After a basketball win on Friday evening and the big Governor’s Cup victory over the Dirty Birds, the NFL ‘Cats continued the momentum with some big games today across the league. Headlined by Benny Snell’s first career touchdown and a record-setting effort from Josh Allen, Kentucky had 10 guys active during Week 13.
Benny Snell Jr. (Pittsburgh Steelers)
Snell recorded his first career touchdown in the National Football League this afternoon as the Steelers defeated the Cleveland Browns 20-13. He rushed 16 times for 63 yards to go along with his trip to the end zone. The Steelers have turned to Benny as their featured running back the last two weeks and have two victories to show for it.

Bud Dupree (Pittsburgh Steelers)
While Benny Snell did work offensively, Bud Dupree continued to hold things down defensively for the Steelers. Dupree recorded 6 tackles including 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble this afternoon as Pittsburgh picked up the 20-13 victory. He also got a pass deflection and two quarterback hits.

Josh Allen (Jacksonville Jaguars)
Allen recorded a sack and six tackles overall in the Jaguars ugly 28-11 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That sack was Allen’s 9th of the season which breaks the Jacksonville Jaguars franchise record for single-season sacks by a rookie.
#Jaguars DE Josh Allen on breaking the rookie sack record: “It doesn’t mean anything, especially not today. It’s good that I accomplished it, but that wasn’t my end goal. I’m just trying to win the game.”

Corey Peters (Arizona Cardinals)
Peters recorded a single tackle in the Cardinals 34-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Randall Cobb (Dallas Cowboys)
In the Cowboys Thanksgiving Day defeat at the hands of the Buffalo Bills, Randall Cobb caught 3 passes for 53 yards. Cobb has already surpassed his reception total from 2018 and has seemed to continue to build his relationship with Dak Presscott as the season has gone on.
Za’Darius Smith (Green Bay Packers)
Smith recorded four tackles, including one tackle for loss, as the Packers defeated the New York Giants 31-13. Though he didn’t record a sack, Smith was making a living in the Giants backfield causing havoc with five hits on the quarterback.
The Packers defense generated pressure on 43% of dropbacks vs Daniel Jones, with three different players finishing with 5+ pressures for the first time this season:

Larry Worford (New Orleans Saints)
Worford and the offensive line unit didn’t allow a sack this afternoon as the Saints defeated the Falcons 26-18 to move to 10-2 on the season. Despite the victory, it was a pretty slow day for the New Orleans offense as they only totaled 289 yards.
Wesley Woodyard (Tennessee Titans)
After trailing 17-7 early in the 3rd quarter, the Titans come roaring back in Indianapolis this afternoon to defeat the Colts 31-17. Woodyard recorded one tackle in the game.
Mike Edwards (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
Edwards continued his strong play recording 3 tackles, including one for a loss, in the Bucs 28-11 victory over Josh Allen and the Jaguars.
Lonnie Johnson Jr. (Houston Texans)
Johnson had a great game recording 6 tackles and 1 pass deflection in the Texans 28-22 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. The 2nd Round Pick has been solid all season in the Houston secondary and has helped them to a one game advantage atop the AFC South standings with 4 weeks remaining in the season.
