Can you believe football season is half over? Gotta relish the next couple of months because we’ll be back to baseball season before we know it. Blech. Here’s a short list of the performances of some former Bearcats in the NFL.
Kenbrell Thompkins: For the first time all season, the New England Patriots receiver didn’t record a single catch. Clearly the return of Rob Gronkowski is hinder his ability to get looks from Tom Brady after arguably being one of his favorite receivers during the first half of the season. Thompkins was targeted just once on Sunday.
Brent Celek: In one of the worst offensive games of all time, the Philadelphia Eagles put up just 200 yards of total offense. So much for Chip Kelly’s famed scoring machine. Celek was pretty decently involved, catching two passes for 17 yards.
Connor Barwin: Even though the Eagles’ defense spent quite a bit of time on the field on Sunday, Barwin was fairly quiet, notching just a single tackle and batting down three passes.
Trent Cole: Like his defensive linemate, Cole was quite against the New York Giants. He picked up just one tackle and batted down a pass.
Kevin Huber: The Cincinnati Bengals put on a scoring clinic at the expense of the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon. Over 400 yards and 49 points kept punter Kevin Huber on the sidelines. He only had three kicks on the day but booted them for an average of 53.7 yards with a long of 58.
Derek Wolfe: The Broncos had a tough test on Sunday against the unpredictable Redskins offense. But Derek Wolfe held his own, notching two tackles, a sack, and a pair of quarterback hits. He also fell on a fumble for his first recovery of his career. Overall, it was a solid performance from Denver’s defensive end.
