The 15th week of the National Football League season came to a conclusion on Tuesday night, and took four days to complete due to the world’s issues with coronavirus. Here are the top five players on winning teams.
5) Josh Allen–Buffalo Bills
In the Bills’ 31-14 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Allen completed 19 of 34 passes for 210 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He also had 24 rushing yards, as the Bills improved to a record of eight wins and six losses. They are only one game back of the division-leading New England Patriots in the AFC East.
4) Jalen Hurts–Philadelphia Eagles
In the Eagles’ 27-17 win over the Washington Football Team on Tuesday, Hurts was playing in his first game since November 28 due to an ankle injury. As a result, he was flawless. Hurts completed 20 of 26 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also had 38 rushing yards and two other rushing touchdowns.

Throughout the game, Rodgers completed 23 of 31 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns as the Packers defeated the Baltimore Ravens 31-30.

2) Travis Kelce–Kansas City Chiefs
In a marvelous performance at the tight end position, Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs was an absolute beast on Thursday.
