Week one of the NFL season has come and gone, and with it came some of our NFL Dawgs making big names for themselves.
Among the highlights...

Jordan Jenkins logged three tackles for the Jets in a 17-16 win for Buffalo.
Thursday night’s clash between the Packers and Bears may not have been a pretty offensive show, but Leonard Floyd and Roquan Smith shined, Floyd having two sacks and Smith having five tackles, one for a loss.
Oh and the Roquan is good at football.
