Cole Kmet was outstanding.

Kmet did not have a touchdown for 28-straight games. He now has five in his last three games. He ended up with four catches for 74 yards along with his two scores.

Kmet and Fields have developed some real chemistry in the passing game. Kmet had just two targets and no catches through the first two games of the season. In his last two games, Kmet has been targeted 13 times and caught nine of them.

The offensive line has improved a tiny bit. Just enough to where it has allowed Kmet to run more routes and not be needed so much in pass protection.

Jack Sanborn had a great day.

Sanborn has been in the starting lineup the last two games after Roquan Smith was traded to Baltimore. The undrafted free-agent linebacker out of Wisconsin had a career day.

He has 12 tackles, two for a loss, and two sacks. He had an interception wiped out by a borderline penalty.

Sanborn had an outstanding preseason that allowed him to make the team as a special team player. He is now showing that he deserves to be more than a career special teamer.

Sanborn is not known for his great speed so it will be interesting to see if he can continue this production once offenses start adjusting to his game.
