Bearcats in the NFL: Week 17

It was a quiet final week for former Bearcats.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce finished his exceptional regular season with a quiet outing against the San Diego Chargers. He had just one catch for eight yards but heads to the postseason with 85 receptions (117 targets) for 1,125 yards and four scores to his name in 2016. Kelce will be off until Jan. 15 as the Chiefs earned a first-round bye in the NFL Playoffs.

Derek Wolfe, DL, Denver Broncos

The defending Super Bowl champion Broncos will not be playing in the postseason. That means Wolfe’s last game of the year was the 33-10 loss Denver suffered against Kansas City on Christmas Day since he was held out of the regular season finale against Oakland.

Connor Barwin, DL, Philadelphia Eagles

Barwin recorded his fifth sack of the season in the Eagles’ 27-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys, a solid end to his eighth season in the NFL. Barwin is stilled signed through 2018 with Philadelphia, but his future is less than certain.

Jason Kelce, OL, Philadelphia Eagles

Kelce played on 100 percent of Philadelphia’s offensive snaps during the win over Dallas. Like teammate Barwin and Wolfe, Kelce will not be playing in the postseason.

Trent Cole, LB, Indianapolis Colts

Cole finished with two assisted tackles in the Colts’ 24-20 win over Jacksonville. However, he is still hearing flack about his hit on Derek Carr from the prior week and also made some noise about Chip Kelly, who coached Cole in Philadelphia.

Ricardo Matthews, DL, Pittsburgh Steelers

With the Steelers in the playoffs, Matthews has a chance for postseason play, but an injury may steal that chance from him. He left Sunday’s game with an ankle injury and remains questionable for this weekend’s Wild Card matchup with the Miami Dolphins.

Chris Moore, WR, Baltimore Ravens

For the third-straight week, Moore did not get a single target, although he did play on 25 percent of the Ravens offensive snaps. He continued to be a mainstay on special teams, however, playing on 60 percent of snaps.

Kevin Huber, P, Cincinnati Bengals

Huber was busy once again even in a 27-10 win for the Bengals. He punted five times for an average of 49.4 yards, which included a long of 63 yards and one kick inside the 20.

Johnny Holton, WR, Oakland Raiders

Holton was targeted once on Sunday while playing on 15 percent of offensive snaps. He also played on less than 20 percent of special teams snaps. However, he and the hobbled Raiders are postseason bound and will play the Houston Texans on Saturday.

Mike Windt, LS, San Diego Chargers

Windt was in on 21 percent of San Diego’s special teams snaps, but he will not be doing any more long snapping this year as the Chargers missed out on the playoffs.
