Wild Card weekend was anything but wild for your favorite former Hawkeyes. We saw only three of them play and just two of them log any stats.
Unfortunately, we also saw the best season of Micah Hyde’s career come to an end.
Here’s what went down over the weekend:
Micah Hyde, Defensive Back, Buffalo Bills
Hyde got in on four tackles before leaving the second half of Buffalo’s 10-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars with a concussion. It was — sadly — an unceremonious end to what was a phenomenal season for Hyde. Hopefully we’ll see him get plenty of action in the Pro Bowl.
Adrian Clayborn, Defensive Lineman, Atlanta Falcons
Clayborn had a quiet day as far a the stat-line went. He logged only a single tackle, but played well enough to help his Falcons take down the Los Angeles Rams 26-13. He was part of a solid effort from the Atlanta front-seven that limited the damage done by L.A. running back Todd Gurely, keeping him out of the end zone.
Clayborn and the Falcons will travel to Philadelphia this coming weekend to face the Eagles in the Divisional Round.
Karl Klug, Defensive Lineman, Tennessee Titans
Klug did not log any stats in Tennessee’s 22-21 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He and the Titans will travel to New England this weekend to take on Tom Brady and the defending World Champion Patriots in the Divisional Round.
The only other former Hawkeye who will see action in the Divisional round of the NFL Playoffs this coming weekend is Minnesota Vikings tackle Riley Reiff. His team will play host to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
