Drew Lock returns, Albert O debuts in Broncos’ win
Usually every Monday morning, I use the links post to gather the previous day’s NFL scores and single out former Tigers in the NFL. Because the news cycle was (understandably) light on Missouri news this weekend, we’re bumping it to the top this week.
- Drew Lock returned from an early season injury and looked... not great, but good enough to lead the Denver Broncos to a win over the New England Patriots. And with tight end Noah Fant out with an injury, Albert Okwuegbunam made his NFL debut catching 2 passes for 45 yards.

- The Cleveland Browns got curb-stomped by the Steelers, though Sheldon Richardson did his best in the effort by putting up 4 tackles.
- No tackles for Markus Golden in the Giants’ win over Washington, but he did have a QB hit and a pass defended.
- Charles Harris only logged one tackle in the Atlanta Falcons’ first win of the season over the Minnesota Vikings.
The final player to keep an eye on is the Cowboys’ Aldon Smith, who will have the unenviable job of chasing down Kyler Murray on Monday Night Football.
