Iowa Hawkeyes in the NFL: Week 4 Results

New, 1 comment

The usual suspects showed up in NFL box scores over the weekend.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Another week of NFL action has come and gone and we saw the usual handful of former Hawkeyes make their weekly contributions to their efforts of their respective teams. Here is what we saw from our former boys in black and gold over the weekend.

A.J. Derby, Tight End, Broncos

Derby caught four passes for 75 yards and one touchdown to help Denver defeat the Oakland Raiders 16-10.

Christian Kirksey, Linebacker, Browns

Kirksey was once again all over the field for Cleveland in yet another losing effort. He logged eight tackles in a 31-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Karl Klug, Defensive Lineman, Titans

Klug got in on two tackles, but it didn’t appear to help a whole lot. Tennessee was throttled by the Houston Texans 57-14.

Desmond King, Defensive Back, Chargers

King continues to contribute for L.A. every time he gets on the field. He logged three tackles and defended a pass in a 26-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

George Kittle, Tight End, 49ers

Kittle got a couple of targets and was able to haul in two passes for a total of 35 yards in San Francisco’s 18-15 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Micah Hyde, Defensive Back, Buffalo Bills

No former Hawkeye stood out more than Hyde over the weekend. He was instrumental in helping Buffalo pull of a big upset over the Atlanta Falcons, 23-17. Hyde has seven tackles, defended two passes and logged two interceptions. He is having a stellar season and has been Buffalo’s best defensive player in 2017.

Adrian Clayborn, Defensive Tackle, Falcons

On the flip side of what Hyde did, Clayborn logged only a single tackle for Atlanta.

LINEMAN LOVE:

Brandon Scherff, Guard, Redskins

On Monday Night Football against the Chiefs, Scherff helped keep Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins clean all night. The Redskin offensive line did not allow a single sack against one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL, despite losing the game 29-20.

INJURY UPDATE:

Green Bay defensive tackle Mike Daniels was apparently very close to being able to play last Thursday against the Bears. It sounds like the Packers are optimistic that he will be able to go in Week 5 when Green Bay travels to take on the Dallas Cowboys.
