It was a good week for former Frogs in the NFL, as Trevone Boykin threw his first career touchdown in relief of Russell Wilson and Derrick Kindred got his first career start.
Jonathan Anderson, LB (Chicago Bears):
Jonathan had his best game of the season, collecting three tackles, including two solo, in the Sunday night loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Dak is good, and the Bears are bad.
Week 3 Stats: 3 tackles
2016 Season Stats: 4 tackle
Trevone Boykin, QB (Seattle Seahawks):
After getting banged up in the season opener, Russell Wilson finally succumbed to one of his injuries, coming out of the game with the Seahawks up big against SF. Tre threw his first career touchdown (and an interception) in mop-up duty, going 7/9 for 65 yards. All eyes are on Seattle to see if Wilson will be back for week four against the Jets.
Week 3 Stats: 7-9 (77.7%), 65 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT; 2 rush, -2 yards
2016 Season Stats: 7-9 (77.7%), 65 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT; 2 rush, -2 yards
Marcus Cannon, OL (New England Patriots):
Big Cannon protected his third different QB in three games this season, as the Pats won big behind Jacoby Brissett.
Tank Carder, LB (Cleveland Browns):
No stats for Tank in a gut-wrenching loss to Miami.
Andy Dalton, QB (Cincinnati Bengals):
Dalton ran into a defensive buzzsaw when his Bengals hosted the Denver Broncos, and was outdueled by Trevor Siemian in the process. The Bengals have sputtered to a 1-2 start, but at least Dalton flashed some sick moves on a scramble.
Week 3 Stats: 21-31 (67.7%), 206 yards, 0 TD, 1 INT; 6 rush, 40 yards
2016 Season Stats: 75-115 (65.2%), 938 yards, 2 TD, 2 INT; 11 rush, 54 yards
Josh Doctson, WR (Washington Redskins):
Doctson was a late scratch against the Giants due to his lingering Achilles injury.
2016 Season Stats: 2 reception, 66 yards
Jerry Hughes, DE (Buffalo Bills):
Hughes and the rest of the Bills Mafia harassed Carson Palmer all game, helping the struggling Bills to their first win of the season.
Week 3 Stats: 2 tackles, 1 sack
2016 Season Stats: 13 tackles, 3 sacks, 1 PBU
Joey Hunt, C (Seattle Seahawks):
No stats for Joey in week three.
Colin Jones, S (Carolina Panthers):
No stats for Colin in week three.
Jeremy Kerley, WR (San Francisco 49ers):
Kerley was targeted six times in week three, but caught only two balls and fumbled against the Hawks. He has slowed down considerably since his debut, but is still someone that Blaine Gabbert looks for on offense.
Week 3 Stats: 2 receptions, 24 yards; 1 punt returns, 20 yards
2016 Season Stats: 12 receptions, 114 yards; 3 punt returns, 31 yards
Derrick Kindred, S (Cleveland Browns):
DK got his first start of the year, as he continues to earn the trust and respect of his coaches and teammates. The Browns are bad, but Peanut is good.
Week 3 Stats: 4 tackles
2016 Season Stats: 15 tackles, 2 PBU
Marshall Newhouse, OT (New York Giants):
No stats for Marshall in week three.
Halapoulivaati Vaitai, OT (Philadelphia Eagles):
No stats for Big V in week three.
Jason Verrett, CB (San Diego Chargers):
JV got dinged up Sunday in a loss at Indy, and was subsequently targeted by Andrew Luck down the stretch. Here’s hoping Verrett is back to 100% soon.
Week 3 Stats: 3 tackles
2016 Season Stats: 7 tackles, 1 PD, 1 INT
