How did Cincinnati Bearcats alums in the NFL perform during week 4?
Travis Kelce, once again, made a big impact for the Chiefs, despite not scoring a touchdown (no one on the Chiefs caught a TD in week 4). Kelce led the team in catches (7) and receiving yards (85).
He made an incredible decision in the fourth quarter - Kelce had enough yards for a first down but saw RB Lesean McCoy trailing him and tossed it backwards, allowing the Chiefs to pick up another 20 yards

Jason Kelce continued to flash his dominance for the Eagles. Philly won in Green Bay, and the Offensive Line was a huge part of the win. RB Jordan Howard ran for 3 TDs and Carson Wentz stayed upright most of the night. Kelce is the anchor of the Eagles OL. He’s also, arguably, the most athletic center in the league, as evidenced here.
Jason Kelce (62) is such a special talent. It’s borderline unfair for a center to move like this at the 3rd level. pic.twitter.com/m7k73RRutn— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) September 27, 2019
Ravens WR Chris Moore had a rough game. He should have caught a long completion and picked up another 10 yards after the catch, but he had his football on the out of bounds marker when he caught the ball. That was Moore’s only target of the game.
This play should have gained at least 26 yards for Chris Moore, but his feet land out of bounds as he catches the ball. This is an example of a failed reception where the receiver doesn't physically drop the ball: pic.twitter.com/vfI3wn3Q1u— No Checkdowns (@NoCheckdowns) September 30, 2019
The rest of the Bearcats
- Derek Wolfe played 48 out of 50 snaps for the 0-4 Broncos, and did not make a major impact or have any stand out plays. Wolfe is sack-less for the 2019 season and has just 12 tackles.
- Justin Murray didn’t start for the Cardinals, but did play 41 snaps in a loss
- Mike Boone (Vikings RB) did not play an offensive snap for the Vikings. Minnesota, as a team, ran for 40 yards. Backup RB Alexander Mattison only had 2 carries, leaving no room for Boone to play, in a game where the Vikings often threw the ball.
- One week after recording two sacks for the Vikings, LB Eric Wilson was limited to strictly special teams. He did not see the field on defense.
- The Bengals stink, which means more action for punter Kevin Huber. Huber punted 5 times on Monday night, with his longest going 59 yards. He averaged 41 yards per punt and did pin one inside the 20.
- Patriots OT Korey Cunningham was inactive for the second straight week
- Chargers rookie DT Cortez Broughton was inactive for the 4th straight week
- DB Linden Stephens signed with the Seahawks, to their practice squad
