Heck yeah!

 

The Saints pass on Tigers, trade 1st rounders. WTH.

Meanwhile, most of the teams in your same division are moving away from the pack. The Saints are falling behind.

Defensive Rookie of the Year through one quarter of the season:

The NFL's pick for Defensive Rookie of the Month was cornerback Tre'Davious White, who has played regularly and effectively. Buffalo's first-round pick has been on the field for 256 snaps, second in the league among defensive rookies behind Jets safety Marcus Maye. Teams have gone after the former LSU standout, but White has held his own; his eight passes defensed are tied for the league lead with Chiefs corner Terrance Mitchell. White also returned a fumble for a crucial touchdown in Sunday's win over the Falcons, although he also committed a pass interference penalty on the Buffalo 1-yard line against Mohamed Sanu.

Most of the other candidates are in the secondary. The Jets' safety duo of Maye and sixth overall pick Jamal Adams have exceeded all expectations. Adams' versatility and ability to play multiple roles in a defense lacking playmakers behind the defensive line has been noticeable.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette

Fournette had his NFL breakout game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars running back had 28 carries for 181 yards and two impressive touchdowns. The first he leapt five yards over the pile into the end zone and later he busted a 90-yard touchdown run as the Jags were trying to run out the clock in the 30-9 win.

Miami Dolphins DT Davon Godchaux

Godchaux only had two tackles against the Titans but he made it count as he forced a fumble from DeMarco Murray in the first quarter which led to the Dolphins first score in what turned out to be a 16-10 Miami win.

Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry

Landry provided the Dolphins only offensive touchdown against the Titans when he caught a 6-yard pass in the fourth quarter to give Miami the 16-10 lead. He finished with five grabs for 44 yards.

Mills had four tackles and almost had as many pass breakups against the Cardinals. He broke up three passes in the Eagles' 34-7 win over the Cardinals.

Seattle Seahawks OL Ethan Pocic

Pocic gets credit for standing out this week not because he started - he didn't but he did get time on the offensive line - but for his return game efforts. Pocic fielded a short kick by the Rams and had a 13-yard kickoff return in the second quarter of the Seahawks' 16-10 victory.

Buffalo Bills CB Tre'Davious White

White had two tackles and added three pass breakups in the Bills' 20-16 loss to Cincinnati. White now has 11 passes defended this season, tops in the NFL.

The jersey Leonard Fournette wore for his historic 90-yard touchdown run Sunday will be sent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

The Jacksonville Jaguars posted to Twitter a photo of the jersey worn by the former LSU running back when he became the youngest player in NFL history to score on a run of 90 yards.
