Badgers in the NFL: Week 14

How did former Badgers do in the NFL during Week 14?

NFL: New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

One of the tasks that I’ve chosen with Bucky’s 5th Quarter is chronicling the NFL performances for all Badgers playing in The League every week.

So, here’s what we saw from our lads in Week 14.

Pittsburgh Steelers (Wisconsin of the NFL)

T.J. Watt: A modest 4 QB hurries and 5 tackles. This was probably a tough week if you rely on Watt in an IDP fantasy football league.

Keeanu Benton: Only 17 snaps and 1 tackle. It should have been more, but soon will be as Benton was finally named the starter.

Nick Herbig: A season-high 7 tackles to go along with 1 QB hurry for the rookie.

Isaiahh Loudermilk: No stats in a very quiet 10 snap week.

Dallas Cowboys

Jake Ferguson: 5 grabs for 72 yards (and one huge hurdle). Already a hyper-talented TE and grandson, Jake is quickly becoming a legend for his massive plays and Texas-sized confidence.

Tyler Biadasz: It was 82 sack, hit, and hurry free snaps for one of the top young OL in the NFL.

Miami Dolphins

Alec Ingold: 1 catch for 13 yards in the game, and was recently nominated for NFL Man of The Year, which is amazing. Congrats to Alec!

Andrew Van Ginkel: The Notorious AVG had 4 tackles and a QB hit in an embarrassing Dolphins loss to the Titans.

Indianapolis Colts

Jonathan Taylor: Was out again with a thumb injury and it’s unclear when he’ll be back in action. Hopefully he’s not killing your fantasy team in the meantime.

New Orleans Saints

Zack Baun: A hit, hurry, and 2 tackles in 30 defensive snaps in a decent all-around game.

Ryan Ramsczyk: Allowed 2 hurries, but kept his QB upright all game.

Chicago Bears.

TJ Edwards: Only 3 tackles across 65 snaps in a very quiet game. Edwards is still 6th in tackles in the NFL.

Jack Sanborn: 1 tackle, but still had a sterling 82.0 PFF grade.

Denver Broncos

Russell Wilson: Went 21/33 for 224 yards, 2 TD and 1 INT, to go along with 5 rushing yards in a rock solid 24-7 win over the Chargers. His play yielded a very strong 84.5 PFF grade.

Matt Henningsen: 1 tackle and 1 QB hurry across 16 defensive snaps for the smartest player in NFL.

New York Jets

Joe Tippmann: Gave up a sack and 2 hits in an up and down game for the talented rookie.

Los Angeles Rams

Rob Havenstein: Only played 16 snaps, but had a totally clean sheet with 0 sacks, hits, or hurries allowed.

Kansas City Chiefs

Leo Chenal: 6 tackles and a QB hit in a gutting loss to the Bills that featured an easy (yet somehow controversial) offside call near the end that the refs got 100% correct. Sorry, Mr. Mahomes. Deal with it.

Baltimore Ravens

Kevin Zeitler: Gave up only 2 QB hurries in 72 snaps in a really solid game that the Ravens pulled out in OT.

Houston Texans

Michael Deiter: Gave up 5 hurries but no hits or sacks in 55 plays trying to protect CJ Stroud in a tough, costly loss for the Texans.

Dare Ugunbowale: 2 carries for 7 yards and 1 catch for 4 yards for the ex-Badger. No FG attempts, sadly.

Los Angeles Chargers

Alex Erickson: Saw no offensive snaps for the Rams.

Buffalo Bills

David Edwards: Only 8 uneventful snaps for Edwards in a huge Bills’ win.
