NFL Week 2: A look at the Beavs around the league

It was another fun Sunday of football in Week 2 of the NFL, and just like last week the Beavers represented well. Let's take a look around the league and see how the Pro Beavs did. 


Jordan Poyer - Bills: Poyer had two tackles and a pass deflection. It was another solid game from the Bills star defender. He put the defense on his back and down the stretch and laid out to grab the game-sealing interception.

Brandin Cooks and Johnny Hekker - Rams: Johnny Hekker did what Johnny Hekker does - He punts the ball, and he punts it well. Hekker punted four times with a long punt of 66 yards, and a 49.8 yard average on the day. His teammate Brandin Cooks played well, too. He was targeted just four times but turned that into three catches for 74 yards and a score. 

Steven Nelson - Steelers: - Nelson was one of the best players on the defensive side of the ball for the Steelers in their 28-26 loss to the Seahawks. Nelson had six tackles, five solos, and a pass deflection.

As for Brandin Cooks, he had just two catches on the night for 36 total yards, but his 24-yard reception was the longest passing play of the game.

OREGON DUCKS

Marcus Mariota: Tennessee Titans

Kenjon Barner: Atlanta Falcons

Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner: San Francisco 49ers

Run Josh Allen, run!

This season has been quite the season for the Bills. One week they are getting completely shut out by the Packers and then the next doing the destruction on the Vikings. Today vs. the New York Jets, rookie quarterback Josh Allen got it going in the ground game. 

In his rookie season, Allen breaks Michael Vick’s record for quarterback rushing yards in just three games.

Allen recorded 87 yards on the ground in the first half vs. the Jets with totals 321 over the past three games. Despite losing 27-23 to the Jets at home, this is just Allen's first season and things may just start to get better in Buffalo.

Up next the Bills (4-9) host the visiting Detroit Lions (4-8) next Sunday.
