It is now week 13 of the NFL season, which has officially entered its final month before the playoffs, and as usual, we have a lot to talk about regarding the Pro Dawgs, so let’s get right into it, with Thursday’s game. Amazon Prime finally saw an above average game as the Seahawks traveled to Arlington to take on the Cowboys. Despite being targeted twice, Will Dissly couldn’t haul in a catch, and the Seahawks fell to the Cowboys, 41-35.
Moving on to the Sunday morning slate, it was a thriller in Nashville as the Titans took on the Colts. Elijah Molden had a strong showing, recording 2 tackles, both solo, plus a fumble recovery (your pro Dawg play of the week), but that wasn’t enough for the Titans, as they fell 31-28 in overtime. It was the exact opposite of a shootout in Foxborough, as the Pats hosted the Chargers. Myles Bryant recorded 3 tackles, all solo, with a pass deflection. Weather conditions largely stifled both offenses, as the Chargers prevailed 6-0.
Due to multiple weather delays, the Steelers and Cardinals game bled into the afternoon window, so I’m counting it as a morning game. Budda Baker continued his incredibly productive run against Pittsburgh, recording 8 tackles, 6 solo, and 2 of them for loss, as the Cardinals pulled off a shocking victory, 24-10.
Moving to Tampa, as the Bucs took on the Panthers, we had pro Dawgs on both teams. For the Bucs, Vita Vea had 2 tackles, 1 solo, and Joe Tryon-Shoyinka had 4 tackles, 1 solo. Cade Otton didn’t have a target on offense, despite playing. For the Panthers, safety Alex Cook made his third appearance of the season, recording 1 solo tackle, as the Bucs emerged victorious, 21-18.
The Rams hosted the Browns in the last afternoon game to feature pro Dawgs. The Rams continued their offensive onslaught for the second straight week, putting up 36 points on Cleveland. A key piece of that offensive explosion was Puka Nacua, who, in addition to catching 4 balls for 105 yards and a touchdown, also ran twice for 34 yards. Los Angeles reigned victorious over Cleveland, and they have won 3 straight.
On Sunday Night Football the Packers hosted the Chiefs at Lambeau Field. Trent McDuffie recorded 5 tackles (2 solo) as the Chiefs fell to the Packers 27-19.
On Monday Night Football, Jake Browning, Drew Sample and the Bengals will try to steal one on the road against the 8-3 Jags in Jacksonville.
