Nittany Lions In The NFL: Week 10 Roundup
It seems as if some bad energy from Penn State football’s heartbreaking loss to Michigan on Saturday carried throughout the weekend and onto the once-Nittany Lions who suited up for some NFL action.
Although it was a slow week performance-wise for many of them, let’s see how some of our favorite Nittany Lion alumni faired in their week 10 NFL matchups.
Saquon Barkley, New York Giants
Saquon Barkley totaled 66 yards on just 13 carries in the Giants’ 49-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday afternoon. It was hard for the Giants to get the ground game going as the score got away from them early on, forcing the team to lean toward the passing game to try to catch up.
Despite the disastrous state of the Giants’ offense, Barkley was once again an efficient rusher this week, boasting 5.1 yards per carry.
Jahan Dotson, Washington Commanders
Jahan Dotson was held to zero catches on two targets in the Commanders’ 29-26 loss to the Seahawks. Dotson had been on a nice roll in the past few weeks, but the stingy Seattle defense kept him off the board this week.
Micah Parsons, Dallas Cowboys
Micah Parsons shockingly didn’t register any stats in the Cowboys’ 49-17 blowout of the Giants. This blank stat sheet ended his streak of three consecutive weeks with at least one sack.
Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Chris Godwin hauled in four of his six targets for a total of 54 yards in the Buccaneers’ 20-6 win over the Titans. The veteran receiver is on a slow yet steady pace this year, sitting at 44 catches for 522 yards and a touchdown through nine games so far.
Odafe Oweh, Baltimore Ravens
Odafe Oweh totaled four solo tackles and a strip sack in the Ravens’ 33-31 loss to the Browns. The young pass rusher is up to three sacks this season and has recorded back-to-back weeks with a sack.
Mike Gesicki, New England Patriots
Mike Gesicki was targeted three times on Sunday, bringing in two catches for 22 yards in the Patriots’ 10-6 loss to the Colts. Gesicki totaled 66 yards in his last five games with New England.
Joey Porter Jr., Pittsburgh Steelers
Joey Porter Jr. totaled three solo tackles and one assist in the Steelers’ scrappy 23-19 victory over the Packers.
Nick Scott, Cincinnati Bengals
Coming off of a big performance last week, Nick Scott recorded just three tackles, one solo and two assisted, in the Bengals’ 30-27 loss to the Texans on Sunday.
