National Football League Pokes

It's been a tough year for former Pokes in the NFL.

Dez doing Dez things is one of the few positives for former Pokes in the Pros.

Joseph Randle Update:

In case you haven't heard Joseph Randle was released by the Dallas Cowboys on November 3, and on November 10, the news dropped that Randle is suspended from the NFL for four games for a domestic dispute he had in February. His season is over but let's hope his career isn't.

Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant (WR) - Bryant returned from his Kevin Durant fith metatarsal foot injury (maybe a bit too soon) to post a sad two catch, 12 yard performance against Seattle in week eight, but followed it up with a salty five catch, 104 yard, one touchdown roasting of the Philadelphia Eagles in week nine. Here's his circus catch on a medicine ball tossed by Matt Cassel:

Dez landed awkwardly on his left leg during the catch but should be ready to roll for week 10's matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Dan Bailey (K) - Bailey is a perfect 16-for-16 on the season(!). He went two-for-two in Sunday Night's matchup with the Eagles. Bailey is rewarding the Cowboys who signed him to a six-year, $22.5 million extension this offseason. This is pretty good:

Tyler Patmon (CB) - Patmon had been inactive the last two games before getting the call on Sunday Night against Philly. However Patmon didn't record a single stat. Let's hope Patmon is able to string together a few starts and get on a roll like he had last year.

Tennessee Titans

Perrish Cox (CB) - Cox had missed week's seven and eight with a hamstring issue but returned to help the Titans beat the Saints 34-28 in overtime. Cox registered two tackles in the win. Cox had this to say after the Pokes win against TCU Saturday:

New Orleans Saints

Kevin Williams (DT) - Williams was on the flip side of fellow Poke Perrish Cox's victory, losing in overtime to the Titans 34-28. Williams recorded six tackles in the loss and is up to 19 tackles on the season. In case you were wondering, Williams is still destroying offensive lineman:

Cleveland Browns

Justin Gilbert (CB) - Gilbert and the Browns continued to struggle as they took a 31-10 beating on Thursday Night Football. Gilbert was on the field for 20 snaps this game which is a trend in the right direction for the former first round pick. He recorded a tackle and also had an ill-advised 13 yard kick return.
