How did Cincinnati Bearcats alums in the NFL perform during week 2?
Travis Kelce, Chiefs TE - After not finding the endzone in week 1 (3 catches, 40 yards), Kelce led the Chiefs with 7 catches for 107 yards and one touchdown.
More importantly, after the game Kelce had some thoughts on the Raiders crowd and his final trip to Oakland, but shared his thoughts in an outstanding hat...
Chris Moore, Ravens WR - for the second week in a row, Moore was shut out and had zero catches or targets. Despite playing in a high octane passing offense now, QB Lamar Jackson threw 37 times, Moore finds himself at the bottom of Baltimore’s depth chart. He was on the field for just 7 snaps total.
Mike Boone, Vikings RB - Boone had zero carries for a second straight week and veteran RB Ameer Abduallah once again served as the Vikings #3 RB. Addullah had one carry for 2 years, but it’s not a great sign that he can’t see the field. He didn’t play a single offensive snap, just one special teams play.
Jason Kelce, Eagles C - Kelce managed to play all 81 snaps for the Eagles on Sunday night. This should not be overlooked, given that virtually every single Eagles player suffered some type of injury in their loss to the Falcons.
Justin Murray, Cardinals RT - As expected, Murray saw significant increase in action during week 2 due to injuries along the Cardinals OL. He played 60/64 snaps, but did allow one sack and committed a penalty
Korey Cunningham, Patriots OT - Cunningham also saw an increase in playing time after Isaiah Wynn went down with an injury for the Patriots. Even before that, New England was dealing with injuries and Cunningham, who was acquired from Arizona right before the season, was expected to see more snaps. He was on the field for 60/68 snaps.
Derek Wolfe, Broncos DT - the vet contributed on 6 tackles, 4 solo and had one tackle for a loss in the Broncos loss to the Bears. It’s been a slow start for Wolfe, who has no sacks and very few QB hurries through two games on a bad Broncos defense.
He did have some thoughts about the lack of sacks...
Derek Wolfe is never one to mince words - he chose a few strong ones when addressing why the #Broncos have zero (0) sacks through two games.— Nick Rothschild (@nick_rothschild) September 16, 2019
Good news for Week 3: #Packers QB Aaron Rodgers tends to hold onto the ball a bit longer (too long if you ask my father) #Denver7 pic.twitter.com/xCdPbCEzzr
Eric Wilson, Vikings LB - playing as a rotational backup and mostly special teams, he had just 3 tackles in the team’s loss to the Packers
Cortez Broughton, Chargers DT - the rookie seventh round draft pick was inactive for the second straight week. It will likely take an injury to have Broughton see the field.
Kevin Huber, Bengals P - Huber punted 5 times in the Bengals loss, averaging 45 yards per punt. His longest was a 50 yarder and pinned 49ers inside the 20 one time.
Two former Bearcats signed contracts this week.
OT Parker Ehinger signed with the Ravens. And former OL Dino Boyd joined the Bengals practice squad.
