Another week has come and gone in the NFL season and we’re nearly at the halfway point.
Some former Bulls have really been making a name for themselves so far in 2019, including one Green Bay Packers receiver who had an outstanding week 7 performance.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling- WR, Green Bay Packers
Although he was only targeted three times in the 42-24 win over the Oakland Raiders, he made those targets count. MVS showed off his speed and deep ball skills gaining 133 yards on two catches, good enough to lead the team. He also scored on a 74 yard touchdown pass to put the Packers up 28-10 in the third quarter.
MVS currently leads the NFC North leading Packers in receiving yards with 416 and is second on the team with two touchdowns. He’ll will be taking on two former Bulls this week Sunday night at 8:30 p.m. ET when they travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs.
Austin Reiter- C, Kansas City Chiefs
Reiter once again played every offensive snap for the Chiefs in their blowout win against the Broncos last Thursday. Starting QB Patrick Mahomes went down early in the game and the offense only managed 271 total yards. It was good enough to get the job done by a final score of 30-6.
Reiter will no doubt look to help open up the Chiefs run game a little more with Mahomes out for the next three weeks. They’ll have a tough task this week taking on the Packers.
Terrell McClain- DL, Kansas City Chiefs
In his second week with the Chiefs he played 10 defensive snaps, getting on tackle in the win against the Broncos.
The Colts got a huge win over the Houston Texans last week to move into first place of the AFC South. Mack was the Colts leading rusher, but he only totaled 44 yards on 18 carries, good for less than 2.5 YPC. Indianapolis obviously emphasized the passing game a little more last week and Mack helped out there too, catching three passes for 12 yards.
Mack and the Colts welcome the 2-5 Broncos to Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET.
D’Ernest Johnson- RB, Cleveland Browns
Johnson and the Browns had a bye week, but they’ll be back on the field Sunday. It won’t be easy to get a W as they head to New England to take on the AFC’s best team, the New England Patriots at 4:25 p.m. ET.
