Two former Big Ten players took home some weekly hardware for their performances at the next level.
Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week and ex-Indiana running back Jordan Howard was tabbed as the Offensive Player of the Week in the NFC.
Roby, a first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, had a pick 6 and made seven tackles for the Denver Broncos in a win over San Diego on Sunday.

Howard, meanwhile, had 153 rushing yards on 26 attempts and caught another four passes for 49 yards while scoring a touchdown in the Chicago Bears’ Monday night win over Minnesota.
Howard, who played the 2015 season at Indiana after the football program at UAB shutdown, was a fifth-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft. In seven career NFL games, Howard has 505 rushing yards, 177 receiving yards and three career touchdowns.
