Spartans in the NFL - Week 4

Jamie McDonald

During the offseason, there was debate over whether or not a Michigan State quarterback should be starting for an NFL team, but it's another one who has come out of nowhere to make a difference.

Kirk Cousins is still behind Robert Griffin III in Washington, but Brian Hoyer has taken over for the tanking Browns, and has them not tanking. Let's take a look at how some Spartans did in the NFL's Week 4.

Brian Hoyer

One week after beating the Vikings in the final minute, Hoyer went 25-for-38 for 269 yards and two touchdowns as the Browns defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 17-6. The Browns are now 2-2 (2-0 with Hoyer and since trading Trent Richardson) and tied for first place in the AFC North. Can Hoyer keep it up? Who knows, but it's nice to see the hometown kid start for his team and lead them to victories. It's also a good reminder how well the Dantonio staff has done training quarterbacks in the past, specifically Dave Warner.

Le'Veon Bell

After dealing with some injuries, Bell made his NFL debut in London, rushing for 57 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries.

Domata Peko

The Bengals defensive tackle had four tackles against the Browns.

Keshawn Martin

Martin had one catch for six yards for the Texas. He was targeted six times.

Brandon Fields

Fields had four punts for the Dolphins on Monday night, with an average of 52 yards. #PunterU
