Northwestern in the NFL, Week 11

Green Bay was on a bye, so it’s a lighter roundup this week.

We’re nearing Thanksgiving, which means Sundays are getting even more important as teams begin the playoff push. Here’s a look at how some former ‘Cats played in Week 11:

Anthony Walker Jr. - LB, Indianapolis Colts

Walker and the Colts emerged with a key victory over division foe Jacksonville. Indy’s defense, anchored by the third-year pro and his four tackles and one pass breakup, allowed just 278 yards of total offense and 13 points on the day.

Sherrick McManis - DB, Chicago Bears

McManis logged one tackle on special teams in what was another Northwestern-like showing for the Bears, who fell to the Rams on Sunday night.

Austin Carr - WR, New Orleans Saints

Carr was inactive for the fourth time this season, and his 2019 catch total remains at one.

Joe Jones - LB, Denver Broncos

In his third game back from injury, Jones played 23 snaps on special teams and made one tackle as the Broncos blew a 20-point lead in a heartbreaking loss to the Vikings.

Ifeadi Odenigbo - DE, Minnesota Vikings

For the second straight week, the second-year defensive lineman made just one tackle, but at a crucial time. His stop of Devontae Booker forced a field goal attempt that kicker Brandon McManus missed, and the Vikings took the lead for good on the next drive.

Justin Jackson - RB, Los Angeles Chargers

The ballcarrier was sidelined once again with a calf injury in LA’s loss to the Chiefs in Mexico City.

Practice Squad Members: Clayton Thorson, QB, Dallas Cowboys; Blake Hance, OT, Jacksonville Jaguars; Montre Hartage, S, Miami Dolphins
