The NFL is back in full swing and Patrick Mahomes hasn’t slowed down one bit. He is still undefeated in the month of September and capped it off with a huge victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Not everyone who has once donned a Red Raider uniform performed as well this week. Here is the good and the bad from all former Red Raiders that happened this weekend.
Terrence Steele – Dallas Cowboys
Steele was benched about halfway through the game against the Seahawks Sunday. He did not seem in sync with the rest of the offensive line. I doubt he gets another start out there at right tackle and will most likely be a depth piece for the Cowboys from here on out.
Jordyn Brooks – Seattle Seahawks
Brooks got his first NFL start this weekend, but he got injured early on in the game. It appears he sprained his MCL according to many sources. This could keep him out for a month or even more.
Danny Amendola – Detroit Lions
Amendola didn’t have a great game but caught one pass for 18 yards. He did not play as many snaps this game as he had in previous weeks, as his snap percentage dropped by about 15%.
Dakota Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars
Allen got some reps at linebacker as well as playing very well on special teams against the Dolphins Thursday night. If he continues to trend this way, more time at linebacker might be in store for him.
Jakeem Grant – Miami Dolphins
Grant has seen his usage on offense drop, but his stats are still pretty decent. He ran the ball once for 29 yards and caught the ball once for 19 yards. He is still serving as the Dolphins’ primary kick and punt returner.
Kerry Hyder – San Francisco 49ers
Hyder has really carved a good role for himself in San Francisco. He is playing most of the snaps on defense now and even got a sack and record a few tackles this weekend.
Patrick Mahomes II – Kansas City Chiefs
I’m pretty sure Wikipedia will say that Mahomes owns the Ravens at some point. He put up a huge numbers again with 385 passing yards and 5 total touchdowns including one rushing. If there was any questions of whether Lamar Jackson was better than Mahomes, it was surely answered last night.
