I know we’re a few weeks into the 2020 season and I haven’t posted one of these yet, but I’m going to try to bring it back now that we’re back to games and I’m not still doing the season countdown.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady completed 33/45 passes for 369 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. Brady has now thrown the most touchdown passes in NFL history, surpassing Drew Brees.

Last Monday I posted the top performers under Jim Harbaugh on Michigan’s offense (LINK).

DEFENSIVE END: 2016 Taco Charlton
Charlton’s performance in 2016 is underrated by some, even though it resulted in the highest sack total since Brandon Graham matched it with 10.0 in 2008. Charlton finished the season with 43 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, 2 pass breakups, and 8 quarterback hurries. He was taken in the 1st round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
