#HTownTakeover in the NFL - Week 16

Dec. 27, 2017

HOUSTON -- With 13 alums on NFL rosters in the 16th week of NFL action, the #HTownTakeover is well represented across the league. Take a look around the league to see how they performed...

Linebacker Tyus Bowser was active but did not record any stats in Baltimore’s 23-16 win over the Colts. Bowser and the Ravens could advance to the playoffs with a win over Cincinnati or a loss by the Bills or Titans.

Los Angeles’ Kenneth Farrow is on the Injured/Reserve list due to an ankle injury.

Cornerback D.J. Hayden had one tackle and one pass breakup in Detroit’s 26-17 loss at Cincinnati. Hayden has potentially one last game with the Lions as he’s eligible to hit free agency this offseason.

Cornerback William Jackson III had a game-high three pass breakups to go along with one tackle in the Bengals’ 26-17 win over Detroit. Jackson was part of a secondary that held Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford to only 203 yards on 19-of-35 passing as he took over a starting corner role with 62 snaps played.

Quarterback Case Keenum led Minnesota to an NFC North title as the Vikings shutout the Green Bay Packers, 16-0. Keenum was 14-of-25 passing for 139 yards and one touchdown. Keenum will take Minnesota into week 17 knowing a win over Chicago would clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs.

Defensive end Cameron Malveaux had two solo tackles, including one for a loss, in Miami’s 29-13 loss at chilly Kansas City.

Defensive tackle Joey Mbu had one stop for Indianapolis in the Colts’ 23-16 loss at Baltimore.

Linebacker Elandon Roberts had six total tackles including a half tackle for loss in the Patriots’ 37-16 win over Buffalo. Roberts and New England have clinched a first-round bye and will look to secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs in Week 17 when they take on the New York Jets. A win, or a Steelers loss to Cleveland, would secure home-field advantage for the Patriots.

Cincinnati defensive back Brandon Wilson had two tackles, one of which was solo, on 22 special teams snaps in the Bengals’ 26-17 win over Detroit.

Cleveland’s Howard Wilson has been sidelined since the beginning of rookie camp with a broken kneecap and is currently on the Browns' Physically Unable to Perform list. Wilson was able to avoid surgery.


On Monday, another #HTownTakeover alum made the move from a practice squad to a 53-man roster as linebacker Derrick Mathews was promoted to the New York Giants' active roster.

The following #HTownTakeover alums are currently on practice squads around the league:
Demarcus Ayers, Chicago Bears
Greg Ward Jr., Philadelphia Eagles
