With the Cleveland Browns (Demetric Felton and Takkarist McKinley), Green Bay Packers (Krys Barnes, Kenny Clark and Marcedes Lewis) and Tennessee Titans (Jayon Brown) off due to byes, 13 former UCLA standouts were in action during Week 13 of the 2021 NFL season.

Off the field Tuesday, Bruins Anthony Barr of the Minnesota Vikings and Myles Jack of the Jacksonville Jaguars were named their teams' nominees for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award. Each year, one player receives what is considered the league's most prestigious honor for his excellence on and off the field. A $250,000 donation is made by the NFL Foundation and Nationwide to a charity of the winner's choice, while each of the other 31 candidates earns $40,000 to a charity of his choice.
