Games to watch with Badgers vs. Badgers

  • A week after knocking off J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans, Travis Frederick and the 4-1 Dallas Cowboys lock horns with Russell Wilson and the 3-1 Seattle Seahawks. Pete Carroll's team is riding high after a 27-17 victory over the Washington Redskins where the former Badgers quarterback threw for over 200 yards, ran for over 100, and contributed to all three of Seattle's touchdowns (2 passing, 1 rushing).
  • Speaking of Watt, he showed once again that he's arguably the best defensive player in the NFL. Though losing to the Indianapolis Colts 33-28 Thursday night, Watt had 7 tackles, 2 sacks, 3 TFLs, and a fumble recovery he took 45-yards for his THIRD touchdown of the year, which culminated with this dance (h/t @CJZero):

  • Other games featuring former Badgers include Baltimore at Tampa Bay, Carolina at Cincinnati, New England at Buffalo and San Francisco at St. Louis
