Buckeyes in the NFL
By Scott Dame

If John Beck is the starting quarterback for the Redskins at the end of this season, he should send a thank-you tweet to Eagles safety Kurt Coleman.

Washington’s Rex Grossman threw four interceptions – three to Coleman – as Philadelphia defeated the ’Skins 20-13 on Sunday. Coleman, who attended Northmont High School in Dayton, became the first Eagle in 45 years to intercept three passes in one game. He also led Philly with seven tackles.

Beck entered the game for Grossman in the fourth quarter. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has yet to name a starter for Week 7.

Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk also had an interesting game on Sunday. Hawk, who played at Centerville High School in Kettering, led Green Bay with nine tackles as the Packers cruised past the Rams by the score of 24-3.

Hawk also recorded a crushing sack of Sam Bradford, but celebrated by jumping up and “flipping off” his own sideline. Hawk has apologized for the gesture, calling it a “running joke” among his teammates.

Coleman and Hawk are the your top two Buckeyes in the NFL for Week 6.

Below is a complete list of all former Buckeyes who play in the NFL and their Week 6 stats.
