Curl opened his second season in the NFL by recording three tackles and one pass defensed in Washington’s 20-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. According to PFF, Curl was targeted four times and allowed just two completions for 22 yards while posting a game defensive grade of 74.2, the team’s fifth-best mark. Since entering the league last year as a seventh round pick, Curl has already played in 17 games and made 12 starts.

Flowers made his debut as an outside linebacker in Detroit’s new 3-4 defense and logged four tackles with a forced fumble as the Lions fell to San Francisco 41-33. He forced the 10th fumble of his career in the fourth quarter, stripping San Francisco WR Deebo Samuel. The seventh-year pro posted a Lions’ game-high 89.9 defensive game grade.
Dre Greenlaw, LB, San Francisco 49ers
Greenlaw gave the 49ers a lift, intercepting his second career pass and returning it for a touchdown in San Francisco’s 41-33 win at Detroit. Greenlaw picked off Lions QB Jared Goff in the second quarter and returned it 39 yards, giving San Francisco a 28-10 lead. In addition, the third-year pro tallied four tackles and one pass defensed.

He tallied two first down grabs of 16 and 6 yards in the fourth quarter leading to a New England field goal.
