Games to watch with Badgers vs. Badgers

  • After being named AFC Defensive Player of the Week -- with his first career interception and pick-six, five tackles, and an absurd nine quarterback hits - Watt, Garrett Graham and the 3-1 Houston Texans take on Travis Frederick, Nick Hayden and the 3-1 Dallas Cowboys. This should be a great game Badgers fans should watch, especially if Watt -- who was also fined $16,250 for roughing Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel -- moves around and there are some one-on-one with the former Badgers center who's helped solidify a once-shaky Cowboys offensive line
  • Chris Maragos, Beau Allen, and the 3-1 Philadelphia Eagles look to rebound from their first loss of the season, as they take on a fresh Lance Kendricks and the St. Louis Rams off of their bye week
