It was a good weekend for the Pro Frogs, with three players locking up Division Titles and one seeing their team make themselves a favorite to play for the AFC title next month.
Jason Verrett, CB, San Francisco 49ers
Rough week for the Niners, who lost to the suddenly red-hot team from Washington Sunday. JV had a good afternoon though, hauling in an interception in addition to one tackle and one PBU as Washington mostly tried to avoid him.
Though Alex Smith is likely to win comeback player of the year, it’s hard to argue — based off of pure performance — that Verrett doesn’t deserve it more:

Ben Banogu, DE, Indianapolis Colts
Inactive for the sixth straight game.
Joey Hunt, C, Indianapolis Colts
Hunt finally got in a game for the Colts, taking 10 offensive snaps in a win over the Raiders. He filled in at left guard due to an injury along the offensive line.
Ross Blacklock, DT, Houston Texans
Blacklock’s playing time continues to fluctuate in his rookie season, as he played just 20 total snaps Sunday (13 on defense) in a loss at Chicago. But, with the Texans down two more DTs (for the season), it could be Big Ross’ time to shine.
L.J. Collier, DE, Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks murdered the Jets (lol surprise). LJ didn’t get a lot of run in the blowout, but recorded a tackle and a pass defense.
Andy Dalton, QB, Dallas Cowboys
What a moment for Andy Dalton, who returned to Cincinnati and busted up the Bengals. The Cowboys beat Cincy 30-7, with Dalton throwing for 185 yards and two touchdowns in the victory.
He also shared this special moment with his wife, Jordan, sending up the “I love you” signal to her at the end.
Sewo Olonilua, RB, Dallas Cowboys
Jeff Gladney, CB, Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings lost to Tampa Bay Sunday, with Gladney accounting for five tackles on the day. He got absolutely robbed of a pick, too:

Jerry Hughes, DE, Buffalo Bills
Another big win for the first place Buffalo Bills, another nice day for Jerry Hughes. The veteran had a tackle against the Steelers and should have scored a TD on this play:
Hughes is currently the 17th ranked DE by PFF and seems to have an impact in one or the other on every snap. He’s just 1.5 sacks away from moving into fourth all time for the franchise sack record, and is doing great work off the field, too:
"We understand some of the struggles people who look like us are going through." @Iam_jerryhughes and @BuffaloBills players formed a social justice committee to give opportunity to those who need it most. #InspireChange @kimmichex pic.twitter.com/n5rtrCXi9M— NFL (@NFL) December 7, 2020
Joe Noteboom, OL, Los Angeles Rams
The Rams whooped New England with Noteboom continuing to play well on the offensive line.
Matt Pryor, OG/OT, Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles looked a hell of a lot better with Jalen Hurts taking snaps, upsetting the Saints in the process. Pryor was relegated to special teams in the win, the second consecutive game that he has been benched on offense. But, with yet another injury on the o-line for Philly, he could be pressed back into duty.
Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
Reag is starting to turn in on as he gets back to 100% health — and with better QB play. On Sunday, he hauled in two catches on four targets for 46 yards, including this beautiful catch and run:
Watch Jalen Reagor closely. He high fives Travis Fulgham before catching this pass. pic.twitter.com/7iJ7DFdyZX— Patrick (@GoBirdsGoSixers) December 14, 2020
He also ran the ball once for 19 yards.
Austin Schlottmann, OG/C, Denver Broncos
Schlottmann played just two offensive snaps in the Broncos win over Carolina on the road.
Vernon Scott, S, Green Bay Packers
Scott got a solid 16 snaps Sunday as the Pack clinched the NFC North, recording a tackle. He was their highest graded defensive player in limited action, and gave fans lots of hope for his future development.

Ty Summers, LB, Green Bay Packers
Summers played on special teams for Green Bay Sunday but did not record a stat.
Halapoulivaati Vaitai, OT, Detroit Lions
Marshall Newhouse, OT, Tennessee Titans
Newhouse made his season debut for the Titans, earning ten snaps Sunday.
