Buckeyes in the NFL – Week 13

Ohio State Buckeyes

Roby Fulfills a Promise

Just days after a death in his family, Houston CB Bradley Roby put together his best day in a Texans uniform. On Sunday Night Football vs. the Patriots, Roby nabbed an interception, his first since October 2018, and recorded a sack, his first since December 2017. The sixth-year man also notched four total tackles and his second tackle for loss this season. Houston won 28-22, and Roby delivered on a promise he made to his late grandfather. (Image courtesy:

Big Man with the Hands

Speaking of interceptions, Broncos DL Dre’Mont Jones hauled in the first of his NFL career. The rookie has steadily logged more and more snaps all season before finally, on a screen pass against the Chargers, delivering his first big moment as a pro. Jones also added an assisted tackle on the afternoon, and Denver beat LA in a divisional tilt, 23-20. (Image courtesy:

Bell Been Ballin’

Two weeks removed from his first career pick, Saints SAF Vonn Bell became the league leader in fumble recoveries. He picked up his fifth this season in New Orleans’ 26-18 W over Atlanta on Thanksgiving night. The Saints defense is one of the best in the league, and Bell is quickly becoming one of its most reliable and durable playmakers. Last Thursday, he played more than 100 total snaps, nearly giving him an NFL record. (Image courtesy:

  • Michael Thomas: six catches for 48 yards

  • Marshon Lattimore: nine total tackles (eight solo, one assisted), one pass defended

Hubbard Helps Bengals Over Hump

The Bengals won a game. Yes, you read that correctly. By beating the Jets 22-6 in Cincinnati, they tally their first win of the season. DE Sam Hubbard had no problem showing his excitement, and Bengals fans had to be excited with Hubbard’s performance. The Cincinnati-native put up five tackles (four solo, one assisted) to go along with a tackle for loss and a sack. Through 12 games, Hubbard ranks second on the team in each category behind fellow D-Lineman Carlos Dunlap. (Image courtesy:

Samuel Setting the Tone

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel gets the offensive segment of this article all to himself, and deservedly so. Samuel’s tremendous touchdown catch gave his Panthers an early lead, and he ended the game – a 29-21 loss to the Dwayne Haskins-led Redskins – with four catches for 65 yards and his fifth touchdown catch of the season. With that score, he’s now caught five touchdowns in each of the last two seasons. (Image courtesy:
