Kyle Larson had another busy day for the Bengals, punting the ball 5
times for an average of 35.5 yards, but the stat that yells out to you is that
out of the 5 punts, Larson pinned the Steelers under their own 20 yard-line 4
times. It helped, but wasn’t enough as Cincy lost to the Steelers, 28-17.
John Parrella had one tackle for the Oakland Raiders as they faced off
against the Houston Texans who had some former Huskers that had decidedly better
days, linebacker – Jay Foreman proving once again he’s one of the best
tacklers for the Texans, tallying 7 total tackles for the game along with
recovering 1 fumble. Kris Brown had yet another stellar day for Houston,
going 3 for 4, hitting one from an eye-popping 57 yards.
Chris Kelsay had 2 tackles for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday as they faced
off against the New England Patriots. Kelsay also forced a fumble that he
recovered, but the help wasn’t enough as New England posted their
18th win in a row, beating the Bills, 31-17. If New England wins
their next game, they will have set the all-time record for most consecutive
wins by a team in NFL history.
Ahman Green ran for 58 yards on 15 carries for Green Bay as they faced
the New York Giants yesterday. Green also led the Pack in receiving, catching 3
balls for 48 yards. Green did also fumble during the game, a game which saw
Brett Favre go out with a reported concussion only to return and throw for a
touchdown. It wasn’t enough as that was the only score Green Bay would put up,
the Packers dropping another game, losing this one 14-7.
Demorrio Williams totaled 3 tackles for the Falcons, helping Atlanta to a
victory over the normally very defensive Carolina Panthers, 27-10. On the losing
side, Mike Rucker was second on the team with 6 tackles while Mike Minter totaled 3 in the game. The 4-0 start for the Falcons is the best in
Eric Warfield had just 1 tackle for Kansas City as they faced off on
Monday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens, but he probably didn’t care
as the winless Chiefs finally shed that tag by beating the Ravnes 27-24.
