NFL: New England Patriots at Los Angeles Chargers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Week 13

Los Angeles Chargers

In a 45-0 loss to New England, Nick Vigil registered nine tackles, three solo six assist, and also had a tackle for loss. He played on 91% of the defensive snaps, the most playing time he has seen this season, and six special teams snaps (23%). The past two weeks Vigil has seen more and more playing time and that looks to be a trend that continues going forward.

Seattle Seahawks

Bobby Wagner posted six tackles, three solo three assist, and also had a tackle for loss and a pass deflection. He played on 56 defensive snaps (100%) and four special teams snaps (17%) in a 17-12 loss to the Giants.

Las Vegas Raiders

Nevin Lawson saw a reduction in the number of snaps but an increase in the percentage of snaps in a 31-28 win over the Jets where he had three tackles. He also saw time on special teams where he played on eight snaps (31%).

New York Giants

The Giants won a close game against the Bengals, 19-17, and Kyler Fackrell had two tackles, a solo and an assist and a quarterback hit. Fackrell also played one snap on special teams. He played on 23 (47%) defensive snaps.

Chicago Bears

The Bears lost to the Lions 34-30 and Patrick Scales played on nine special teams snaps (30%). He has made one tackle this season.

Carolina Panthers

Tyler Larsen and the Panthers were on a BYE week this week.

Kansas City

The Chiefs picked up a 22-16 win over the Broncos and Darwin Thompson saw 10 snaps (40%) on special teams. He has not seen any playing time at running back since week 8.

Green Bay Packers

Jordan Love has not made an appearance yet this season.

Game Balls

Game Ball #1

While the Chargers really had a bad game in a 45-0 blowout loss, Nick Vigil was a bright spot. He was able to register more tackles this week than in previous weeks and also had more playing time.

Game Ball #2

Bobby Wagner may not have put up his normal numbers but still played on every defensive snap and registered a tackle for a loss and a pass deflection in addition to six tackles.

Game Ball #3

Nevin Lawson gets game ball #3 for seeing an increase in his playing time despite the decrease in the number of snaps that the Raiders defense played and registered two tackles and a quarterback hit on the improved playing time.
