Auburn football: Tigers in the NFL, Week 11

rblack@ledger-enquirer.comNovember 19, 2013 

Eleven weeks of the NFL season are in the books, finishing up Monday night as Cam Newton and Carolina outdueled Tom Brady and New England, with the former Tiger signal-caller connecting with Ted Ginn Jr. on a 25-yard, go-ahead touchdown catch with 59 seconds to play.

But how did other Auburn fare in NFL contests since last Thursday?

As is customary each week, I extend my gratitude to Ethan Brady, a student assistant in Auburn's athletics department who compiled this information.
