Best players from Week 5 in the NFL: Jalen Hurts, Micah Parsons…

The Philadelphia Eagles remain the only undefeated team in the league after Week 5 and a lot of that has to do with quarterback Jalen Hurts.


Week 5 of the NFL brought with it more talks on changes to the roughing the passer penalty and the concussion discussion, the first head coach firing of the season, and the Eagles remained the only team in the league to be undefeated. Let’s take a look at the best players of the week from Week 5 in the NFL.

Quarterback - Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

In Sunday’s 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals, Hurts completed 26 of 36 passes for 239 yards, rushing for a game-high 61 yards and two rushing touchdowns. Hurts is now tied for second all-time for games with multiple rushing touchdowns (7) by a quarterback.

Running back - Breece Hall, New York Jets

Rookie Breece Hall had 197 yards from scrimmage (100 receiving, 97 rushing) and a rushing touchdown in the Jets’ 40-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. In the first half, he had a huge play on a pass QB Zach Wilson, he took off down the field for 79 yards, dragging the Dolphins defense by his feet and making it to the 1-yard line. That led to a Michael Carter touchdown just after.

Wide receiver - Gabe Davis, Buffalo Bills

Davis’ 98-yard touchdown just 64 seconds into the first quarter was the longest scrimmage touchdown within the first 90 seconds in NFL history. After being out for Week 2 with an ankle injury and then playing slow for the next few weeks with just eight receptions for 138 yards, this was a breakout game for Davis. Against the Steelers, he had 160 yards JUST in the first half, had the 98-yard touchdown plus another for 62 and an average of 80 yards per catch. He’s back, baby.

Tight end - Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

In the Chiefs’ 30-29 win over the Las Vegas Raiders, Kelce caught seven passes for 25 yards and four touchdowns, making him the first player in NFL history to have four touchdown catches of less than 10 yards in the same game. He also tied the Chiefs’ record for most receiving touchdowns in a game and finished with the second-most touchdown catches by a tight end in a single game in NFL history.

Kicker - Nick Folk, New England Patriots

In the Patriots win over the Lions, Pats kicker Nick Folk didn’t miss a single kick, scoring 17 of their 29 total points. He has now kicked 63 consecutive field goals of less than 50 yards. The last time he missed a field goal of less than 50 was in Week 1 of the 2020 season, which set an NFL record.

Defensive player - Micah Parsons, LB, Dallas Cowboys

In the Cowboys’ win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Parsons recorded nine quarterback pressures, five tackles (one for a loss), three quarterback hits, two sacks, and a forced fumble. He’s now tied for first in the league for total sacks on the season (6). He finished off the 22-10 victory when he stopped the Rams from getting a late touchdown by getting underneath Rob Havenstein to make it to Matthew Stafford and knock him down and the ball loose.
