NFL Preseason: Wallace Scores Lone Passing Touchdown


Former Cyclone quarterback Seneca Wallace highlighted the Cleveland Browns’ preseason game against the Detroit Lions with the most completions of the other three quarterbacks that saw action for the team. He also had the single passing touchdown in the 19-17 victory over Lions.

Wallace began play when the second half opened up, coming in after Colt McCoy’s performance in the second quarter. Wallace completed 7-13 passes for 86 yards that included a 12-yard touchdown pass to Brad Smelley, a former Alabama fullback. All the Cleveland quarterbacks had similar nights like this except their starter.

Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden had the worst night in comparison completing only 3-9 passes for 62 yards and had an interception, despite being named the new starter for the football team.

Sage Rosenfels didn’t play in the opening preseason game with the Minnesota Vikings against the San Francisco 49ers. According to a post by FanSided’s Vikings blog, the former Cylone quarterback may have a problem getting passed by the name of McLeod Bethel-Thompson.

Other Iowa State players during the first week of NFL preseason:

  • Houston Texans linebacker Tim Dobbins had two tackles, three assists, and 1.5 sacks in the 26-13 victory against the Carolina Panthers.
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Leonard Johnson recorded a tackle in the 20-7 victory against the Miami Dolphins.
