Bearcats in the NFL - Week 5 Recap

It was a difficult week for many former Bearcats in the NFL during week 5.

How did Cincinnati Bearcats alums in the NFL perform during week 5?

Travis Kelce had a rough day, as did the whole Kansas City Chiefs team. Chiefs lost 19-13 to the Colts. Kelce saw a season-high 10 targets but caught just 4 passes (second fewest in 2019) and turned those into 70 yards (fewest of 2019). For the 4th time in 5 games, he did not catch a touchdown.

To make matters worse, Kelce was seen shoving his Offensive Coordinator on the sideline.

His brother Jason Kelce, the Eagles center, had the best week of any Bearcats alum in the NFL. And it has nothing to do with anything on the field from the Eagles win over the Jets. Jason’s wife Kylie to a beautiful daughter, Wyatt Elizabeth. Congrats to the Kelce family on the very exciting news!

The Bengals lost and fell to 0-5 but punter Kevin Huber continues to see extensive playing time. Huber punted 3 times on Sunday, averaging 49 yards per punt with a long of 63 yards.

  • Cardinals OL Justin Murray saw almost all of the snaps for Arizona at Right Tackle. Murray was acquired right before the season and due to injuries and poor play, he has filled in respectably for the Cardinals
  • Broncos DT Derek Wolfe made just one tackle in the Broncos first victory of the season, despite playing all 42 defensive snaps. Wolfe still has not yet recorded a sack in 2019.
  • Vikings RB Mike Boone played zero offensive snaps and LB Eric Wilson played 0 defensive snaps in a win against the Giants
  • Ravens WR Chris Moore played 20 offensive snaps and 18 special teams snaps, but saw zero targets
