Pro Frogs: Jerry Hughes shines in Buffalo win

The long time veteran secured his first career interception Sunday against the Jets.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

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 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 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.
