Lots of Huskers were back in action this week. Let’s get straight to it!


Quincy Enunwa: New York Jets wide receiver

Enunwa was targeted six times but only had two catches for nine yards in the Jets 26-22 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Rex Burkhead: New England Patriots running back

Burkhead returned to the Patriots lineup and racked up seven carries for 20 yards along with two receptions for 21 yards in the Patriots 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Andy Janovich: Denver Broncos fullback

Janovich only had one catch for seven yards last week but he also chipped in with a special teams tackle in a 24-10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.


Randy Gregory: Dallas Cowboys defensive end

Although Randy Gregory made two tackles (including one TFL) against the Saints, he will probably be remembered for his mistakes on special teams. Instead of focusing on that, go read this well-written ESPN profile on Randy Gregory which showcases what he has been through in the past year.

Maliek Collins: Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle

Gregory’s former college roommate racked up one tackle in a big 13-10 win over the Saints.

Nate Gerry: Philadelphia Eagles linebacker

The Sioux Falls, South Dakota collected two tackles and a crucial intercept in the 4th quarter against the Redskins.

Prince Amukamara: Chicago Bears cornerback

Prince collected five tackles in a 30-27 overtime loss against his former team in the New York Giants.

Lavonte David: Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker

David returned from injury this week (MCL sprain) and led the team with 12 tackles and and also had one sack in a big 24-17 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Ndamukong Suh: Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle

Suh returned to Detroit and racked up six tackles and two QB hits in a comfortable 30-16 win over the Lions. Pretty strong effort.

Special Teams

Sam Koch: Baltimore Ravens punter

Fake punts are awesome!

Brett Maher: Dallas Cowboys kicker

The Kearney kicker racked up extra point and two field goals (from 26 & 46) to help the Cowboys get a huge 13-10 wins over the Saints.

This week

Ndamukong Suh and Prince Amukamara will be on opposite sites of the field in a Sunday Night Football clash at Solider Field.

Nate Gerry’s Eagles will also be squaring up against the Cowboys on Sunday in Dallas. Will we see Gerry block a Brett Maher field goal or tussle with Randy Gregory on special teams? Stay tuned to find out.
