The Ohio State Buckeyes are coming off an insanely impressive victory over a top ten ranked Michigan State Spartans in which the Buckeyes rolled, 56-7, and now we are on to face The Team Up North. With the Michigan Wolverines also ranked inside the top ten, this is sure to be a game for the ages.

Now I don’t want to just jump into rivalry week, I want to take Sunday to do what we do every week and reflect on the success of all of the former Ohio State stars playing in the NFL. This list is so big we have to split it into two and this list will dive into the offensive portion first.

The Cincinnati Bengals had a successful week as they dominated the Las Vegas Raiders, 32-13, and Joe Burrow was a big reason why — completing 20-of-29 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown.

Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears had a rough outing, losing to the Baltimore Ravens 16-13. Justin Fields was limited to four completions off of 11 attempts for just 79 yards. He also rushed four times for 23 yards.

The Dallas Cowboys lost the Kansas City Chiefs, 19-9, and Ezekiel Elliott had a shortened day due to injury. As a result, he only had nine carries for 32 yards, and six receptions for 36 yards.
