Week 10 has come and gone as the 2021 NFL season officially turns to the second half of its schedule.
Fourteen Sooners played and recorded a stat in the 14 game slate. 2019 teammates Jalen Hurts, CeeDee Lamb and Rhamondre Stevenson led the way as each of their teams won in dominant fashion. Here’s a look at their performances:
In a 43-3 win over the Atlanta Falcons, Lamb caught a pair of touchdowns along with 94 receiving yards. The wide receiver even ran for 12 yards on one carry. The Dallas Cowboys now sit at 7-2 as they prepare to take on Kansas City on Sunday, Nov. 21 for their Week 11 showdown.
Stevenson rushed for a career-high 100 yards on a career-high 20 carries and scored a career-high two touchdowns. Through the air, the running back also added 14 yards on four receptions. The New England Patriots proceeded to blow out the Cleveland Browns, 45-7. The 6-4 Patriots are now second in the AFC East as they prepare to play the Falcons on Thursday, Nov. 18.
