The current Buckeyes started off the weekend in fashion, beating a ranked team in TCU, and our former Buckeyes followed it up next during week two of the NFL season. Without further ado, here is how they performed during the second week of the season.
- Michael Thomas: Can’t guard Mike was at it again against the Browns, as he hauled in 12 passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Through two games, Thomas has 28 catches, an NFL record. He is proving every week that he is one of the elite receivers in football.
- Marshon Lattimore: Lattimore was back to elite self as he totaled five tackles and a forced fumble in the win over the Browns. After a tough weekend last week, Lattimore rebounded nicely as reminded people just how dominant he can be.
- Ezekiel Elliott: The Cowboys rode their bell cow running back Elliott in their win over the Giants. On the day, Zeke carried the ball 17 times for 78 yards and a touchdown. He continued to move the chains for Dallas and helped keep the Giants offense off the field.
- Sam Hubbard: Hubbard started off the action on Thursday night, as he recorded five tackles, including his first ever NFL sack. He has been great for the Bengals, and is one of the many rushers getting to the quarterback this season for Cincinnati.
- Cameron Heyward: In a game that had a total of 79 points, defense was not very apparent. However, Hayward did have three tackles and a forced fumble in the loss to the Chiefs. He remains one of the best pass rushers and leaders for this Steelers team.
- Malcolm Jenkins: Jenkins and the Eagles lost a tough one to the surprising 2-0 Bucs. On the day, Jenkins had five tackles, including a forced fumbled. He is the leader of the Eagles secondary, and they will continue to look to him to make big plays this season.
- Carlos Hyde: Hyde once again received the bulk of the carries for the Browns, as he gained 43 yards on 16 carried, and scored a touchdown. The yard per carry was not great, but Hyde once again found the end zone for Cleveland.
- Terrelle Pryor: Pryor caught four passes for 84 yards in the loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. After an average game last week, Pryor rebounded nicely for the Jets, as he tries to show them he can be a valuable part of this offense.
- Denzel Ward: Ward had another good game for the Browns, as he recorded six tackles in the loss to the Saints. Through two games, he is showing how important a good young corner can be for an up and coming team.
- Mike Nugent: Nugent was two for two in field goals on the day, with a long of 46 yards in the loss to the Raiders. On a day where kickers really struggled, Nugent showed his worth once again to Oakland.
