A Bunch Of Former Buckeyes Shined On Monday Night Football

Monday night was Ohio State night in the NFL.

A bunch of former Ohio State stars shined on ESPN's Monday Night Football.

ESPN had two games last night - Saints at Vikings and Chargers at Broncos - and both contests featured several former Buckeyes.

In the Saints-Vikings' game, former Ohio State star offensive lineman Pat Elflein started at center. He's Minnesota's first rookie to start at center in the season opener more than 50 years.

On the other side of the field was former Buckeye wide receiver Michael Thomas, who's expected to be one of the league's top wideouts this fall. Thomas had five catches for 45 yards. Also part of the Saints' receivers corps is Ted Ginn Jr., the former Ohio State speedster. He had four catches for 53 yards. In the late game, a couple of former Buckeye stars shined on defense. Los Angeles' second-year defensive lineman Joey Bosa wreaked havoc on Denver's offensive line. Denver cornerback Bradley Roby had an interception and several pass breakups.

Saturday night wasn't a great night for the Buckeyes, but Monday night was.
