It’s hard to be too excited about what happened last weekend from a Pro Frogs perspective after watching Andy Dalton get absolutely obliterated by a Washington defender — and his teammates stand there and watch it without seeming to care one iota.
The Cowboys are an utter disaster, and honestly, not playing behind that leaky o-line might be the best thing to happen to the Red Rifle. Let’s take a look at what went right for TCU players in the NFL.
Jason Verrett, CB, San Francisco 49ers
JV remains the best shut down corner in the NFL, with a 7.8 passer rating against — best in the NFL.
Verrett had three tackles in a big win over New England Sunday, as the Niners dropped the Patriots 33-6.
Ben Banogu, DE, Indianapolis Colts
Ross Blacklock, DT, Houston Texans
Ross didn’t record a stat in Sunday’s loss to the Packers, though he did play 32% of the defensive snaps, as Romeo Crennel seems to be a bigger fan of the rookie than Bill O’Brien was.
L.J. Collier, DE, Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks and Cardinals played a crazy game Sunday night, as Seattle fell in OT of a back and forth game. Collier played about half the snaps for the Hawks, recording a tackle and tackle for loss in the game.
Andy Dalton, QB, Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys got smoked and looked about as interested in winning a football game as TCU did Saturday. If you switched the Cowboys’ and the Horned Frogs’ offensive lines, would anyone know?
The worst part of the game was seeing Dalton get smoked on this dirty play:

After the hit, Dalton’s teammates... did... nothing.
And people noticed:
I don’t condone violence, but the fact that NO #Cowboys Offensive lineman tried to go after Bostic after that dirty hit on Dalton is..... telling.— Emmanuel Acho (@EmmanuelAcho) October 25, 2020
Unclear which was more egregious: Washington LB Jon Bostic's hit on Andy Dalton or the lack of combative response from Cowboys teammates after their quarterback had just been laid out on maybe the dirtiest hit of the 2020 season.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) October 25, 2020
I coached for a long time. At every level, I taught my players a play that we called “Folsom” — named for Folsom Prison. If one of their teammates got cheap shotted, they would use Folsom on the next baseline out of bounds play — it was a dirty play and no one got hurt, but it was a series of screens that was not pleasant to deal with. How the Cowboys just watched their QB get killed? Ridiculous.
Jeff Gladney, CB, Minnesota Vikings
Jerry Hughes, DE, Buffalo Bills
What a day for the wily old veteran, as Jerry Hughes put together possibly his best day as a pro to help the Bills beat the Jets 18-10.
Hughes had his first two sack game in just about forever, and his interception sealed the game.
It was a great moment for the 11 year vet, who added six tackles and a pair of QB hits to his stats sheet as well.
Joe Noteboom, OL, Los Angeles Rams
Missed the Monday Night game on IR.
Matt Pryor, OG/OT, Philadelphia Eagles
Pryor saw his PT cut significantly in Thursday night’s game, playing just 22 snaps in the Eagles’ win.
Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
There was a school of thought that Reagor would return for Thursday night’s game, but he was inactive for the contest. It appears, via twitter, that he is back on the practice field — which is a good sign for Philly fans.

Austin Schlottmann, OG/C, Denver Broncos
Schlottmann played just three snaps on special teams as the Broncos fell victim to Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs Sunday.
Vernon Scott, S, Green Bay Packers
Another big day for Vernon, who played just 13 snaps on defense and recorded one tackle — but boy was it a big one:
Scott’s stop on third and goal diminished any hope the Texans had of making this thing a ball game, and the Pack rolled to an easy win.
Ty Summers, LB, Green Bay Packers
Ty had three tackles playing on defense and special teams in Green Bay’s win.
Halapoulivaati Vaitai, OT, Detroit Lions
Big V did not play in the Lions dramatic comeback win over Atlanta.
