How local NFL products fared in Week 13

Lynnwood native Myles Gaskin returns from injury and makes an impact in the Dolphins’ win.

Here’s how players from Snohomish County fared in Week 13 of the NFL season:

Myles Gaskin

— This week: The Lynnwood native, who attended O’Dea High School, returned with a bang after a four-game absence because of a sprained knee. Gaskin reclaimed his spot as the Miami Dolphins’ starting running back and was a difference-maker in the Dolphins’ 19-7 road victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, carrying the ball 22 times for 90 yards and catching two passes for 51 yards.

— Season: Gaskin is now up to a team-leading 477 rushing yards on 121 carries with two touchdowns, along with 32 receptions for 249 yards, as the 8-4 Dolphins make their push to reach the playoffs for just the third time since 2001.

Devante Downs

— This week: The Mountlake Terrace High School graduate and New York Giants linebacker was not in the starting lineup for the Giants’ 17-12 upset road victory over the Seattle Seahawks. He appeared on nine defensive snaps and 19 special teams plays, recording one solo tackle and one assisted tackle.

— Season: Downs, who has been in and out of the starting lineup (seven starts in 12 games), has 27 tackles (20 solo, seven assisted) with one pass defensed, one fumble recovered and one quarterback hit for the Giants, who despite being 5-7 are currently in playoff position by virtue of being tied for first in the NFC East.

Jake Luton

— This week: The Marysville Pilchuck High School graduate and Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback was forced to watch Jacksonville’s 27-24 overtime loss at Minnesota in street clothes as he was left inactive for the first time since Week 7. Mike Glennon remained the starter for the second straight week, while original starter Gardner Minshew II recovered enough from his thumb injury to serve as the backup.

— Season: Luton made three starts earlier in the season, going 60-for-110 for 624 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions, which equals a 54.3 quarterback rating. He also scored on a 13-yard touchdown run for the Jaguars, who at 1-11 are in contention for the first-overall draft pick, which presumably would be Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Jacob Eason

This week: The Lake Stevens High School graduate and Indianapolis Colts quarterback was inactive for the Colts’ 26-20 road victory against the Houston Texans.

— Season: Eason has yet to be active for a game this season, but with the Colts being 8-4 he has a good chance of seeing the playoffs in person.

KeiVarae Russell

— This week: The Mariner High School graduate and Green Bay Packers cornerback was not elevated from the practice squad for the Packers’ 30-16 home victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

— Season: Russell was elevated from the practice squad once this season, appearing on seven special teams plays without recording a stat for the 9-3 Packers, who hold a three-game lead in the NFC North.
