Pro Dawgs In The NFL: Week Two Recap

Sep 22, 2021

Several former Huskies are now playing in the National Football League. Below is a look back at last week's games, presented by Toyota.


Five Huskies played in the Panthers 26-7 win over the Saints, including three defensive backs: Jordan Miller (Saints), Desmond Trufant (Saints) and Keith Taylor (Panthers). But is was a linebacker, Shaq Thompson (Panthers) that led the group in tackles with four. Dwayne Washington (Saints) also saw action on special teams with the Saints ... Greg Gaines and Taylor Rapp were each credited with half a sack in the LA Rams win over the Colts. Rapp had eight total tackles and Gaines two ... Cory Littleton had five tackles as the Raiders moved to 2-0 on the season ... Levi Onwuzurike made two tackles in his NFL debut for the Lions, but it was Kevin King on the other side for the Packers that had the last laugh collecting four tackles, a pass defense and quarterback hit in the Monday Night Football win.

Budda Baker is ALWAYS ready. He had eight tackles and two tackles for loss in the Cardinals win over the Vikings.

Vita Vea makes the tip that leads to an interception and then he plays a little Johnny Be Good on the air guitar.

Elijah Molden made a triumphant return to Seattle, leaving Seahawks fans with some late Sunday indigestion.

Myles Gaskin with a X button move. Or was it an O button? Maybe a cheat code? No one knows.
