‘Noles in the NFL: week 10

Your weekly roundup of every former Seminole in the NFL.

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Falcons

Devonta Freeman: (Injured Reserve)

Buffalo Bills (41-10 win over New York Jets)

WR Kelvin Benjamin: in one of the most surprising games of the week, the Matt Barkley led Bills dropped 41 points on the Jets defense. Perhaps more surprising was Benjamin not recording a catch in Sunday’s action.

Carolina Panthers (52-21 loss to Pittsburgh)

K Graham Gano: Gano’s team was blown out on Thursday night, but he was perfect when called upon for three extra points.

Chicago Bears (34-22 win over Detroit)

NT Eddie Goldman: recorded four tackles (three solo) and a TFL against the Lions.

Cincinnati Bengals (51-14 loss to New Orleans)

OT Bobby Hart: The Saints are deep along the defensive line and the Bengals offensiveline struggled today. Andy Dalton was sacked four times and hit an additional seven times in Cinci’s loss.

WR Auden Tate: was promoted to the Bengals active roster this week while A.J. Green is hurt. He played in his first NFL game on Sunday but was unable to record a catch on his sole target.

WR Kermit Whitfield (practice squad)

Denver Broncos

DE Demarcus Walker: BYE

S Trey Marshall (practice squad)

Detroit Lions (34-22 loss to Chicago)

LB Christian Jones: recorded five solo tackles and a TFL.

Houston Texans

OT Roderick Johnson (practice squad)

Jacksonville Jaguars (29-26 loss to Indianapolis)

CB Jalen Ramsey: It was a rough day for the Jacksonville secondary as Andrew Luck tossed three touchdowns. Ramsey recorded five solo tackles on the day, and for a man corner like Ramsey, solo tackle statistics aren’t always something you want to see because it often means the corner was beat on a route.

Ramsey is a trash-talker. It’s part of what makes him great. He’s even said that what he says motivates him to back it up on the field. Ramsey made headlines in this year when he commented on the ability of quarterbacks around the league in an article for GQ. In that article, Ramsey said of Andrew Luck: “Don’t really think he’s that good.” Unfortunately for Ramsey, Luck was very good on Sunday.

LB Telvin Smith: led the team in tackles with eight (six solo) and a pass defended. Smith also nabbed an interception.

WR Rashad Greene: recorded one catch for 11 yards. The catch came on Jacksonville’s final drive as they were attempting a comeback. Following the catch Greene definitely didn’t fumble and it definitely wasn’t recovered by the Colts. My heart did not break for Greene as he hung his head on the sideline while saying “I was down.” Let’s just move on.

Kansas City Chiefs (26-14 win over Arizona)

OT Cam Erving: It was a bit of a sluggish game for the Chiefs. They kept the game in hand and were never really in danger of losing, but it was definitely one of the worst games Kansas City has played this year. The offensive line struggled to protect Patrick Mahomes as he was sacked five times and hit seven times by the Arizona defense. But, if KC can play their worst game of the year and still win by 12, I think they’ll be alright moving forward.

DT Derrick Nnadi: recorded one solo tackle

LB Terrance Smith:(Injured Reserve)

Los Angeles Chargers (20-6 win over Oakland)

S Derwin James: Does your NFL team need help getting to the quarterback? Did your team draft in the top 16 and pass on Derwin James? *cough* Tampa Bay *cough*

James was all over the field again this week recording nine tackles (five solo) and a pass defended.

Los Angeles Rams (36-31 win over Seattle)

S Lamarcus Joyner: recorded seven tackles (four solo) in what was probably the most exciting game on Sunday.

Minnesota Vikings

CB Xavier Rhodes: BYE

RB Dalvin Cook: BYE

Miami Dolphins (31-12 loss to Green Bay)

TE Nick O’Leary: caught his lone target for five yards.

New England Patriots

TE Ryan Izzo: (Injured Reserve)

New Orleans Saints (51-14 win over Cincinnati)

CB P.J. Williams: recorded one solo tackle

CB Patrick Robinson: (Injured Reserve)

OT Rick Leonard (practice squad)

New York Giants

DE Mario Edwards Jr.: (plays Monday night)

New York Jets (41-10 loss to Buffalo)

S Terrance Brooks: didn’t record any stats on a day to forget for the Jets’ defense.

Oakland Raiders (20-6 loss to Los Angeles Chargers)

C Rodney Hudson: different week, same story: Hudson is a great player on a very bad team.

Philadelphia Eagles (27-20 loss to Dallas)

DB Ronald Darby: recorded five tackles (three solo).

LB Nigel Bradham: led the team with 10 tackles (eight solo).

DE Josh Sweat: Inactive

DT Timmy Jernigan: returned to practice for the Eagles this week. He has not moved to the active roster, but his return is a good sign for Philadelphia. They have a 21 day period to either activate him to the active roster, or he will be shutdown for the remainder of the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers (52-21 win over Carolina)

LB Vince Williams: Vince. Six. Under the Thursday night lights, Vince Williams picked off Cam Newton for the second interception of his career and returned it for a touchdown. The score was just the beginning of a dominant night for the veteran. Williams would add four tackles (three solo), a sack, a TFL, and a pass defended to his statline in his team’s dominant win.

LB Matthew Thomas: recorded one tackle.

San Francisco 49ers

LB Dekoda Watson: (plays Monday night)

Seattle Seahawks

K Sebastian Janikowski: was perfect on the day. He hit a 33-yard field goal and all four of his extra points.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This doesn’t have anything to do with any former FSU players that suited up for Tampa on Sunday, but it was a record breaking day for the Buccaneers:

QB Jameis Winston: remained on the sideline this week after being benched for veteran journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick last week. With the Buccaneers struggles this week, Winston could be back on the field sooner rather than later.

DB Javien Elliot: recorded two solo tackles and a TFL.

LS Garrison Sanborn: handled long snapping duties.

WR Bobo Wilson (practice squad)

Washington Redskins

RB Chris Thompson: was ruled out as he continues to battle injury.

K Dustin Hopkins: continued his stellar season with another perfect outing. The real D-Hop was a perfect 3/3 on field goals with a long of 43-yards and 1/1 on extra points.
