Here's a look at what standout performances former Buckeyes had in NFL games this past weekend.

Garrett Wilson takes center stage for New York Jets

Garrett Wilson left FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland with his first two NFL touchdowns.

The former Ohio State receiver caught his first in the second quarter with a two-yard reception from New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco, later following up with the game-winning 15-yard grab to seal the win against the Cleveland Browns.

Wilson, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft, was the Jets' leading receiver in their 31-30 win against the Browns, bringing in eight receptions on 14 targets for 102 yards.

Noah Brown emerges as Dallas Cowboys' leading receiver

Through the first two games of the 2022 season, Noah Brown has been as consistent as a receiver can be for the Dallas Cowboys offense.

In the Cowboys' Week 2 20-17 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, the former Ohio State wide receiver brought in each of his five targets for 91 yards and a nine-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Cooper Rush.

Through two games, Brown, a seventh-round pick in 2017, is the Cowboys' leading receiver, bringing in 10 of 14 targets — the second-most on the team behind CeeDee Lamb — for 159 yards and a touchdown.

Former Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott also added 53 rushing yards on 15 carries for the Cowboys.

San Francisco 49ers Nick Bosa wrecks havoc against Seahawks

When Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith was brought to the ground Sunday, it was at the hands of former Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa.

The former No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft recorded both of the San Francisco 49ers' sacks in its 27-9 win against the Seahawks, adding four tackles and five quarterback hits.

It was the 10th multi-sack game of Bosa's NFL career.

Marshon Lattimore ejected during New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game

Marshon Lattimore has a history with Mike Evans.

And when the New Orleans Saints faced the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, that personal rivalry continued.

Evans and Lattimore were each ejected from the Buccaneers' 20-10 win against the Saints Sunday, while Evans was suspended for one game for the incident.

Chris Olave finished as the Saints' leading receiver, bringing in five of 13 targets for 80 yards, while Michael Thomas had six receptions for 65 yards and a seven-yard touchdown on nine targets.

Linebacker Pete Werner finished with eight tackles, while cornerback Bradley Roby added five tackles.
