Unlike some of the past weeks, there has been no shortage of storylines for your NFL Rebs this week.

Elijah Moore recorded his first touchdown in his NFL career, DK Metcalf continues to be a freak of a human, and AJ Brown recorded another touchdown and 100+ yard game.

In the Manningcast this week, Peyton Manning was forced to wear an Ole Miss jersey after losing a bet with his brother, Eli. While Ole Miss fans watched Tennessee Alum and NFL Hall of Famer sporting an Ole Miss jersey, they also saw DK Metcalf lighting up the Saints' defense. It’s a good time to be a Rebel.

Make sure to check back weekly for all of your NFL Rebs updates.


  • Elijah Moore, New York Jets: Elijah Moore scored his first NFL touchdown on Sunday! He’s struggled this season with injuries and trying to make something happen on an abysmal Jets team. He only had one reception in the blowout loss to the Patriots, but it was enough for the touchdown. It was nice to a glimpse of the old Elijah Moore and his crazy shiftiness.
  • DK Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks: DK Metcalf continues to be absolutely ridiculous with every single one of his opportunities. The Seahawks faced the Saints in Monday Night Football and despite the loss, he averaged 48 yards per reception and logged a touchdown reception.

Like, come on.

  • A.J. Brown, Tennessee Titans: The Titans and A.J. Brown dominated the Kansas City Chiefs with a 27-3 win on Sunday night. A.J. Brown had 8 receptions for 133 yards and one touchdown. Averaging 16.6 yards per catch feels pretty good.
  • Robert Nkemdiche, Seattle Seahawks: Nkemdiche recorded one tackle in MNF loss to the Saints.
  • Evan Engram, NY Giants: Evan Engram showed out on National Tight End day with six receptions for 44 yards.
  • Royce Newman, Green Bay Packers: Newman has been the clear starter for the entire season, and Sunday was no different. Newman helped take the Packers to their sixth straight win over the Washington Football team.

  • Bobby Massie, Denver Broncos: backup right tackle for a Broncos squad that just suffered their fourth straight loss, despite starting the year 3-0.
