Buckeyes in the NFL – Week 2


Justin Fields, Terry McLaurin, Bradley Roby and Nick Bosa made an impact in Week Two of the NFL season.

Fields vs. Burrow

Two former Buckeyes faced each other at Soldier Field on Sunday after Chicago Bears starting quarterback Andy Dalton left the game with an injury. Matt Nagy turned to Justin Fields to guide his team to its first victory of the season. Fields completed six of his 13 passing attempts for 60 yards and had 10 carries for 31 yards as the Bears defeated Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, 20-17.

McLaurin Shines on TNF

Terry McLaurin has shuffled with seven different quarterbacks in his young NFL career, yet he continues to deliver elite numbers on the field. With 11 catches for 107 yards, his first touchdown of the season and a 30-29 win on national TV, McLaurin delivered once again for the Washington Football Team

Zeke Gets Fed

Ezekiel Elliott picked up his first touchdown of the 2021 season against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday and finished with 71 rushing yards and two catches for 26 yards in a 20-17 win for the Dallas Cowboys.

New Team for Roby

Bradley Roby made his first start of the season for the New Orleans Saints and claimed a seven-yard sack on this play.

Nick Bosa is a Sack Machine
