' starting offensive line, and the team as a whole, allowed just a single pressure against Denver. The running game was boosted by an average of 5.14 yards after contact per carry, but three of the offensive line's five starters still finished the game with PFF run-blocking grades of 60.0 or better.
