The Ohio State Buckeyes earned a close win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday to the tune of 26-17. The Buckeyes were less than spectacular, but keep themselves in the thick of the College Football Playoff hunt and this is especially true considering the struggles for some programs at the top of the polls.

Enough about dwelling on Saturday. It’s time to take a look into how some of our favorite former Buckeyes are competing in the NFL for their current teams. The list of former Ohio State stars in the NFL is long and we have to split this list into two with this version focusing on the former offensive stars.

Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

The Cleveland Browns absolutely dominated the Cincinnati Bengals, 41-16, and the picture above summarizes Joe Burrow’s day perfectly. Burrow was 28 of 40 for 282 yards and two interceptions.

Carlos Hyde, Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled off the upset of the week as they defeated the Buffalo Bills, 9-6, and Carlos Hyde was a big reason why with 21 carries for 67 yards.

Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys were upset by the Denver Broncos, 30-16, and Ezekiel Elliott led the Cowboys in rushing with ten carries for 51 yards. But … it wasn’t enough.
