If last week didn’t satisfy football fans looking for drama, then this week almost certainly did. An absolutely thriller between Green Bay and Arizona had viewers on the edge of their seats, and a near 31-point comeback by Seattle had many ready to melt down.

Former Florida State players did not have the best outings this weekend however. Injuries and other factors meant that some contributors were largely limited. There were still a couple of notable performances however, and they are recorded below.

As a side note, keep in mind that stats cannot tell a reader everything. For example, center Bryan Stork of the Patriots will naturally not have a flashy stat line. Accumulating stats is not the tell-all for a player (especially at certain positions).
