It's that time of the year again, folks — the time when NFL teams really start to beg for votes in order to send their players to the Pro Bowl. 

Apparently it's not just NFL teams doing that, though. Everyone's favorite Tuesday night dollar-u-call-it location and inevitable blackout got in on the action, too. 

Iowa football would really like your retweets too, because, you know, #HawksHelpHawks. 

THE ROOKIES

Josey Jewell had a solo tackle before leaving the game Sunday with a high ankle sprain. The inside linebacker played only eight snaps before exiting, but fully expects to be back this week to reunite with former teammates George Kittle and C.J. Beathard in San Francisco. 

Josh Jackson had two solo tackles and a pass defended against the Cardinals while playing nearly every snap. And speaking of offensive snaps, Bears guard James Daniels played all of them for the sixth game in a row. 

THE DEFENSE

Desmond King continued to do Desmond King things last Sunday. The Chargers cornerback and kick returner scored his second touchdown of the season, this time on a 73-yard punt return. King also had 10 tackles — nine solo — and a 21-yard kick return. 

Micah Hyde also made a difference on defense, snagging his second interception of the season for the Bills. He also had four tackles and a pass defended. 

Anthony Hitchens had 10 tackles against the Raiders and Jaleel Johnson had two assisted tackles. 

THE OFFENSE

George Kittle had six receptions for 70 yards in yet another 49ers loss. Maybe if this guy can actually get fans to make his dream a reality, it can distract from San Francisco's disappointing record: 

Kittle would entertain the idea: 

Rams center Austin Blythe has played 820 snaps this year, and finally committed his first penalty of the season on Sunday with a holding call. He made up for it, though.
