The opening week of the NFL kicked off this past weekend, and for many teams, it’s a time where they respectively find their identities. Throughout the process, many former Alabama standouts saw the field of action.

The season kicked off with the Atlanta Falcons against the defending Super Bowl Champions Philadelphia Eagles. During the game, former Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones caught 10 passes for 169 yards. In the end, the Falcons came up short 18-12.

Rookie Da’Ron Payne made three tackles in his first career game, while his teammate Ryan Anderson recorded his first career sack. In his first action since October 15, Jonathan Allen recorded one tackle and two quarterback hits.

C.J Mosley and Marlon Humphrey both stepped up to help the Baltimore Ravens cruise passed the Buffalo Bills 43-7. Mosley led the team with five tackles, and Humphrey had two tackles and broke up four passes.

Cincinnati Bengals’ cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick broke up three passes and tallied three tackles in the 34-23 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

In arguably the weekends best game, Green Bay Packers’ safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix made seven tackles in their comeback over the Chicago Bears. The Packers would win 24-23.

Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran Reed made six tackles and a quarterback hit in the 27-24 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Dont’a Hightower made two tackles and recovered a fumble against the Houston Texans in the New England Patriots’ 27-20 victory. The game was his first regular-season game since last October. He only played five games a season ago due to a torn pectoral muscle. Texans’ safety Kareem Jackson made a team-high eight tackles and two forced fumbles in the loss.

Other notable former Alabama players to have good performances were safety Landon Collins with the New York Giants broke up a pass and finished with five tackles and linebacker Reggie Ragland with the Kansas City Chiefs made seven tackles.
