Andrew Sendejo – S, Colts
Sendejo finished second on the team with seven tackles in the Colts’ Week 10 victory over the Jaguars. That ties a season-high.
Jack Fox – P, Lions
Two former Rice football special teamers squared off in Week 10. Fox punted 10 times with a long of 61 yards. That’s the most punts Fox has kicked in a single game in his NFL career, smashing a previous high of eight punts set on Dec. 26 against Tampa Bay last season.
Chris Boswell – K, Steelers
Boswell built off a strong previous week, knocking through three field goals and one extra point. He contributed to 10 of the team’s 16 points by himself.
