Week six of the NFL season is here and it was just another week of former Rebs toying with NFL defensive ends and defensive backs. 26 Landsharks dot NFL rosters, here’s how they did.

DK Metcalf keeps showing that three-cone drills don’t make tackles in the NFL. Neither do the cornerbacks covering him, as he had four catches for 69 yards (lol) and more than a couple missed tackles in a 32-28 Seattle win.

Evan Engram missed the Giants 35-14 loss to the Patriots but returned to the practice field Tuesday and expects to play Sunday against Arizona.

Greg Little also missed his second consecutive game for the Panthers. Ron Rivera confirmed the rookie is still in concussion protocol. Marquis Haynes registered a tackle in Carolina’s 37-26 win over Tampa Bay.

The Texans franchise left tackle continues showing the country what the entire Ole Miss fan base has known for years. Laremy Tunsil helped Deshaun Watson throw for 280 yards, and A.J. Moore had a tackle in a 31-24 Texans win in Kansas City.

Laquon Treadwell had his first reception since the Vikings cut and subsequently re-signed the wide receiver during the off season. His catch went for 15 yards and the Vikings won 38-20 over the Eagles.

The 49ers defense dominated the Rams 20-7, and D.J. Jones had the best game of his career with four tackles, three of them solo. He came up limp late in the game with an injury to his hamstring, but he is day-to-day entering week seven.

Brandon Bolden keeps racking up touchdowns. This week he had three carries for 23 yards, with a long of 21. The Pats are 6-0 and marching towards another Super Bowl appearance.

The Titans offense was anemic in a 16-0 loss in Denver. A.J. Brown’s two receptions for 23 yards weren’t enough to let Marcus Mariota keep his job, as Ryan Tannehill took over early in the second half.

Mike Hilton had three tackles for the Steelers in a 24-17 win against the Chargers, but Hilton’s best coverage all night was the space owned in Philip Rivers’ dome.

Jordan Wilkins and Dawson Knox were on a bye, as were Bobby Massie and Bradley Sowell with the Chicago Bears.

The NFL isn’t the only place where former Rebs showed out this week. Jordan Ta’amu was selected as a franchise quarterback with the St. Louis BattleHawks of the XFL. The season will begin the week after the Super Bowl.

OUR SON! Congrats, Jordan, light ‘em up.
