On throws targeted 10 or more yards downfield, Jackson went 9-of-20 for 163 yards but suffered five drops from his receivers.

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

Achane continues to be a cheat code in the Dolphins' offense. His efficiency as a runner has been something to behold through this season. He racked up 151 yards on just 11 carries against the New York Giants, forcing four missed tackles in the process. Achane is now averaging 12.1 yards per carry in 2023.

OFFENSIVE LINE OF THE WEEK: DETROIT LIONS

The Lions' offensive line had another nice outing in their win over the Panthers, with their starting five linemen combining to allow six pressures. Center Frank Ragnow and right tackle Penei Sewell each surrendered zero pressures. Detroit had a strong day running the ball, with 3.2 of the offense's 5.3 yards-per-carry average coming before contact.
