Five classes, identical as all the time. Offensive participant of the week, defensive participant of the week, rookie of the week, trainer of the week, and play of the week.
Each one, in conjunction with finalists, is spelled out underneath.
Offensive participant of the week: Saints tight finish Taysom Hill.
In a 39-32 win over the Seahawks, Hill racked up 112 dashing yards and 3 touchdowns. He additionally had a 22-yard landing cross, on one strive.
The one-time quarterback who’s now a good finish hardly will get used the way in which he will have to be. On Sunday he used to be. And perhaps that’s the important thing to getting probably the most out of the New Orleans offense.
Time will inform whether or not it continues. On Sunday, the Saints used Hill to his complete extent, and he delivered like by no means prior to.
Other finalists: Chiefs tight finish Travis Kelce (seven catches, 25 receiving yards, 4 touchdowns), Bill receiver Gabe Davis (171 receiving yards, two touchdowns), Bills quarterback Josh Allen (424 passing yards, 4 touchdowns), Vikings receiver (*5*)Justin Jefferson (12 catches, 154 yards), Raiders operating again Josh Jacobs (193 yards from scrimmage, one landing), Browns operating again Nick Chubb (134 dashing yards, two touchdowns), Commanders receiver Dyami Brown (two catches, 105 yards, two touchdowns).
Defensive participant of the week: Colts cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
During a Thursday night time stinker in Denver, Gilmore made key defensive performs each overdue in legislation (with an end-zone interception) and in time beyond regulation (breaking apart the fourth-and-goal cross strive) to ship victory.
After the win, Gilmore had pointed feedback for Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson.
“They tried me like two times in a row, the play before,” Gilmore stated. “I knew he was going to come back, and I had to make him pay. He kept trying me, so I made him pay.”
The Colts are indubitably satisfied they paid Gilmore, an offseason unfastened agent who will have signed with any workforce.
Other finalists: Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons (two sacks), 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Mosley (pick out six), Vikings cornerback Cameron Dantzler (game-winning fumble restoration), Rams defensive take on Aaron Donald (two sacks).
Rookie of the week: Jets operating again Breece Hall.
The Jets tailback had 197 yards from scrimmage, with 97 dashing and 100 receiving, in a 40-17 win over the Dolphins. He additionally scored a landing.
It used to be a breakout recreation for the second-round tailback, who has 275 dashing yards, 213 receiving yards, and 3 general touchdowns for the season.

Coach of the week: Patriots trainer Bill Belichick.
The Lions were the best possible scoring workforce within the league thru 4 weeks. And the Patriots saved them from including a unmarried level to that general.
In a league premised on offense, the Patriots pitched a shutout. The recreation served as a reminder that, for the Patriots, the primary 4 video games of the common season are generally an extension of the preseason. Now, the Patriots could also be able to make a run.
Other finalists: Giants trainer Brian Daboll, Jets trainer Robert Saleh, Ravens trainer John Harbaugh, Bills trainer Sean McDermott, Cowboys trainer Mike McCarthy.
Play of the week: Broncos failed fourth and one play in time beyond regulation.
No play generated extra dialogue in Week Five, although the end result used to be unhealthy — for one workforce. Eschewing the run, and even promoting the potential for it, Broncos trainer Nathaniel Hackett dialed up a cross with the sport at the line. He didn’t see, or didn’t attempt to see, wide-open receiver Ok.J. Hamler. He threw it towards receiver Courtland Sutton, and Colts cornerback Stephen Gilmore used to be there to damage it up.
The information that Wilson went to L.A. tomorrow for remedy on his shoulder harm arguably excuses a lackluster efficiency by way of Wilson that night time. It additionally deserves extra questions on why Hackett would assume it used to be the best choice to place the ball in Wilson’s fingers if his shoulder used to be certainly now not proper.
Other finalists: One-handed landing catch by way of Bills receiver Gabe Davis, 98-yard catch and run by way of Bills receiver Gabe Davis, one-handed catch by way of Bears receiver Darnell Mooney, Saints tight finish Taysom Hill’s 60-yard landing run, Vikings cornerback Cam Dantzler ripping ball from Bears receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette to seal a victory.
