It’s been a tough year for the Detroit Lions but former Penn State cornerback Amani Oruwariye has been one of the bright spots.
Oruwariye snagged another interception on Sunday in the Lions’ loss to the Bengals. He picked off Joe Burrow toward the end of the first quarter and returned the ball 18 yards.
That now gives him three interceptions on the season, which is a career-high and also ties him for second-most in the NFL this season.
Pat Freiermuth, Tight End, Pittsburgh Steelers
It was a season-best showing for Pat Freiermuth as the Steelers picked up a narrow overtime win against Seattle on Sunday Night Football.
Freiermuth caught seven catches for 58 yards.
Hopefully this means he starts to get more and more involved in the Steelers offense moving forward.
Mike Gesicki, Tight End, Miami Dolphins
Speaking of former Penn State tight ends with a season-best showing on Sunday, Mike Gesicki balled out for Miami in an otherwise pretty poor afternoon for the Dolphins.
Despite the team’s loss to the previously winless Jaguars, Gesicki caught eight passes for 115 yards.
With Tua Tagovailoa back at quarterback we should see more performances like this from Gesicki in the games ahead.
