Scary Terry leads Washington to its first win
The only thing scarier than rookie Terry McLaurin's reign of terror on NFL defensive backs was Washington winless record, but the McLaurin was able to change that in week six.
The rookie caught four passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns in the Redskins' 17-16 win over the Dolphins. It was just another promising performance for the former Buckeye.

The best part is, this was Part II. He found the end zone earlier, too. pic.twitter.com/ttthUPujeH— Eleven Warriors (@11W) October 13, 2019
So far McLaurin has hulled in 23 passes for 408 yards and five touchdowns this season. If he keeps it up he could be a candidate for rookie of the year. At the very least, he's already Washington's top weapon and has himself a pretty notorious fan.

Carlos powers the Texans to an upset win
Few gave Houston a chance against the mighty Chiefs in Arrowhead this week, but they failed to consider Carlos Hyde.
Guapo's day got off to a rough start with a fumble on the first play from scrimmage:

But it was all uphill from there:

He finished with 116 yards on 26 carries and a touchdown. Once again proving that Patrick Mahomes can only do so much when he defense is getting thrashed.
Curtis Samuel dominates in London
Our allies across the pond found out something we Americans have known for sometime: that Curtis Samuel chap can play some ball.
Samuel came up huge for Carolina in the Panthers' 37-26 win over Tampa Bay in London, hauling in four catches for 70 yards and a touchdown.

People forget, Curt came in to Ohio State as a running back, and showed off that portion of his skillset as well by running in a touchdown from eight-yards-out to give him two total scores on the day.
John Simon can catch
Gotta show some love for the defense, right?
The Patriots have been led by its stout defense this season, and while Simon may not be one of the unit's biggest stars but he made himself known with the interception against the Giants on Thursday Night Football.

Simon's got some solid hands! Maybe they should give him some love at tight end like they used to do for Mike Vrabel back in the day.
Bad break for Bradley Roby
Sunday was supposed to be Tyreek Hill's return party, but Bradley Roby had him on lockdown – until he left with an injury.
Texans CB Bradley Roby, who was having a real solid day, suffered a hamstring injury that knocked him out of the game. He will have an MRI tomorrow to see the extent of the injury. Houston was already playing without Johnathan Joseph who was out with a grade 1 hamstring strain.— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) October 13, 2019
#Texans starting CB Bradley Roby is dealing with a hamstring injury from Sunday that is considered significant, sources say. Hes likely to miss about a month, though there is a bye during Week 10 that helps.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 14, 2019
Rest up, Roby.
