After the SEC road win Saturday night Ole Miss football fans were busy Sunday watching their favorite NFL Rebels in action.
Saturday night while Ole Miss football fans were watching the Rebels get a big road win over Arkansas there were NFL Rebels who were preparing for Sunday action. OHT has been following our NFL Rebels this season and we’ve seen some notable performances on both sides of the ball so far this season.
Of course, there are 25 NFL Rebels on active rosters so we expected to see some of them in action Sunday and we did with a number of them putting up good numbers. While most of the OHT news and updates have centered around the offensive side of the ball it was the defensive NFL Rebels who had some of the biggest games. However, lets start on the offensive side of ball.

The offensive NFL Rebels had a rough go of it Sunday with a number of them failing to put up any stats. However, there were two who did. Former Rebels QB Eli Manning went 24 of 43 for 281 yards and 1 INT in the Giants 31-13 loss to the Eagles.
Former Rebels tight-end Evan Engram is still out with a sprained MCL on his right knee and his return date is still undetermined. We wish Evan a very speedy recovery and are ready to see him back in action soon.
