After four awesome weeks for Rebels in the NFL, week 5 may have been a little slower. The 2019 season is still better than anything in the last decade, however, so keep that in mind.
DK Metcalf had two catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks 30-29 win over the Rams, but it was off the field where D.K. made his best play.

Dawson Knox just had two catches for 12 yards—still a better game than when Phil Longo called plays—but he went viral on twitter for all the wrong reasons. Talk about head-to-head contact.

A.J. Brown had two catches for 27 yards, but the Bills defense was just that good, as they held the Titans down in a 14-7 win.
Evan Engram continues to be Danny Dimes No. 1 target. The tight end had six catches for 42 yards, but had the ball thrown his direction 11 times.
Another game, another play where Mike Hilton is in the right place at the right time. With the Ravens leading 17-10 and under a minute to go in the half, Hilton jumped the route, and his interception led to a Steelers field goal to go in to the locker room. A Mason Rudolph injury ensured the Ravens held on for a victory, but it’s always nice seeing Mike Hilton do Mike Hilton things.

Brandon Bolden had five carries for just 13 yards, but with the Patriots moving to 5-0 and their defense has allowed only 34 points in five games. Bolden could very well be on his way to his third Super Bowl ring in New England.
Speaking of rings, Eli Manning may have been relegated to the sidelines this season in New York, but it didn’t stop him from making one girl’s day.

Marquis Haynes had a tackle and a fumble recovery for the Panthers in a 34-27 victory over the Jaguars. The big play came with less than two minutes remaining in a one score game, and Haynes showed off the running back skills as he raced 15 yards on the fumble return.
Greg Little received an 89.5 pass blocking grade (rounds up to an A here at The Cup) and didn’t allow a pressure in his first NFL start. Unfortunately, Little went back into concussion protocol and missed the Panthers week five game. I expect Little will stay there for at least a few more weeks to a month, as this is his second stint of the season.
Laremy Tunsil, left tackle or road grader? Texans whipped the Falcons 53-32, if that helps his case.

Best thing we saw this week goes to D.J. Jones however. Ahead of the 49ers Monday Night Football domination of the Browns, 31-3, Jones had a special moment with friends and family on the field.
