The NFL season has headed into October, and so have some top performances by NFL Dawgs, some rookies, and other by league veterans.
Here’s a look at some of them.
At this point, just call Roquan Smith and Alec Ogletree the Dawg Monsters of the Midway. Ogletree had 12 tackles and a pass breakup on fourth and goal in the Bears 24-14 win against the Lions. Roquan Smith also registered ten tackles and a sack while D’Andre Swift hauled in four catches for 33 yards and rushed the ball eight times for 16 yards.

The guy is great in coverage. Hard to believe the Bears got him for nothing during training camp.
Elsewhere in the NFL North, Eric Stokes had his first career interception and eight tackles in the Packers 27-17 win against the Steelers.
