Game Ball #1
Nick Vigil gets the first game ball for a nice performance against the Bills even though he only saw just over 60% of the snaps.
Game Ball #2
Bobby Wagner had five tackles which was a reduction from the numbers he usually puts up but among former Aggies in the NFL, it was a decent performance.
Game Ball #3
Nevin Lawson saw a reduction in the number of snaps he has seen throughout the season. Considering he was further down the depth chart and he has seen quite a lot of playing time this season, he has done a nice job of earning his playing time.
