- Cardinals’ offensive guard Rich Ohrnberger finally got his first career start on Sunday, as Adam Snyder was held out with an injury. I didn’t get to watch the game myself, but based on Twitter reactions, it didn’t seem to have gone too well. That is based on Twitter, though…
- Second-year defensive tackle Phil Taylor finally returned to the field on Sunday after missing the first 8 weeks of the season with a pectoral injury. He started for the Browns and despite only recording one tackle, all accounts seem to be positive about his performance. Unfortunately for him, he’s still on the Browns.
- You may have noticed I got rid of the “Practice Squad” section of the recap this week. That’s because Dennis Landolt was cut from the Jets’ and was the only Penn Stater on one around the league.
- Not that it’s surprising or anything, but defensive end Cameron Wake has gone 5 straight games with recording a sack. The streak comes after he went through the first 3 weeks of the season without recording a single one. The one sack on Sunday brings his total up to 8.5 for the year, good for 4th best in the NFL. NFL leader JJ Watt currently has 10.5.
- Just past the halfway point, Evan Royster found the endzone for the first time this season. The 2-yard TD run came with under 2 minutes remaining and put the ‘Skins within one TD/2-pt conversion of tying the game. Unfortunately, Washington couldn’t recover the ensuing onside kick and lost the game. With the emergence of Alfred Morris this season, don’t expect Royster’s role to increase any time soon.
