Tyrod Taylor is Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of Week 5

Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor earned Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week honors for his standout performance against the Tennessee Titans. Taylor threw a touchdown pass and caught a pass in the 14-13 Buffalo win. Taylor captured 26 percent of the votes to finish ahead of Atlanta Falcons cornerback Robert Alford (23 percent). New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning (21), Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown (18) and Cincinnati Bengals kicker Mike Nugent (11).


Robert Alford, Atlanta Falcons

Alford's 59-yard interception-return touchdown in overtime lifted the Falcons past the Washington Redskins, 25-19, and kept Atlanta among the ranks of the NFL's undefeated teams. The Falcons became the first team to start 5-0 when trailing in the fourth quarter of four games.

Mike Nugent, Cincinnati Bengals

Nugent capped a 17-point rally with a game-tying 31-yard field goal as time expired in regulation, and then connected on a 42-yard field goal with 3:36 left in overtime to give the Bengals a 27-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Josh McCown, Cleveland Browns

McCown threw for a franchise record 457 yards, 32 of which came on the Browns' winning drive in overtime, to lead the Browns past the Baltimore Ravens, 33-30. McCown led the Browns back from a 12-point deficit and became the first quarterback in Browns history with three consecutive 300-yard passing games.

Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo Bills

Taylor ran for a touchdown, threw for a touchdown and caught a pass in Buffalo's come-from-behind 14-13 victory over the Tennessee Titans. Taylor's fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Chris Hogan capped the comeback.

Eli Manning, New York Giants

The final of Manning's career-best 41 completions went for the game-winner to tight end Larry Donnell with 21 seconds remaining to give the Giants a 30-27 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Manning's touchdown pass finished off an 82-yard drive that helped the Giants earn a third consecutive win.
