2. Jalen Tolbert

Thrust into a bigger role after Brandin Cooks was ruled out with a knee injury, Tolbert caught three of four targets for 18 yards. Like Dowdle, though, Tolbert's numbers don't encapsulate his impact, as he picked up multiple first downs.

The second-year WR also drew a massive penalty in man coverage on 3rd and goal from the 13-yard line before Schoonmaker's clutch touchdown.

It came on a poor pass from Prescott, but Tolbert shook his defender loose, forced the infraction and gave the refs no other choice but to throw the flag, as much as they likely didn't want to in such a big moment. That's one of the plays of the game that will get lost in the archives.

Tolbert deserves more WR snaps even when Cooks is back.
