Boston College Football: Eagles In The NFL, Week 3

Matt Ryan was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, but Nate Freese needs a job.

Kevin C. Cox

Will Blackmon, Jacksonville Jaguars

Blackmon had three tackles against the Indianapolis Colts. That's about the only good news to report on anything related to the Jags defense, which lost 44-17.

Anthony Costanzo & Gosder Cherilus, Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck was sacked four times, but that's about all that went wrong for the Colts. Indianapolis amassed 529 yards of total offense, including 385 through the air, in their demolition of the Jags. Costanzo and Cherilus are the starting tackles protecting the franchise's front side and back side.

Jo-Lonn Dunbar, St. Louis Rams

Dunbar recorded three tackles for the Rams as St. Louis jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the second quarter. But America's Team rallied for 20 consecutive points and held off a fourth quarter score to take a 34-31 victory. St. Louis fell to 1-2, 0-2 at home.

Kasim Edebali, New Orleans Saints

Edebali continued to see game action for the Saints. New Orleans rolled over Teddy Bridgewater's NFL debut, 20-9, against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Nate Freese, Detroit Lions/Free Agent

Poor Freese. The perfect kicker for the Eagles was anything but for Detroit. Going 1-for-2 in field goals, the Lions signed Alex Henery and cut Freese after the Lions edged out Green Bay at home, 19-7. Freese now goes from kicker of the future and heir apparent to Jason Hansen to free agent in less than four weeks. The seventh round draft pick now needs to find himself a job.

Matt Hasselbeck, Indianapolis Colts

Welcome back, Father Time! With the game no longer in doubt, Hasselbeck relieved Andrew Luck and threw for 20 yards.

Mark Herzlich, Mathias Kiwanuka, and Andre Williams, New York Giants

Herzlich contributed some of his best football to date, registering four tackles in Big Blue's first win of the season.  Kiwanuka added one tackle, and Williams scored 18 yards as New York beat Houston, 30-17.

Luke Kuechly, Carolina Panthers

The Panthers were dealt a big blow in a 37-9 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday night. But it wasn't due to lack of effort from the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year. Kuechly recorded 14 tackles, a team high.

Kevin Pierre-Louis, Seattle Seahawks

Congratulations are in order for KPL. He recorded his first ever NFL tackle, and his Seattle Seahawks won their return match against the Denver Broncos on a shockingly sunny day in the Pacific Northwest, 26-20.

Ryan Quigley, New York Jets

Quigley had three punts for 145 yards, an average of 48.3. His longest punt went for 54 yards, and one dropped inside the 20 yard line. The Jets lost to Chicago, 27-19.

Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

Ryan threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns, setting an Atlanta Falcons franchise record for accuracy by going 21-for-24 in passing attempts. On top of it all, he started the "Tampa Bay to the Sun Belt Conference" campaign by staking ATL to a 56-0 lead on national television, then was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week. At least New Guy didn't pass on him in his fantasy draft so he could take Tom Brady or anything.

Eagles on Rosters but Did Not Play
