Bearcats in the NFL: Week Six

It was a quiet week from the Bearcats playing in the pros.

The Cincinnati Bearcats don’t just play football on Saturdays (and select Thursday and Fridays). A number of former Bearcats are now making their living in the National Football League. Here’s what those select few got up to in week six.

Ricardo Mathews, Pittsburgh Steelers

Mathews played 31 snaps (44 percent) of the Steelers’ snaps on defense and also chipped in on special team (eight snaps, 31 percent). However, he did not record any tackles or sacks.

Kevin Huber, Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals’ punter had more than few chances to show off his stuff as the Bengals were the second victims of the Tom Brady revenge tour. Huber had four punts in the game and averaged 41 yards per kick, including a long of 52.

Chris Moore, Baltimore Ravens

Although he did not record a reception, Moore returned a kick 26 yards in a game that featured just one kickoff return. It was Moore’s first career kickoff return. He has played in five games and has four receptions for 30 yards total on nine targets.

Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

With Spencer Ware and Jamaal Charles running all over Oakland, the Kansas City passing game didn’t need to blow up. That didn’t lead to a big day for Kelce, who caught all three of his targets and turned them into 32 yards. The 6’5” tight end has 252 yards and two touchdowns on 25 catches this season.

Parker Ehinger, Kansas City Chiefs

Ehinger played in 64 offensive snaps for the Chiefs in their 26-10 win over the Oakland Raiders.

Derek Wolfe, Denver Broncos

Wolfe plays on that fearsome Denver defense, but that defense couldn’t slow down the San Diego Chargers enough on Thursday. Wolfe recorded three combined tackles in the loss. He has seven total tackles and 4.5 sacks this year.

Connor Barwin, Philadelphia Eagles

Off the edge, Barwin recorded four tackles, and combined on a stop for a loss. For the season Barwin has nine combined tackles and a sack.
