Boston College Football: Eagles in the NFL, Week Nine

New, 2 comments

Andre Williams scores his third touchdown, and Luke Kuechly continues to tackle everyone that moves.

Al Bello

Will Blackmon, Jacksonville Jaguars

Blackmon missed the Jags' 33-23 loss to Cincinnati after sustaining an injury last week.

Anthony Costanzo & Gosder Cherilus, Indianapolis Colts

The twin tackles protected Andrew Luck to the tune of one sack and 345 passing yards as Indianapolis rolled the New York Football Giants, 40-24. The Colts notched 443 total yards.

Jo-Lonn Dunbar, St. Louis Rams

Dunbar continued to improve on his season, recording five tackles as the Rams upset San Francisco, 13-10.

Kasim Edebali, New Orleans Saints

Edebali, now officially a linebacker for the Saints, made two tackles, but NOLA lost to the Carolina Panthers, 28-10.

Matt Hasselbeck, Indianapolis Colts

Hasselbeck continued to hold the clipboard amazingly and collected his paycheck as Indianapolis stormed through New York.

Mark Herzlich & Mathias Kiwanuka, New York Giants

Herzlich and Kiwanuka combined for five tackles (four from Kiwi) in the Giants' loss to the Colts. Kiwanuka also registered two knockdowns on Andrew Luck.

Luke Kuechly, Carolina Panthers

Kuechly recorded eight tackles on the field and probably tackled a ball boy, two cheerleaders, a sideline reporter, and the mascot in the Panthers' 28-10 win. He continues to lead the NFL and it's not even close. 97 tackles for him this season put him in the conversation for NFL MVP and Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Al Louis-Jean, Chicago Bears

After getting eviscerated by my beloved New England Patriots, ALJ sat out a week with the Bears on a bye.

Kevin Pierre-Louis, Seattle Seahawks

The Legion of Boom might already be a distant memory for Seahawks fans, especially in surrendering 24 points to Oakland, but KPL scored two tackles on Sunday as the defending Super Bowl champions continued their title defense. Seattle won, 30-24.

Ryan Quigley, New York Jets

The Jets lost again, 24-10.  Everyone laugh at the Jets.

All joking aside, Quigley punted three more times for 148 yards, averaging 49.3 yards per punt with a long of 56. His 2,139 punting yards are third in the NFL.

Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

Ryan relaxed for the week with the Falcons on a bye.

Damik Scafe, San Diego Chargers

Scafe recorded a DNP in sitting out San Diego's 37-0 loss to Miami.

Andre Williams, New York Giants

Andre's struggled to gain yards on the ground, and this week was no different. He only scored 22 yards on 12 carries, but he got his third touchdown of the year in the Giants' loss. The Giants also threw him the football, and he took off for a catch of 24 yards. Williams is having a little bit of a tougher time adjusting to the NFL since joining the Giants, mostly because the bruising style doesn't work as well in the big leagues. On one particular play, he lowered the shoulder and met a linebacker, only the linebacker didn't move like last year. Instead, Andre took a wicked hit and fumbled. It'll be interesting to see what happens to Williams when Rashad Jennings comes back to full health. Still, it's encouraging to see him in the lineup as a rookie.
