Buckeyes in the NFL – Week 5


MORE: Active Buckeyes on NFL Team Rosters

Zeke feasts, defensive Buckeyes live in the backfield, and more from Week Five of the NFL season.

Zeke & Destroy

As the Cowboys faced an early 14-point deficit, Ezekiel Elliott took control of the game with a one-yard touchdown plunge and 12-yard scamper after quarterback Dak Prescott was carted off the field. He finished Sunday’s game with 19 carries for 91 yards and one catch for 14 yards.

Backfield Menaces

In what likely comes as no surprise to you, Buckeye defensive players in the NFL have a knack for finding the quarterback. Both Jerome Baker and Cameron Heyward recorded sacks on Sunday, and Chase Young returned to play and notched a tackle for loss.
