USC in the NFL: Week 7

Here’s how some of our favorite former Trojans did with their NFL squads.

NFC

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Robert Woods - Los Angeles Rams

Once again, Robert Woods led the Rams receiving corps in yardage. Over the past two seasons, Woods has appeared to be Jared Goff’s most reliable target. He is a crucial element in one of the NFL’s most potent offenses, and it has been a lot of fun to watch. Yesterday, he finished with five receptions for 78 yards.

Ronald Jones - Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ronald Jones scored the first touchdown of his NFL career yesterday in a 26-23 overtime win over the Cleveland Browns. It was great to see Jones finally get the opportunity to play with six carries for 13 total yards. This was only the third game the rookie back has been active, so expect similar stats to the Ravens’ former Trojan back, “Buck” Allen, who is a power back specializing in goal line situations.

Nelson Agholor - Philadelphia Eagles

Nelson Agholor had a quiet game with six receptions for 20 yards, as the Eagles lost to the Panthers 21-17. This was a strange game, as the Eagles were leading 17-0 entering the fourth quarter. Expect a bounce back for the Eagles as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars next week.

Antwaun Woods - Dallas Cowboys

Antwaun Woods had a great game with five total tackles, in

cluding three solo tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss. This was his strongest game since earning a significant amount of playing time, but the Cowboys missed a field goal to tie the game in the last minute, falling to the Redskins 20-17.

Nickell Robey-Coleman - Los Angeles Rams

Nickell Robey-Coleman was not really challenged very much on Sunday with Jimmy Garoppolo out for the San Fransisco 49ers. However, he nearly had an interception as the Rams stomped the 49ers 39-10.

AFC

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at New York Jets Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Sam Darnold - New York Jets

Sam Darnold followed up his strong week last week with three interceptions on Sunday. The Jets fell 37-17 to the Minnesota Vikings and, as expected, Darnold’s inaugural NFL season continues to be inconsistent with a lot of ups and downs.

Adoree’ Jackson - Tennesse Titans

Adoree’ Jackson had three tackles as the Titans fell 20-19 to the Chargers. Like most Titans games, this game was quiet and there is not too much to talk about it here. Jackson continues to be a great addition to this defense, however.

Buck Allen - Baltimore Ravens

Buck Allen had three carriers for three yards, and three receptions for 21 yards. He appears to be more valuable as a pass catcher out of the backfield, opposed to a high usage ball carrier. The Ravens fell to the Saints 24-23 in a close game.

Uchenna Nwosu - LA Chargers

Uchenna Nwosu had a quiet day with one tackle, but it was a tackle for a loss. The Chargers played 20 different players on defensive snaps yesterday, so it will be interesting to see how Nwosu’s playing time stacks up the rest of the year, as he is still just a rookie.

JuJu Smith-Schuster - Pittsburgh Steelers

JuJu Smith-Schuster and the Steelers were on the couch this weekend, enjoying their bye-week. Expect a big game out of Smith-Schuster as the Steelers host Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.
