Each week after the NFL has completed its slate of games (starting with Thursday night football and ending after Monday night football) this series will take a look at news and statistics surrounding former Utah State Aggies players.
Bobby Wagner had nine total tackles (6 solo, 3 assist) and a tackle for a loss with a quarterback hit. Wagner also played on five special teams snaps and has 96 combined tackles (56 solo, 40 assist) and six tackles for loss.
Las Vegas Raiders
In a 35-31 loss to Kansas City, Nevin Lawson had 7 combined tackles (5 solo, 2 assist) and increased his playing production from 56% of snaps the week previous to 88% against the Chiefs. Lawson also played on 11 (42%) special teams snaps. This season, Lawson has 38 combined tackles (30 solo, 8 assist), two forced fumbles, three pass deflections, and a fumble recovery.
New York Giants
Kyle Fackrell and the New York Giants were on a bye week this week.
Los Angeles Chargers
Nick Vigil had one tackle on 12% of the defensive snaps and played on 20 special teams snaps (67% of the snaps) in a 34-28 win over the Jets.
Patrick Scales and the Bears last saw the field on Monday Night Football against the Vikings and Scales had eight snaps on special teams (31% of snaps). The Bears were on a bye week during week 11 and have their next game at the Packers.
In a game against the Lions, the Panthers won 20-0. Tyler Larsen only saw the field on special teams and played on 23% of those snaps, five special teams snaps. Larsen saw 4 snaps on offense last week so no snaps on offense this past weekend is a little drop off in production.
Kansas City Chiefs
Darwin Thompson hasn’t seen the field since week 8, where he had four carries for three yards. This season he has 13 rushes for 52 yards and though he hasn’t rushed for any touchdowns, he has rushed for four first downs.
Green Bay Packers
Jordan Love has yet to see the field yet this year but still remains active.
Game Ball #1
Bobby Wagner continues to put up large numbers of tackles as a starter on the Seahawks defense, this week with nine. The large number of tackles were no doubt instrumental in a 28-21 win against the Cardinals.
Game Ball #2
Nevin Lawson had 7 tackles in the loss to the Chiefs and only had 56% of the snaps on defense. He has improved his amount of playing time and has largely made the most of his opportunities on the field.
Game Ball #3
Nick Vigil gets the third game ball. Though he didn’t see much production on defense, he did play on a significant number of special teams snaps, 20, and has seen a large number of snaps on special teams throughout the season.
