The big winners among the UB alumni playing tonight were on defense. Khalil Mack was dominant and Steven Means may have cemented himself as the player to beat for the fourth spot among the Eagles defensive ends.
Means and the Eagles took on the Pittsburgh Steelers and shut them out, 17-0. Means mustered two tackles and a quarterback hit and while Smith had a better game numberswise Steven Means did his work against the Pittsburgh first and second units.
For the second week in a row Means forced an opposing quarterback into a bad throw, creating a turnover.

This play ended up being negated by a Marcus Smith offsides call.
Mack had a very good showing against the Packers. He had four tackles, two quarterback hits, and a sack.
In that game James Starks carried the ball six times for 26 yards, including a 24 yard scamper.
Elsewhere Joe Licata got a minute of work in for the Bengals but Cincinnati did not call any passing plays despite Joe outplaying Keith Wenning last week.
I did not catch John Kling of the Bears or Kristjan Sokoli of the Seahawks. If you saw them play and have something to add throw up a comment.
