Date Player
8/30/2015 Kirk Cousins, Was, QB
Cousins completed 20 of 27 passes for 190 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 31-13 preseason win over Baltimore.

Analysis: Cousins filled in for the injured Robert Griffin III (concussion), and coach Jay Gruden said, "Right now, I'm going to evaluate the game, go from there and find out how Robert is doing. I'm not going to announce anything. There's no controversy."
8/30/2015 Vincent Jackson, TB, WR
Jackson caught two passes for 38 yards during Saturday's 31-7 preseason loss to Cleveland.

Analysis: He was targeted five times, and his biggest gain was a 26-yard catch from Jameis Winston that set up Doug Martin's 19-yard touchdown run.
8/30/2015 Jameis Winston, TB, QB
Winston completed 6 of 15 passes with an interception in Saturday's 31-7 preseason loss to Cleveland.

Analysis: Winston, playing without top receiver Mike Evans (hamstring), exited the game after one series in the third quarter. His longest completion, 26 yards to Vincent Jackson, led to Doug Martin's 19-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
8/30/2015 Terrance West, Cle, RB
Terrance West rushed for 26 yards on seven carries in Saturday's 31-7 preseason win over Tampa Bay.

Analysis: West had a strong second preseason game with 47 rushing yards but was still the Brown's third running back on Saturday behind Duke Johnson - who suffered a concussion - and Isaiah Crowell. He did receive most of the goal-line work on the team's opening drive.
8/30/2015 Isaiah Crowell, Cle, RB
Crowell ran for 27 yards on eight attempts in Saturday's 31-7 preseason win over Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Crowell was the team's No. 2 back behind Duke Johnson - who suffered a concussion in the game - but he received plenty of work on his team's opening series. He now has 17 carries for 47 yards without a touchdown in the preseason.
8/30/2015 Josh McCown, Cle, QB
McCown completed 17 of 23 passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns without an interception in Saturday's 31-7 preseason win over Tampa Bay. He also ran for 20 yards on three attempts.

Analysis: Facing the team that released him to clear the way to select Jameis Winston No. 1 overall in this year's draft, McCown capped off two long drives with touchdown passes of 3 yards to Brian Hartline and 7 yards to Gary Barnidge. McCown - who went 1-10 as a starter with Tampa Bay in 2014 - received the bulk of the Browns' QB workload Saturday with Johnny Manziel shut down for the remainder of the preseason because of a sore right elbow.
8/30/2015 Zac Stacy, NYJ, RB
Stacy had 13 carries for 60 yards while catching a 24-yard TD pass and running for a two-point conversion in the Jets' preseason meeting with the Giants.

Analysis: Stacy is trying to earn a spot on the Jets' roster and this performance may have been enough to do it.
8/30/2015 Odell Beckham Jr., NYG, WR
Beckham caught five passes for 31 yards in the Giants' preseason meeting with the Jets on Saturday.

Analysis: While Beckham was active before the starters were pulled, his longest catch went for eight yards. The Giants are having a tough time offensively but they have the personnel to be a high scoring unit.
8/30/2015 Myles White, GB, WR
White caught nine passes for 89 yards in Saturday's loss to Philadelphia.

Analysis: The problem is Aaron Rodgers didn't play. He watched the game in sweats from the sideline with three starting offensive linemen already held out because of injuries, so it's difficult to buy in too much just yet.
8/30/2015 Eli Manning, NYG, QB
Manning went 12 of 16 for 90 yards but tossed an interception that was returned for a touchdown by the Jets' Antonio Cromartie on Saturday.

Analysis: Manning's job isn't in danger but the Giants are having a tough time on offense.
8/30/2015 Aaron Rodgers, GB, QB
Rodgers, the NFL MVP, didn't play Saturday against Philadelphia.

Analysis: He watched the game in sweats from the sideline with three starting offensive linemen already held out because of injuries.
8/30/2015 Sam Bradford, Phi, QB
Shaking off rust, quarterback Sam Bradford was 10 of 10 for 121 yards and three touchdowns in his most extensive action in exhibition play, and the Eagles (3-0) stayed perfect in the preseason with a 39-26 win on Saturday night over the Packers.

Analysis: Acquired in the offseason from St. Louis, Bradford is coming back from tearing his ACL twice in a 10-month span while with the Rams. He kept coach Chip Kelly's offense humming against the Packers' first-team defense. Bradford led three drives before giving way to backup Mark Sanchez in the second quarter.
8/30/2015 Ryan Fitzpatrick, NYJ, QB
Fitzpatrick turned in his best preseason performance for the Jets in Saturday's meeting with the Giants.

Analysis: After struggling in place of the injured Geno Smith in the first two preseason games, Fitzpatrick hit 9 of 14 passes for 127 yards. He threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Eric Decker and added a 24-yarder on a screen pass to Zac Stacy as the Jets (2-1) showed balance on offense.
8/30/2015 Matt Forte, Chi, RB
Forte carried six times for 16 yards in Saturday's loss to Cincinnati.

Analysis: The Bears' running game managed only 67 yards on 18 carries, an average of 3.7 yards.
8/30/2015 Jay Cutler, Chi, QB
Cutler was 13 of 17 for 98 yards without an interception before he was replaced by Jimmy Clausen Saturday in a loss to Cincinnati. Cutler played the first half and one series in the second half, leading Chicago to a field goal.

Analysis: The starting offense got six first downs and 123 yards on 29 plays. "We've got a lot of stuff we've got to get cleaned up," Cutler said.
8/30/2015 AJ McCarron, Cin, QB
Andy Dalton's sore neck gave McCarron a chance for his first NFL keepsake. McCarron was impressive during his first stint with the starting offense. He completed his first seven passes, including a 31-yard throw to Marvin Jones for his first professional TD pass. He kept the ball, cradling it under his left arm as he jogged off the field.

Analysis: McCarron was a fifth-round pick out of Alabama last year, but missed his rookie season with a sore passing shoulder. He won the backup job after the second preseason game, and gave the Bengals a sense of confidence that he can keep the offense going if Dalton gets hurt.
8/30/2015 Tyrod Taylor, Buf, QB
Taylor went 12 of 13 for 122 yards and a touchdown on a 20-yard run in the Bills' preseason meeting with Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Analysis: Taylor is competing with EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel for the starting job, and coach Rex Ryan said a decision is coming soon.
8/30/2015 Martavis Bryant, Pit, WR
Bryant caught three passes for 138 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' preseason meeting with Buffalo on Saturday.

Analysis: Bryant hauled in a 63-yard pass on Michael Vick's first play from scrimmage. He should be an active part of the Steelers' offense once the regular season starts.
8/30/2015 Tony Romo, Dal, QB
Romo went 5 for 8 with two touchdown passes in Saturday's preseason game against Minnesota.

Analysis: Romo played one series in the first two preseason games.
8/30/2015 Ben Roethlisberger, Pit, QB
Roethlisberger went 2 for 4 for 30 yards in the Steelers' preseason game against Buffalo on Saturday.

Analysis: Roethlisberger was pulled early as Michael Vick got extensive playing time as he tries to prove he's worthy of backing up Big Ben.
