After a quiet Week 4, multiple former Auburn football players had impressive showings in Week 5 of the NFL season.
New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton raked in over half of the team's receiving yards in the team’s 37-34 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Slayton caught eight of his 11 targets for 129 yards, with his longest catch of the day going for 39-yards.
Slayton and the Giants face a tough matchup against the Washington Football Team next week, with Washington allowing the sixth-fewest passing yards in the NFL.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Carlton Davis led the team in tackles in Thursday night’s 20-19 loss to the Chicago Bears. Davis had seven tackles and an interception. He is tied for the league lead in interceptions with three on the year.
Former Auburn safety Jamel Dean recorded three total tackles for the Buccaneers.
Former Auburn defensive tackles Derrick Brown and Marlon Davidson took the field against each other for the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons, respectively. Brown continued to eat up double teams, and Davidson batted down a pass.
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Josh Bynes had eight tackles in the team’s 27-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
