It’s about time I got you updated on some of the Bearcats in the NFL. Starting three weeks late is OK, right?
- Kenbrell Thompkins: It seems he’s finally established himself as a reliable target for Tom Brady, which are few and far between in New England. Thompkins caught 3 passes for 21 yards and a pair of touchdowns, the first of his NFL career. He was a major contributor in the Patriots’ romp of Tampa Bay.
- John Hughes: In Cleveland’s surprising win at Minnesota, the Browns defensive tackle recorded 3 tackles and a sack of Vikings quaterback Christian Ponder.
- Brent Celek: The Eagles tight end appears to be getting less and less targets in Chip Kelly’s offense that seems to prefer distributing more passes to runningback LeSean McCoy. He caught a pair of passes for 18 yards in Philly’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
- Connor Barwin: Recorded 6 tackles, a knocked down pass, and a quarterback hit on Chief’s signal caller Alex Smith.
- Trent Cole: Like his counterpart on the otherside of the Eagles’ defensive line, Cole had a relatively quiet game. He notched just a single tackle, a sack of Alex Smith.
- Kevin Huber: Didn’t get a ton of work in with the Bengals getting into a shootout with the Packers but did have some nice punts. Booted 3 balls for an average of 43.7 yards with a long of 55 yards. Pretty much par for the course for Huber.
- Isaiah Pead: Had one of his most steady games in years for the St. Louis Rams, despite coming in a losing effort. Pead had 6 carries for 20 yards on the ground and 7 catches for 43 yards through the air. I know the raw numbers aren’t very impressive but this was arguably on of his better games as a Ram.
