Auburn in the NFL: Week 6 rundown

Jamel Dean recorded an interception for the second straight week. C.J. Uzomah caught another touchdown. And Josh Bynes showed he’s still got it with an impressive performance to lead the Baltimore Ravens’ defense. That and more in this week’s Auburn in the NFL rundown. 

BEST OF WEEK 6

Josh Bynes, LB, Baltimore Ravens
Back with his original team in Baltimore, the 11th-year undrafted free agent made his first start of the season Sunday and finished with a team-high six tackles, including a tackle for loss, in a 34-6 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Bynes also added a pass deflection. He earned an overall PFF grade of 76.1, fifth highest on the team. Bynes, who played his first three NFL seasons with the Ravens, earned high praise from head coach John Harbaugh. 

“It just kind of settled everybody into a good place where they could take a deep breath and just play football,” Harbaugh said when asked about Bynes starting. “The tackling was better. The assignments were better. The fits were better. Everything was just more settled down.” 

Jamel Dean, CB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Dean made it back-to-back weeks with an interception, picking off quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second quarter of Thursday night’s victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. It was one of four passes defended in the game for Dean who now has seven on the season. The third-year cornerback put his goals for the season on a white board prior to the first game. On that board is his goal of five interceptions. He now has two through the first six games. 

C.J. Uzomah, TE, Cincinnati Bengals 
After missing almost all of last year with an Achilles injury, Uzomah has come back to be a bright spot for the Cincinnati offense. The seventh-year tight end caught another touchdown, a 4-yard grab in the fourth quarter, to help the Bengals beat the Detroit Lions. The touchdown made it three on the season, which ranks fourth in the league for tight ends. Uzomah has already matched his career high for touchdowns in a season.
