USC in the NFL: Week 11

As the playoffs creep up, let’s see how our favorite former Trojans did in the NFL.

Robert Woods - Los Angeles Rams

Robert Woods is set to face-off tonight in the LA Coliseum as the 9-1 Rams host the 9-1 Chiefs in the biggest Monday Night Football game of the season thus far. Woods has not scored a touchdown since Week 4, but the Rams will need to put a lot of points on the board in order to beat the Chiefs.

Clay Matthews - Green Bay Packers

Clay Matthews had five tackles, including three solo and one for a loss against the Seattle Seahawks this past Thursday. The Packers were unable to come away with a win however, falling to 4-5-1 on the season. As Matthews gets up there in age, his chances of getting another crack at the Super Bowl appear to be slimming by the week.

Nelson Agholor - Philadelphia Eagles

Nelson Agholor had one of the more forgettable games of his young career yesterday. The Eagles lost big in New Orleans, 48-7, and Agholor was held without a catch. This was an uncharacteristically bad game by Carson Wentz and the Eagles, so expect them to bounce back this week as they host the New York Giants in Philadelphia.

Antwaun Woods - Dallas Cowboys

Antwaun Woods was held out of Sunday’s game against the Falcons with a concussion. Expect him to return to the lineup as soon as he is medically cleared.

Nickell Robey-Coleman - Los Angeles Rams

Nickell Robey-Coleman has a tough task tonight defending Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs offense. This is likely the final week the Rams will be without Aqib Talib, as they have a buy week next week, so this could be Robey-Coleman’s last opportunity to take advantage of the increased playing time. It will be a nationally televised game at the Coliseum, a stadium he is awfully familiar with, so hopefully he can put on a good showing.

Sam Darnold - New York Jets

Sam Darnold and the Jets had a much needed bye week in Week 11. They were smacked by the Buffalo Bills in their last game, and they have the New England Patriots up next. It is a home game however, and the Patriots are beatable when they are forced to travel from Gillette Stadium.

Adoree’ Jackson - Tennesse Titans

Adoree’ Jackson had an impressive nine total tackles against the Colts, but the Titans fell 38-10 as Andrew Luck tore apart the Titans’ defense with three touchdowns and just under 300 yards passing.

Buck Allen - Baltimore Ravens

Buck Allen had one carry for two yards, but the Ravens won 24-21 in Lamar Jackson’s first NFL start. At this point in the season, Allen’s frustration has to be growing with the amount of reps he is receiving. He has not scored a touchdown since Week 3 and his production appears to be declining.

Uchenna Nwosu - Los Angeles Chargers

Uchenna Nwosu had one tackle as the Chargers fell 23-22 to the Denver Broncos on a last second field goal. The Broncos are good at home, especially when the winter weather plays a role, however this was not the best game by the Chargers, as they do have the better roster. Expect them to bounce back next game.

JuJu Smith-Schuster - Pittsburgh Steelers

JuJu Smith-Schuster had eight receptions for 104 yards in a 20-16 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. This puts the Jaguars at 3-7 and unlikely to make the playoffs at this point in the season. Meanwhile, the Steelers are on a six game win steak and appear to be rolling despite the loss of Le’Veon Bell. Expect Smith-Schuster to keep balling his way into the AFC playoffs. This team would not be a bad mid season bet to make a Super Bowl run.
