It stings just a bit that the Ohio State Buckeyes weren’t playing in the College Football national championship game this week, but at least we still get to see some former Ohio State legends in action in the NFL. The college football season never ends with all the news and such, but we do enjoy some NFL action from time to time.

It is always ideal when we get to see former Buckeye stars shine in the NFL and accomplish their dreams. This list happens to be so large that we have to split the article in two and today we will focus on some recognizable offensive names.

The Dallas Cowboys destroyed the Philadelphia Eagles, 51-26, and Ezekiel Elliott had 18 carries for 87 yards and one reception for three yards.
