Jason Verrett, CB, San Francisco 49ers
Richard Sherman returned to the Niners Sunday, moving JV from field to boundary corner. It didn’t seem to bother him one bit, as he had a big day teaming up with Sherman, collecting five tackles as the 49ers got a field goal late to beat the Rams 23-20.
He also joined SF’s Unscripted Podcast for an interview.
And had a really nice article written about his healthy season, too, which included this quote:
“Jason Verrett is one of the comeback stories of the season,” wrote Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus. “He had played just four snaps on defense since the beginning of the 2018 season, and 327 since the start of 2016, but he has surpassed that total this year alone while establishing himself as one of the best cover guys in the league.”
Ben Banogu, DE, Indianapolis Colts
Banogu was a healthy scratch again, as the Colts got torched by the Titans. This doesn’t give me much hope that he has a future in Indy:
Hard to view today's Colts inactive list as anything more than an indictment of Ben Banogu. The Colts are down two starting D linemen and he's a healthy scratch. Wow.— Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen) November 29, 2020
Maybe the best thing for him is to get released and get a fresh start somewhere else.
Joey Hunt, C, Indianapolis Colts
Hunt was elevated to the active roster with the Colts down a center.
Ross Blacklock, DT, Houston Texans
Blacklock had a nice game in the Texans win over the Lions, with the broadcasters shouting him out multiple times. He had two tackles on the day, including this stuff:
L.J. Collier, DE, Seattle Seahawks
LJ got a shoutout from Mina Kimes so I would say he had a good night on Monday Night Football.
pretty sure LJ Collier just did a haduken sack celebration and you all need to take back anything critical you've ever said about him— Mina Kimes (@minakimes) December 1, 2020
He had three tackles and a sack in Seattle’s win at Philadelphia.
Andy Dalton, QB, Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys got rolled on Thanksgiving Day, and while it wasn’t all Andy’s fault, the former Frog did not have a particularly good day. Dalton went 25-35 for 215 yards, one touchdown and an interception. He also rushed three times for 17 yards.
Skip still believes in him, but I don’t know if that helps:
What kills me about this is that Andy Dalton is STILL the best quarterback in the NFC East. Just played his tail off today, throwing and even running.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) November 27, 2020
Dallas lost to the Washington Football team 41-16.
I blame Zeke.
Sewo Olonilua, RB, Dallas Cowboys
Jeff Gladney, CB, Minnesota Vikings
Jeff had another solid day as the Vikings held off the Carolina Panthers (and Matt Rhule) for a 28-27 win. With six tackles, including a tackle for loss, he continues to improve each week and is making a name for himself as a player always around the ball:
#Vikings Rookie CB Jeff Gladney is playing so fast and playing with so much confidence right now. Every week he’s continues to grow.— Matt Anderson (@MattAndersonNFL) November 30, 2020
Whether it’s a run or pass. He’s flying to the ball, making solid open field tackles, contesting catches. He’s coming into his own #Skol pic.twitter.com/UBaJK8X85v
He’s also consistently earning praise from outsiders:
Every time I glance at the Vikings game Jeff Gladney is around the ball. I know he’s struggled a bit in coverage, but I feel like he’s getting better as the year goes on (CB is a lot to acclimate to in the NFL). For now, he’s learning, and his run support has been fantastic.— Trevor Sikkema (@TampaBayTre) November 29, 2020
Jerry Hughes, DE, Buffalo Bills
Hughes had a really great game in the Bills win over the Chargers, despite dealing with a back injury. The veteran had four tackles, a tackle for loss, half a sack, and a pair of QB hits, ever so kindly introducing himself to rookie Justin Hebert.
Joe Noteboom, OL, Los Angeles Rams
Noteboom was solid in his second consecutive start at LT in place of veteran Andrew Whitworth. But the Rams were shocked by the 49ers, losing 23-20 on a late field goal.
Matt Pryor, OG/OT, Philadelphia Eagles
Jamal Adams and the Seahawks ate Monday night, sacking Carson Wentz five times on their way to a win over the Eagles. Pryor was fine in his role starting on the offensive line, but the unit as a whole didn’t do much to get the running game going. Some of the pressures could be leveled on Wentz’s shoulders, as he has a habit of holding onto the ball for too long and didn’t show much presence in the pocket — albeit, under duress most of the evenings.
Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
Carson Wentz is terrible. Watching (part of) the Monday Night game, I really felt for Reag. He got stuck with a fourth string QB his sophomore year, a freshman QB as a junior, and now this hot garbage in Philly to start his pro career.
Reagor was fine against the Seahawks; he was targeted seven times, made three catches — but had just 11 yards. There was a catchable ball in the end zone that he seemed to give up on a bit; it certainly wasn’t a great throw, but even the announcers said it was a play he should make. He has certainly shown flashes, but until the Eagles get a better QB — or Wentz plays like he did as a rookie — it’s hard to expect much out of Reag.
Austin Schlottmann, OG/C, Denver Broncos
Schlottmann had one special teams snap in the Broncos’ loss to New Orleans. That means he played more snaps than Denver had QBs on its roster.
Vernon Scott, S, Green Bay Packers
Vernon had a couple of special teams tackles for the Pack against the Bears on Sunday Night Football.
Ty Summers, LB, Green Bay Packers
Summers was relegated to special teams Sunday, where he did not record a stat.
Halapoulivaati Vaitai, OT, Detroit Lions
Poor Big V... back on the injury list with the foot problem that has plagued him all year. Whether he will be activated again this season remains to be seen.
Marshall Newhouse, OT, Tennessee Titans
Newhouse was signed to the Titans practice squad, giving him a shot to revive his career.
