2 weeks are in the books in the NFL!
While we’ve (finally) made it to the week that Auburn Football kicks off, the delay has given us the chance to solely devote our weekends to watching our former Tigers play in the NFL over the previous 2 weekends.
With that said, we’ll go down the list of games this week that featured Auburn players.
Browns 35 Bengals 30
C.J Uzomah - 4 receptions, 42 yards, TD
C.J. was building a great rapport with rookie QB Joe Burrow. The tight end, had 4 catches in Week 1 and had another 4 catches in Week 2, totaling 42 yards and a TD reception. The TD, a 23 yard reception with 9 minutes left in the 2nd quarter was also Joe Burrow’s first NFL TD pass.
Unfortunately, C.J. would suffer a torn Achilles later in the game and his 2020 season is over.
Josh Bynes - 8 tackles
Carl Lawson - 2 tackles
Cody Parkey - 5/5 XP
Cody came up from the practice squad this past week and did his job making all 5 of his extra point attempts.
Titans 33 Jaguars 30
Daniel Thomas - 1 tackle
Buccaneers 31 Panthers 17
Derrick Brown - 1 tackle
Carlton Davis - Interception, 5 tackles, Tackle for Loss, 2 pass deflections
After being tasked with Michael Thomas in Week 1, Davis drew Panthers WR D.J. Moore in Week 2.
With the Panthers driving down 7 early in the 4th quarter, Davis made an acrobatic interception to end the Panthers drive. The interception resulted in a field goal for the Bucs on their way to Tom Brady’s first win as a Buccaneer.
Jamel Dean - 6 tackles, Pass Deflection
Rams 37 Eagles 19
Rudy Ford - 1 tackle
Driscoll seems to have made a good early impression with the Eagles.
49ers 31 Jets 13
Dee Ford - Missed Sunday’s game due to a neck injury
Ford is one of several players injured for the 49ers and despite their win, they’ve lost several key contributors for a lengthy period including Joey Bosa for the rest of the year due to a Torn ACL.
Bills 31 Dolphins 28
Jordan Howard gets a key block from Chandler Cox here to score a Touchdown from 1 yard out.
Noah Igbinoghene - 4 tackles
With injuries in the Dolphins secondary, Iggy will take on an even bigger role in his 3rd game Thursday night in Jacksonville.
Colts 28 Vikings 11
Braden Smith - Started at RT
Packers 42 Lions 21
Kerryon Johnson - 8 carries, 32 yards, TD
Kerryon Johnson fulfilled a lifelong dream on Sunday, scoring at Green Bay’s Lambeau Field, And it didn’t matter that there were no fans there to celebrate the moment with him, so he just created his own moment.
Wasn’t any disrespect I’ve just always wanted to do that and never got the chance till today https://t.co/rQyRspafyo— Kerryon Johnson (@AyeyoKEJO) September 20, 2020
Montravious Adams - 1 tackle
Adams made his season debut after missing Week 1 with an injury.
Cowboys 40 Falcons 39
How Bout Them Cow.... Falcons??? How on earth did you lose this game? Just another one for #AtlantaSportsMoments I suppose....
Marlon missed his 2nd straight game with a knee injury.
Josh Harris - Long Snapper for 4 punts Sunday
Bears 17 Giants 13
Darius Slayton - 3 receptions, 33 yards
The Giants received terrible news that Starting Running Saquon Barkley tore his ACL and his out for the year. It will be interesting to see where New York goes but perhaps this opens up the passing game and more chances for Slayton the rest of the year.
Cardinals 30 Washington 15
Peyton Barber - 1 carry, 1 yard
Barber scored 2 TDs in Week 1 but got only 1 carry in Week 2.
Seahawks 35 Patriots 30
Cam Newton - 30/44, 397 yards, Pass TD, INT, 11 carries, 47 yards, 2 Rush TD
#ShowTimeCam is back!!!!
When the Panthers let Cam go, my gut said he would end up in New England and he would make a lot of people regret that happening. Sunday night showed that when he has an offensive line that can protect him, he can do the things we saw in his prime in Carolina and during the 2010 season at Auburn. He has single handedly gotten me invested in Patriots games this season, something I didn’t think was ever possible.
He made some history Sunday night as well.

Newton passes Otto Graham, Jack Kemp, Steve McNair and Steve Young for the most multi-rush touchdown games by a quarterback in NFL history. pic.twitter.com/F49Z890e2p
And now for some footage......
This is an incredible throw and catch from Cam to Julian Edelman here.
Cam’s 397 passing yards are the most since his rookie season back in 2011.
Jonathan Jones - 7 tackles, 1 QB hit
With the secondary short-handed due to an ejection and injuries, Neiko Thorpe got a chance to play more on defense than normal and was on the field for the game’s final play.

Raiders 34 Saints 24
Daniel Carlson - 2/2 FG (28, 54), 4/4 XP
Dear Vikings: You messed up. The Raiders thank you for your epic blunder.
After not making any Field Goals from 50 or more yards last year, Daniel is 2 for 2 so far this year, both from 54 yards out. This one put the nail in the Saints coffin as the Raiders won their first ever game in Las Vegas.
We’ll preview Week 3 on Thursday but just to get you excited we’ve got a pair of rookies on opposite sides of this week’s Thursday Night Football matchup that played in the Auburn secondary last season.
