The second-year back carried the ball 12 times for 55 yards, including a 25-yard rush. Collins has three 20-yard rushes in the last two games, including breaking off a 50-yard gain last week. Rushing for 261 yards in four games this season, Collins has more than doubled his 11-game rushing total in 2016 of 125 rushing yards with the Seahawks.
The sure-handed tight end brought in three receptions for 42 yards and one touchdown in Week 5.

Eight of Henry’s 12 receptions this season have resulted in a first down or touchdown, including four of the last five. Henry has also pulled in eight receptions of 10 or more yards and four of 15 or more.
