New, 5 comments

Let’s see how our former Auburn Tigers fared in their respective season openers!

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Football Team Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Week 1 is in the books and it’s great to have live football to talk about! I know everyone is even more excited for Auburn to take the field in just 11 more days! Last Thursday, we looked at the Tigers who made their respective 53 man rosters.

25 former Auburn players made the cut for their teams respective opening day rosters. A trio of those guys had a major impact in their team’s Week 1 performance.

With that said, we’ll go down the list of games this week that featured Auburn players.

Patriots 21 Dolphins 11

Dolphins

Chandler Cox - No carries but had the key block to set up Miami’s only TD yesterday

Noah Igbinoghene - 2 total tackles

So here’s a cool nugget about Iggy:

Patriots

Cam Newton - 15/19 155 yards, 15 carries, 75 yards, 2 rushing TDs

Cam looked good in his Patriots debut on Sunday. It’s weird seeing him with 15 carries but I guess it helps when you have a team that has a good offensive line to run behind. It’s going to take me a LONG time to get used to this.

Touchdown #1

Touchdown #2

Jonathan Jones - 2 total tackles

Packers 43 Vikings 34

Packers

Montravious Adams - DNP due to toe injury

Washington 27 Eagles 17

Eagles

Rudy Ford - 3 total tackles

Jack Driscoll - Began his NFL career starting at Right Tackle

Washington

Peyton Barber - 17 carries, 29 yards, 2 TD

Washington trailed 17-0 early in this game and despite averaging just 1.7 yards per carry, Peyton found the endzone twice on Sunday. The first TD from 1 yard out and the 2nd one from 3 yards out to put Washington up for good.

Jaguars 27 Colts 20

Colts

Braden Smith - Started at RT

Jaguars

Daniel Thomas - Made his NFL debut at safety

Raiders 34 Panthers 30

Raiders

Daniel Carlson - 2/2 FG, 4/4 XP

This is the Daniel Carlson Auburn fans came to know and love. This one from 54 yards out:

His previous career long was from 50, done on 3 separate occasions his rookie season in 2018 with the Raiders.

Panthers

Derrick Brown - 3 total tackles, 1 solo tackle, 1 tackle for loss, Pass Deflection

The 7th overall pick had some eye opening plays in his NFL debut. As he did at Auburn, he battled constant double teams throughout the afternoon.

Bears 27 Lions 23

Lions

Kerryon Johnson - 7 carries, 14 yards

Seahawks 38 Falcons 25

Seahawks

Neiko Thorpe - Named Special Teams Captain, played 18 snaps on Special Teams

Falcons

Marlon Davidson - DNP due to a knee injury

Josh Harris - Long Snapper for 2 Falcons punts

Chargers 16 Bengals 13

Bengals

C.J. Uzomah - 4 receptions, 45 yards

Josh Bynes - Sack, 8 total tackles, 4 solo tackles, 1.5 Tackles for Loss, 1 QB hit

Carl Lawson - Sack, 5 total tackles, 4 solo tackles, 1 Tackle for Loss, 1 QB hit

Cardinals 24 49ers 20

49ers

Dee Ford - 3 total tackles, 1 solo tackle, 0.5 tackles for loss

Saints 34 Buccaneers 23

Buccaneers

Carlton Davis - 4 tackles, 1 Tackle for Loss

Considering that Michael Thomas is one of the top WRs in the NFL, I’d say Davis did a remarkable job of holding Thomas at bay.

Jamel Dean - 7 tackles

Steelers 26 Giants 16

Giants

Darius Slayton: 6 receptions, 102 yards, 2 TD

Darius had quite a showing on Monday Night Football. Slayton had both Touchdown grabs for the Giants in a losing effort.

Touchdown #1

Touchdown #2

On Thursday, we’ll preview Week 2 for our Auburn Football players in the NFL.
