Top five NFL performers from week eight

By

The National Football League is nearing the trade deadline. Here are the top five performers on winning teams from week eight.

5) Ryan Tannehill–Tennessee Titans–Now that Titans star running back Derrick Henry is out with a broken foot, expect Tennessee to throw the football more. On Sunday, Tannehill completed 23 of 33 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns, along with two rushes for 26 yards, as the Titans beat the Indianapolis Colts 34-31 in overtime.

4) Jimmy Garoppolo–San Francisco 49ers–The 49ers offense came to life on Sunday as they went into Chicago and came away with an impressive 33-22 victory. Garoppolo did not throw a touchdown pass, but did complete 17 of 28 passes for 322 yards, and had two rushing touchdowns.

3) Matthew Stafford–Los Angeles Rams–There is no doubt that Matthew Stafford is getting comfortable in his new surroundings with the Rams. On Sunday, Stafford orchestrated the Rams offense with complete ease, as he completed 21 of 32 passes for 305 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-22 Rams win over the Houston Texans.

2) Mike White–New York Jets–In his first career NFL start, Mike White was brilliant. After what happened on Sunday, there will be a lot of upset Jets fans if head coach Robert Saleh decides to play Zach Wilson anytime soon. White was that impressive on the field. In a 34-31 Jets upset win over the Cincinnati Bengals, White completed 37 of 45 passes for 405 yards and three touchdowns. It was only the second Jets win of the season. Their other win was a 27-24 upset win over the Tennessee Titans on October 3.

1) Josh Allen–Buffalo Bills–There is no doubt that the Buffalo Bills are the best team in the AFC East. On Sunday, Allen was strong passing and running with the football. He completed 29 of 42 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns, and had eight rushes for 55 yards and one touchdown as the Bills beat the Miami Dolphins 26-11.
