Week 9: Buckeyes in the NFL

Weekly review of Buckeyes in the NFL.

Out of the 32 teams in the NFL, 24 of them have an active Buckeye on the roster. In week 9 of the NFL season, 4 of those 24 teams had a bye.

Current Chicago Bear and former Ohio State OT Mike Adams was able to relax on Sunday because of the team bye. Former Buckeye, National Champion and current Bengals kicker Mike Nugent was also on a bye as well as Braxton Miller, John Simon (Texans) and Nate Ebner (Patriots).
