Another weekend of NFL action is down, and some of your favorite former Iowa Hawkeyes had nice outings during Week 10. Among the highlights were a career day from Adrian Clayborn, C.J. Beathard’s first win as an NFL starter and C.J. Fiedorowicz returning from injury.
Let’s take a look.
Adrian Clayborn, Defensive Lineman, Atlanta Falcons
Clayborn was a beast and the catalyst for Atlanta’s 27-7 blowout win over the Dallas Cowboys. He logged six sacks, got in on six tackles and forced two fumbles. His big-time day earned him some big-time money as well:
This is called a great day at the office: Falcons DE Adrian Clayborn’s 6 sacks Sunday earned him a $750,000 incentive, per source. Clayborn has a $750K incentive for eight sacks in season and he entered game with two. Two more gets him $1.25 million. Cha-Ching.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 13, 2017
Here’s all his sacks for good measure:
Micah Hyde, Defensive Back, Buffalo Bills
Hyde got in on eight tackles in Buffalo’s 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints
Mike Daniels, Defensive Lineman, Green Bay Packers
Daniels had a solid outing in Green Bay’s 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears. He got in on five tackles and logged a sack.
Christian Kirksey, Linebacker, Cleveland Browns
Kirksey did what Kirksey does, continuing his run as one of the best tacklers in the NFL. He logged seven tackles and a sack in a 38-24 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Desmond King, Defensive Back, Los Angeles Chargers
King had one of his better games so far as a pro. He got in on five tackles and logged a sack. He also returned three kicks for 60 yards in L.A.’s 20-17 overtime loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
C.J. Fiedorowicz, Tight End, Houston Texans
C.J. took the field for the first time since September. He hauled in two passes for ten yards in Houston’s 33-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Anthony Hitchens, Linebackers, Dallas Cowboys
Hitchens was one of few bright spots for the Cowboys in their 27-7 loss to the Falcons. He logged ten total tackles in the game.
C.J. Beathard, Quarterback, San Francisco 49ers
Beathard logged his first win as an NFL starter and looked pretty good doing it. He went 19 of 25 for 288 yards, two touchdowns and one interception through the air. He also ran it five times for 15 yards and scored on the ground in San Fran’s 31-21 win over the New York Giants.
Riley Reiff, Offensive Tackle, Minnesota Vikings
Reiff was part of an offensive line unit that did not allow a sack in Minnesota’s 38-30 win over the Washington Redskins.
