It was a great opening week of the NFL season for former Big Ten players.
J.J. Watt (Wisconsin), as usual, absolutely dominated the line of scrimmage, registering two sacks, one without his helmet, and six (!) tackles for loss in Houston's 27-20 loss to Kansas City.
Want more? There's a lot more.
Here you go: Tom Brady (Michigan) threw for 288 yards and four touchdowns; Ameer Abdullah (Nebraska) ran for a highlight-reel touchdown on his first NFL carry; Ricardo Allen (Purdue) caught a game-sealing interception in his first start; Carlos Hyde (Ohio State) ran for for 168 yards and two touchdowns.
Watch all of the best Week 1 Big Ten highlights below:
Tom Brady (Michigan) throws one of his four TD passes.
J.J. Watt (Wisconsin) loses helmet but still records the sack.
Brian Hartline (Ohio State) makes ridiculous one-handed catch.
Lance Kendricks (Wisconsin) catches 37-yard touchdown pass.
Ameer Abdullah (Nebraska) runs for TD on his first NFL carry.
Abdullah does damage in the passing game, too.
Ricardo Allen (Purdue) hauls in game-sealing interception.
Carlos Hyde (Ohio State) pulls off fancy spin move on first of two TD runs.
And Hyde's second touchdown run.
17 yards. 6 points. And a leap into the stands for good measure.— NFL (@NFL) September 15, 2015
