Bearcats in the NFL: Week 11

Despite the disappointing year for the Bearcats in the NCAA this year, Cincinnati alumni had their presence felt in the professional ranks in Week 11.

Kevin Huber, P, Cincinnati Bengals

When a punter has a big day like Huber did this past Sunday, it is never a good thing for a team. Huber was forced to punt six times averaging just under 45 yards with a long of 54 as the struggling Bengals went on to lose 16-12 against the Buffalo Bills.

Ricardo Matthews, DT, Pittsburgh Steelers

Matthews had arguably his best game of the season for the Steelers against a far inferior opponent in the Cleveland Browns. Matthew recorded two tackles and was a key contributor to stuffing the run lanes for the Browns offence.

Connor Barwin, DE, Philadelphia Eagles

Despite being questionable to play all week, Barwin suited up in one of the biggest games of the Eagles’ season against a very tough Seattle opponent. Despite a lack of statistics (three tackles) Barwin made his presence felt in a losing effort. The Eagles fell 26-15.

Jason Kelce, C, Philadelphia Eagles

Kelce and the rest of the Eagles offensive line were faced with an extremely tough task, going up against arguably the best defense in the NFL: the Seattle Seahawks. Despite having their run game held below 100-yards, Kelce and the Eagles provided rookie quarterback Carson Wentz with a lot of time to throw, as he was sacked only twice.

Brent Celek, TE, Philadelphia Eagles

Celek had one catch on 19 yards in the Eagles loss to the Seahawks. Celek has seven catches for 107 yards this season.

John Hughes III, DT, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Hughes was once again used sparingly against the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend, being held without a tackle. Hughes has had six tackles since being acquired from the Cleveland Browns.

Derek Wolfe, DE, Denver Broncos

This is more of an update seeing how the Broncos had a bye this past week. Wolfe has returned to practice and hopes to return to action this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs. Wolfe is suffering from a hairline fracture in his elbow.

Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce’s rollercoaster season continued this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fortunately for the Chiefs this was a great week for their Pro Bowl tight end. Kelce hauled in seven passes from Alex Smith totaling just over 100 yards (108). However, the Chiefs still fell short to the Bucs, losing by a score of 19-17.

Chris Moore, WR, Baltimore Ravens

Despite a somewhat productive few months the the NFL, Chris Moore was held without a catch once again this week. He has not caught a ball in November. He played on one offensive snap and saw the field 14 times as a special teamer in Baltimore’s 27-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Johnny Holton, WR, Oakland Raiders

Holton did not see any action in the Raiders thrilling come from behind victory in Mexico City against the Houston Texans.
