Coming into this week, I didn't think there would be too much content, since it was a bye week for a couple of Spartan alumni. The only big alum who played was Brian Hoyer, and his week ended badly.
Coming off of leading the Browns to two straight wins, Cleveland's new starting quarterback Brian Hoyer suited up for a Thursday Night Football game against the Buffalo Bills. It was early in the game, Hoyer was sitting at 2/4 and made a fateful decision to run for the first down. Unfortunately, he took a nasty hit from linebacker Kiko Alonso will sliding... and tore his ACL. Just like that, the Browns and Hoyer's hopes for a successful season were dashed. He is out for the year. Heartbreaking for the hometown kid who was making good.
Bengals' defensive tackle Domata Peko had two tackles in Cincinnati's game Sunday against the New England Patriots, adding to his combined season total and making it nine overall. He has 1.5 sacks this season.
Hopefully next week will be a more exciting week for Spartan alumni, because this week was a slow week.
