Week five for the former USF Bulls in the NFL was pretty unremarkable for all but one of the guys who used to don the green and gold
Jason Pierre-Paul- Tampa Bay Buccaneers OLB
JPP probably had his best game of the season in the Bucs huge win over the Green Bay Packers. He racked up 1.5 sacks on Aaron Rogers, taking his total up to 5.5 on the season. He has at least one sack in every game this year except for Tampa’s week five loss to the Bears.
On top of the sack, he notched six total tackles and two additional QB hits. He also forced a fumble and played 92% of the team’s defensive snaps.
The Bucs play again on Sunday Night Football in Las Vegas.
Austin Reiter- Kansas City Chiefs C
Reiter didn’t play a single snap in the Chiefs’ win over the Buffalo Bills. Reiter has 21 starts over the last two seasons for Kansas City. Reiter had been listed on the injury report with a knee injury earlier in the week, but he was expected to play.
Asked if change to Daniel Kilgore at center will be permanent, Andy Reid says it "probably will be this week." Suggest that Kilgore will get another start to let Austin Reiter rests the knee that has been bothering him.— Matt Derrick (@mattderrick) October 21, 2020
Kansas City takes on the Broncos
Marquez Valdes-Scantling- Green Bay Packers WR
MVS returned to Ray Jay last week to take on the Bucs, but the familiar surroundings didn’t spark a performance like we’re used to seeing from him in that building.
Valdes-Scantling caught three passes for 32 yards. He was targeted five times. The team had a rough day overall throwing the ball. MVS was the Packers’ second leading pass-catcher with those small numbers.
The Packers look to get back on track against the Texans this week.
D’Ernest Johnson- Cleveland Browns RB
Johnson got just four carries for one total yard in the Browns loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. He didn’t see any targets out of the backfield either.
He also put the ball on the ground once, but was able to recover his own fumble.
The Browns take on the Bengals on Sunday.
Deadrin Senat- Atlanta Falcons DT
Senat was active for the first time since week 2. However, he played sparingly, only getting in on four defensive snaps and one special teams play in the team’s win over the Vikings.
But hey! The Falcons finally won. Guess that means Senat should always be active, right?
The Falcons take on the Detroit Lions this week.
