Latinos in the NFL: Week 12 Recap

Welcome to another edition of your weekly tour of the Latino locker room in the NFL.

Sometimes tours don’t start with good news, and this is one of those times.

The second-year receiver of the New Orleans Saints, Chris Olave, was experiencing something of a resurgence recently after a season of ups and downs. However, on Sunday an obstacle was presented that they hope will not become greater.

Olave had seven receptions for 114 yards before leaving the game with a concussion in the second half of the game against the Atlanta Falcons. The player with a Cuban background fell hard off the field while looking for a ball thrown by the quarterback Derek Carr. After an up-and-down season, Olave was building an early rhythm with Carr.

In fact, Olave was having a great game when he was injured; His total of 114 yards represented his highest performance this season for a first half of the game. But the concussion in the 24-15 loss to the Falcons destroyed that joy.

Olave has been relatively healthy for most of his young career, only missing two games during his rookie season and has played in every game this campaign. He entered Sunday’s game as New Orleans’ leader in receptions (56), receiving yards (657) and tied for the lead in touchdowns (3).

The 23-year-old will have to clear all five steps of the concussion protocol in order to play in the Saints’ Week 13 game against the Detroit Lions on December 3rd.

We will be waiting for the news regarding Olave’s health.

And now we continue with our task: to closely follow the 2023 season of Latinos on the gridiron, week by week.

Our Latin star of Week 12 was the runner of the current champions Kansas City Chiefs (8-3), the Puerto Rican Isiah Pacheco.

On Sunday afternoon, Pacheco recorded 15 carries for 55 yards and two touchdowns, as well as five receptions for 34 yards in the win over Las Vegas Raiders (5-7).

His first touchdown came in the second quarter and was a 1-yard run on third-and-goal, capping a 12-play, 71-yard drive; Kansas City scored its first points to cut its deficit to 14-7.

Pacheco’s second score came in the third quarter after a sensational 14-yard run that looked like a touchdown, but was 1 yard short of the end zone. Immediately afterwards, he himself gave the Chiefs their first lead of the game and it would be the final one over the Raiders. On first and goal from the 1-yard line, with the score tied at 14, Pacheco scored his second touchdown of the day. The Chiefs did not look back and won 31-17.

In his second season in the league, Pacheco leads the team with 6 scores. He needs just 331 yards rushing in the final six games of the regular season to achieve his first 1,000-yard season.

With the result, Andy Reid became the first coach in NFL history to set a winning record for two different franchises. Reid won 140 games with the Philadelphia Eagles (130 in the regular season, 10 in the postseason) and 137 with the Chiefs (125 in the regular season, 12 in the postseason). Big Red also ranks second in postseason wins with 22, behind only Bill Belichick, coach of the New England Patriots.

The Chiefs have won two games and lost two in their last four meetings after that great streak of six straight victories.

That’s it, Pop!

How Latinos played in Week 12 of the NFL

We also celebrate the magnificent performance of Brazilian Cairo Santos in the framework of Monday Night Football for the Chicago Bears (4-8), which lifted them over their divisional rivals, the Minnesota Vikings (6-6), 12-10.

Santos’ four field goals literally meant Chicago’s victory, thanks to the great defensive work that led to four interceptions and two sacks by rival quarterback Joshua Dobbs. The Vikings were not far behind with their great defense, as they sacked the visiting quarterback, Justin Fields, three times.

In case there is any doubt that the Brazilian was the hero of the game, he scored Chicago’s winning 30-yard field goal with 10 seconds remaining, his fourth of the game after missing one on the opening drive.

Before that, Santos tied a career high by making a 55-yard field goal. Coach Matt Eberflus’ decision to punt on the third play of the fourth quarter was a boost Santos said he needed.

“When he let me kick it 55 yards, especially after I didn’t hit a long one, I remember thinking, ‘I love this coach for letting me do that,'” Santos said in the Bears’ locker room after the game. ‚ÄúHe gives me that confidence for that kick. I said, ‘Let’s go.’ ‚ÄúRight before that, it was almost like I knew the kick was going to go in because of the trust he showed in me.‚ÄĚ

Excellent, Cairo!

Additionally, second-year outside linebacker Nik Bonitto was key in the Denver Broncos’ (6-5) victory over the Cleveland Browns (7-4), contributing 2 total tackles, 1 solo, 1 tackle for loss, 1.5 sacks , 1 pass defended and 1 hit on the quarterback. After the game, the rough-and-tumble pass rusher explained that the Broncos’ defensive line has been so dominant and is effective in making a wave of turnovers because of the discipline they have in practice.

In this way, Bonitto and Denver achieved their fifth consecutive victory and stopped Cleveland’s streak of three wins in a row.

Well done Nik!

Latinos who did not play in Week 12 of the NFL

On Wednesday of last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-4) acquired linebacker Blake Martinezwho had just come out of retirement to join the practice squad of the Carolina Panthers (1-10).

Due to the Mexican-born player’s short time back in the league, and particularly with the Pittsburgh team, the decision was made on Saturday to rest Mart√≠nez and at the same time elevate Tariq Carpenter from the practice squad for the third consecutive game, this time to visit the Cincinnati Bengals (5-6) and beat them, 16-10. Carpenter contributed 1 total tackle (1 solo) and played 13 special teams snaps (54%).
