Here’s how Northwestern alumni fared in the pros this weekend.
Trevor Siemian, Broncos
To put it simply, Trevor Siemian was fantastic for the Broncos. Despite being under pressure from the Chiefs’ defensive front for much of the game, Siemian threw for 368 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. After going down 16-10, Siemian led the Broncos down the field for two scores, including a 76-yard touchdown pass to Bennie Fowler to put the Broncos up 24-16. Unfortunately, the Chiefs were able to score with 12 seconds remaining and went on to win the game in overtime despite Siemian’s efforts. Denver had a chance to win the game, but Brandon McManus missed a 62-yard field goal and the Chiefs promptly drove back down the field to win 30-27.
But Trevor was still great. Just look at these highlights!
Zach Strief, Saints
The Saints obliterated the Rams by the score of 49-21, and Zach Strief was on the field for the entire game on offense. Strief continues to play very well and could very well make an All-Pro team.
Dan Vitale, Browns
Vitale caught his first pass in the NFL on Sunday against the New York Giants. Sadly, the play went for negative yardage and the Browns lost yet again. The winless season is very much in play.
Ibraheim Campbell, Browns
Campbell received zero snaps on defense yet again for the Browns. He appears to be getting phased out.
Sherrick McManis, Bears
McManis played 22 snaps on special teams against the Titans. McManis did not record a tackle and the Bears fell 27-21 to the Titans.
Dean Lowry, Packers
Lowry once again did not see much playing time in the Packers’ 27-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Brian Peters, Texans
Peters made one tackle on special teams in his second game back for the Texans. Houston lost to the Chargers 21-13.
