The sixth week of the 2022 NFL season has come and gone, and multiple former Oregon Ducks had strong performances.

Marcus Mariota was at his absolute best for the Falcons, nearly completing every one of his pass attempts while leading Atlanta to a big win over San Francisco.

Meanwhile, rookie pass rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux was exceptionally disruptive against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens on Sunday, recording a sack and forcing a fumble to help seal the victory for the Giants.

Justin Herbert completed a whopping 37 passes – without throwing a touchdown – while DeForest Buckner was once again excellent along Indianapolis’ defensive front.

With the Texans, Titans, and Lions on a bye, and with injuries impacting guys like Arik Armstead and Troy Hill, there weren’t as many Oregon alumni on the field in Week 6 – but the ones that were showed just how well this program is churning out quality NFL pieces.

Here is a full look at how every Oregon alumni performed in NFL Week 6 action:

Herbert completed a whopping 37 passes on Monday against the Broncos, but he only threw for 238 yards and no touchdowns. His 57 passing attempts without a touchdown is an NFL record, and he threw a pick in the process.

However, his team still managed to defeat the lowly Broncos for their third win in a row.

Johnson had four receptions for 41 yards in the Saints loss to the Bengals on Sunday. His 170 receiving yards on the season is already a career-high, but he has yet to find the end zone after doing so four times in 2021.
