Cyclones in the NFL: Breece Hall puts league on notice

Welcome to Week 5 of the CycloneFanatic NFL Tracker. Sunday brought an explosive performance eventful day to former Cyclones making their marks in the league:

Breece Hall was coming off a matchup where he scored the game-winning touchdown for the Jets, and a Saturday spent at Jack Trice Stadium.

Sunday, he was putting the league on notice.

Hall finished with 197 yards – 100 through a pair of receptions and another 97 in the ground game.

Hall was one of three former Cyclones to record a touchdown on Sunday, which was kicked off by the Packers’ matchup in London in the A.M.

Allen Lazard took home four receptions and a touchdown score in the Packers’ loss overseas.

David Montgomery completed the trifecta in Minnesota, scoring the Bears’ first touchdown of the day and effectively starting the comeback that wound up short at the end of the day.

Montgomery finished with 20 yards rushing and 62 yards through the air on four receptions.

Kene Nwangwu had three kickoff returns in the Vikings’ third division win of the season on Sunday, going for 72 yards in the game.

Enyi Uwazurike earned his first tackle of his NFL career in his first game in action for Denver Thursday, finishing with three tackles in the game.

Brock Purdy made his NFL debut coming in to kneel the football in the San Francisco 49ers’ win over Carolina. It’s fitting that it came in October.

Jake Hummel didn’t record a stat in the Rams-Cowboys game on Sunday, but him and Purdy got together for a post-game picture on Monday night a week ago (which didn’t make the blog because it comes out on Monday’s so here it is).

The Baltimore Ravens signed A.J. Klein to play linebacker this week, but he was inactive on Sunday.
