Will Blackmon, Jacksonville Jaguars
Blackmon recorded three tackles, but the Jags lost again, 27-13, to Miami.
Anthony Costanzo and Gosder Cherilus, Indianapolis Colts
The duo once again protected Andrew Luck, but the outcome was starkly different. One of the most offensive (in a good way) games in NFL history ended with the Colts scoring 34 points...and losing by double digits. The Steelers scored 51 points, and Ben Roethlisberger overshadowed the Franchise at home. Good showing by the former Eagle tackles, though.
Jo-Lonn Dunbar, St. Louis Rams
Dunbar recorded a single tackle in the Rams' 34-7 loss to Kansas City. Let the "Rams to LA" rumors continue!
Kasim Edebali, New Orleans Saints
Edebali recorded his first career sack and forced a fumble as part of a three-tackle output in the Saints' 44-23 victory over Green Bay in the Superdome on Sunday night.
Matt Hasselbeck, Indianapolis Colts
Boy Hasselbeck looked good holding that clipboard on Sunday.
Mark Herzlich, Mathias Kiwanuka, and Andre Williams, New York Giants
The Giants were off, but the noteworthy news surrounded Williams. Head coach Tom Coughlin was unsure if first string running back Rashad Jennings would be back for Week Nine from his injury, which would put AW44 in place for another start.
Luke Kuechly, Carolina Panthers
Kuechly made nine tackles in the Panthers' 13-9 loss to Seattle. He leads the NFL with 89 tackles and is on pace for just under 200 tackles as of this week.
Al Louis-Jean, Chicago Bears
ALJ ended up playing substantial minutes due to injuries in the Chicago defensive backfield. That led to him making his first five career tackles, but, unfortunately, he also drew plenty of targets as New England's offense drubbed the Bears, 51-23. ALJ wrapped up Rob Gronkowski on the tight end's 46 yard touchdown catch, but Gronk dove into the end zone carrying #39 on his back. ALJ may have earned the start in a couple weeks since the Bears are off this week.
Kevin Pierre-Louis, Seattle Seahawks
KPL made three tackles, one for a loss, as Seattle rallied past Carolina, 13-9, in a defensive battle.
Ryan Quigley, New York Jets
Good news for Jet fans is that their punter is AWESOME. Quigley punted five times for 226 yards; that's three more than what Geno Smith completed for passes to his own team, but it's only two more than what Geno Smith completed to the Bills. The Jets lost again, 43-23. Quigley is third in the NFL in punting yards with just under 2,000.
Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons
Ryan threw for 228 yards and two touchdowns in London on Sunday (morning?), but the Falcons lost, 22-21, to Detroit. Ryan's 2,306 yards rank third in the NFL passing, but the Falcons are struggling with a 2-6 record in the anemic NFC South.
Damik Scafe, San Diego Chargers
Scafe did not play in the Chargers' loss to the Broncos.
