Cyclones in the NFL: A.J. Klein, Leonard Johnson continue to impress


Two former Iowa State defenders had more great days in the NFL last Sunday, but just one had their team get a big victory.

More from Iowa State Cyclones

  • A.J. Klein (Panthers) recorded seven tackles (four solo). Three of them happened in the first half and had two solo hits in the first drive of the second half.
  • Kelechi Osemele (Ravens) was praised by center Jeremy �Zuttah, who said he has the best guards in the league. He had another great day, aiding in the line which didn’t allow a sack and allowed Joe Flacco to just get hit twice. They also allowed three tackles for loss.
  • Leonard Johnson (Buccaneers) had eight tackles (four solo) and deflected a pass. He had three tackles in the last drive in the first quarter. He also picked up a defensive holding call early in the second quarter which gave the Steelers a first down and eventually got a touchdown.
  • Ahtyba Rubin (Browns) didn’t play as Cleveland was on a BYE week. Jeremiah George (Jaguars) was inactive.
