Boston College vs. Maine: Eagles In The NFL, Week 2

New, comments

Ryan Quigley and Luke Kuechly lead the way in Week Two

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

A look around the NFL for ex-purveyors of maroon and gold and their Week Two performances:

Will Blackmon, Jacksonville Jaguars

After RGIII went down with a dislocated ankle, Kirk Cousins eviscerated the Jaguar defense en route to a 41-10 victory. But Blackmon recorded four tackles in the defeat.

Anthony Costanzo & Gosder Cherilus, Indianapolis Colts

The dueling tackles entrusted with keeping quarterback Andrew Luck upright did just that, allowing zero sacks on Monday night against Philadelphia. Luck tossed three TD's, but Nick Foles and his 300-plus yards led the Eagles past Indy, 30-27, in a front-runner for the league's game of the year.

Jo-Lonn Dunbar, St. Louis Rams

The St. Louis defense came up big against Tampa Bay, taking advantage when wide receiver Mike Evans went down hurt with under 10 seconds to go and no timeouts remaining for the Bucs. The result was a 10-second runoff that gave the Rams their first win of the season, 19-17.  Dunbar had three solo tackles in the win.

Kasim Edebali, New Orleans Saints

Edebali continued to see snaps for the Saints in their Week Two matchup in Cleveland, but New Orleans fell short as the Browns won, 26-24.

Nate Freese, Detroit Lions

Freese finds himself in hot water after a poor kicking performance against Carolina. Going 0-for-2 on field goal attempts, he did convert a single extra point in a 24-7 loss. The perfect kicker at BC has been anything but for Detroit, prompting the Lions to give some free agents like Rob Bironas and Alex Henery a workout and look.

Mark Herzlich, Matthias Kiwanuka, & Andre Williams, New York Giants

Attrition to the Giants defense prompted coach Tom Coughlin to use Herzlich, BC legend, on the field in regular down play, and the cancer survivor didn't disappoint. He recorded three solo tackles and a pass deflection. It wasn't enough to help New York win, however, and Big Blue dropped to Arizona, 25-14.

Kiwanuka, meanwhile, registered three tackles of his own, and Williams saw extended time in the backfield. AW44 saw his first pass receptions in years, registering seven yards catching. He failed to ignite the offense, though, and now sits squarely as the #2 back behind Rashad Jennings.

Luke Kuechly, Carolina Panthers

Freese might've had problems, but the NFL's tackling machine has continued to own opposing offenses. Kuechly had 11 tackles in the Carolina win, and his 20 on the season is tied for third best in the NFL.

Ryan Quigley, New York Jets

Quigley was a standout for Gang Green, helping to pin Green Bay deep in their own territory multiple times. He averaged over 45 yards per punt, making five kicks, and landed one inside the Packer 20 yard line as well as recording a long of 56 yards. Special teams weren't the issue, though, and Green Bay won, 31-24.

Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

Ryan struggled to replicate his record-setting opening game performance, throwing for just 231 yards and Atlanta's lone touchdown. The Falcons dropped to Cincinnati, 24-10.
