Christian Covington – DL, Chargers
Covington was on the Chargers’ practice squad during Week 1 but was signed to the active roster on Monday with the team waiving defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko to make room for Covington.
Jack Fox – P, Lions
Fox punted four times against the Eagles, but it was his (young) career marks that stood out the most. The Lions announced in a postgame media release that Fox now owns the highest gross (49.1) and net (43.4) punting averages through a player’s first 125 career punts in NFL history.

Chris Boswell – K, Steelers
Boswell converted three of four field goals and a pair of extra points on Sunday, but it was his final kick that fans will remember most. He drilled this 53-yarder in overtime to deliver the walk-off win.
