How’d the NFL Dawgs fare over the past week?
Here’s a recap...
David Andrews may as well have been the last man standing for the Patriots, as the other four starters on the offensive line were out with COVID-19. He was in for every offensive snap in a 25-22 win against the Texans. For Houston, Jordan Jenkins had four tackles, one for a loss, and Chris Conley had 84 yards receiving, including a 37-yard touchdown.

In the Bills 38-20 win against the Chiefs, Isaiah McKenzie had a seven-yard punt return and four-yard kick return while for the Chiefs, Mecole Hardman had nine catches for 76 yards.

In a wild loss for the Browns against the Chargers, 47-42, Nick Chubb also ran wild, racking up 161 yards and a 52-yard touchdown.

Justin Houston had a trio of tackles in the Ravens 31-25 overtime win against the Colts, and Ben Cleveland saw early action before leaving in the second quarter with a knee injury. Nick Moore continues to make a nice career on special teams, being the long snapper on field goals, punts as well as having a special teams tackle.
To every one who tweeted, texted, called or prayed for me last night, thank you. It means the world to know that #theflock stands behind their players the way they do! Positive news from the doctors today so we’ll be back soon and better than ever! #GoRavens— Big Country (@BenCleveland74) October 12, 2021
Rodrigo Blankenship suffered through a tough night as he faced a hip injury, having one field goal blocked, missing a game-tying field goal try, and also missed an extra point. He did, however, also hit field goals of 37 and 43 yards
