This is why you draft Badgers.
- Leon Jacobs (Jaguars): The Jags took it light on Jacobs’ return from injury, playing him sparingly. He recorded a pair of tackles.
- Nick Nelson (Raiders): Nelson continues to be inactive, reportedly dealing with a hamstring injury.
- Jack Cichy (Buccaneers): Cichy turned in another empty stat line.
- Natrell Jamerson (Texans): Saints fans are mad that they cut Jamerson, as his replacement continues to get light up in one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. He’s not doing much with the Texans, though, playing sparingly if at all.
- Troy Fumagalli (Broncos): Still on IR.
- T.J. Watt (Steelers): Watt recorded four tackles in a 30–27 win over Tampa Bay on Monday Night Football.
- Corey Clement (Eagles): Clement earned his first NFL start on Sunday, and he had a rough day. He rushed for 56 yards on 16 carries, and he fumbled twice.
- Vince Biegel (Saints): Look who’s on an NFL roster again! According to Dave Heller, Biegel played only special teams, seeing 25 special teams snaps after being promoted from the practice squad. Also, he wasn’t flagged for roughing the passer. (Yet).
- Rick Wagner (Lions): He’s doing good things and helped give the Patriots a losing record. The Lions also had a 100-yard rusher for the first time in four years, in part thanks to Wagner.
And that’s how you beat the Patriots, friends.
- Joe Schobert (Browns): What a STUD. Schobert, a Pro Bowler last year, is having a fabulous season and has played a huge part in the Browns’ win and tie this year. Don’t look now, they’re .500! Schobert had seven tackles in the 21–17 win over the Jets, and he made the game-winning interception.
Chills. That’s why you draft Badgers.
Gordon’s touchdown was sprung by a great block by fellow Badger alum Derek Watt.
- James White (Patriots): He wasn’t involved enough in the game, only receiving three passes. One of those was for a touchdown, though, to help the Patriots pretend that they might beat the Lions.
Tom Brady on James White, who had the Patriots’ lone touchdown tonight: “He’s got to be involved. The guys who can make plays, those are the ones who should be involved.”

That’s right, Tom.
- Russell Wilson (Seahawks): His yards were down from last week, but his performance was much better overall. He completed 61.5% of his passes and two touchdowns in a 24–13 win over the Cowboys. More important, Wilson eliminated turnovers from his lexicon this weekend.
- Alex Erickson (Bengals): Erickson’s still not getting involved in the offense even though he might be helpful.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see WR Alex Erickson line up in the backfield for the Bengals today. They’ve used him back there before, and it creates a huge mismatch that the Panthers won’t be expecting.

He wasn’t targeted in a 31–21 loss to the Panthers.
