Northwestern NFL recap: Week 10

Touchdown Trevor is 7-2 as a starter. Everyone else lost.

NFL: Denver Broncos at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Here’s what all the former Wildcats did in Week 10 of NFL action:

Trevor Siemian, Broncos QB

The Broncos won on a ridiculous blocked PAT that was returned for two points, but Trevor played his part in securing a Denver victory. Although his 258-yard, 2 TD, 2 INT performance against a bad Saints defense was not great, he did just enough to get the Broncos back into the game and in a position for the craziness that was the ending of their 25-23 win. Siemian was limited by yet another abysmal offensive line performance and will certainly look forward to a bye week this weekend.

Here are his highlights, which are always fun to watch.

Dan Vitale, Browns TE/FB

Vitale continued to play a role in the Browns backfield against the Ravens on Thursday night. Although the Browns lost (again), Vitale played on 18 percent of snaps. He was mostly used as a blocker.

Ibraheim Campbell, Browns S

Another week, another loss for Ibraheim Campbell. Campbell had 4 solo tackles and played on 78 percent of the team’s snaps, but the Browns still lost 28-7 and are now 0-10 with a very real shot at joining the 2008 Lions in winless infamy.

Dean Lowry, Packers DE

The Titans put up 47 points in a demolition of the Packers, but it wasn’t the fault of Dean Lowry, who only saw the field for five plays. #FreeDean2016

Zach Strief, Saints T

Strief went up against Touchdown Trevor and lost. The outcome of the game was far from his fault—Strief played on every snap yet again for New Orleans—but the Saints could not figure out how to successfully execute an extra point.

Sherrick McManis - Bears CB

The Bears are very bad, but Sherrick McManis played 93 percent of special teams snaps in their 36-10 loss to the Buccaneers. Seriously though, I don’t know where the Bears go from here. Alshon Jeffery has received a four-game suspension for PEDs, Jay Cutler returned to his interception-throwing ways on Sunday, and the team can’t stop anybody. On the bright side, McManis looks like he has a solid gig locked down on special teams.
