During the final episode of Hard Knocks, Bengals defensive tackle Domata Peko and his pregnant wife Anna, learned that the sex of their third child was going to be a boy. Peko was thrilled with the thought that he might, just might, fill an entire defensive line on a base 4-3 defense. On Wednesday, Domata and Anna welcomed their newest son to the world.

A day later, Peko was honored at Izzy's "Wall of Fame" by having a sandwich named after him.
"We've got the ciabatta bread and the corned beef from Izzy's – the best corned beef ever. We have goetta, provolone cheese and on top of that Izzy's special sauce," Peko said via Fox 19. "This is the best thing I like to eat. Go to Izzy's and get yourself a Peko Sandwich, man. It's awesome!"
A good week indeed.
It's little moments like these that one appreciates a guy like Peko. A good spirit, great leader, fantastic influence and someone that's really adopted to the city. Despite being born in Los Angeles and playing college ball at Michigan State, he's a Cincinnati guy.
