It’s time to look once more at how our former guys did in the pro league!
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13th
LOS ANGELES CHARGERS 29, KANSAS CITY 28
Chiefs - Dee Ford (LB) added to his season total with another sack to go along with 3 tackles on the night.
NFL sack leaders:— Rob Kimbell (@RobKSports) December 16, 2018
1. Aaron Donald, 16.5
2. JJ Watt, 14.5
3. Chris Jones, 14
NFL forced fumbles leaders:
1. JJ Watt, 6
- Khalil Mack, 6
- Dee Ford, 6#washedup
He’s got 11.5 sacks this year, but he’s tied for first in forced fumbles with a couple of pretty good dudes.

CINCINNATI 30, OAKLAND 16
The injured guys that can’t play are well known.— Cincinnati Bengals (@Bengals) December 18, 2018
But how about the guys that are playing through pain?
TE C.J. Uzomah, who made one of Sunday’s biggest play, is a prime example.

Raiders - Daniel Carlson (K) scored the majority of Oakland’s points with field goals coming from 27, 40, and 50 yards. He’s been excellent since getting cut, missing a single kick in that time.
Raiders’ Daniel Carlson made a subtle adjustment to his kicking alignment after Vikings cut him. A more compact approach made the difference. Jon Gruden: “He is the real deal.” https://t.co/3snaAc96Rv— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) December 9, 2018
CHICAGO 24, GREEN BAY 17
Bears - Cody Parkey (K) hit his only field goal from 24 yards out and made all of his extra points in the win.
