Monday morning quarterbacking
- October 14, 2012 - 8:19 PM
JOHN ABRAHAM, DE, Falcons
The 34-year-old had three sacks among his five tackles, including one that forced a fumble to set up an Atlanta score.
SHELDON BROWN, CB, Browns
His 19-yard interception return for a score in the fourth quarter helped Cleveland end its 11-game losing streak.
OLIVIER VERNON, DE, Dolphins The homegrown rookie's second sack of the game forced the Rams to attempt a 66-yard field goal to tie the score.
JOHN SKELTON, QB, Cardinals Forced into action when Kevin Kolb got hurt, the Week 1 starter went 2-for-10 and threw the OT interception that lost the game.
TAVON WILSON, S, Patriots
The second-round pick got turned around and lost his footing as Sidney Rice got behind him for the winning TD.
FLETCHER COX, DE, Eagles
The rookie committed three penalties, getting ejected on the third for throwing a punch on a PAT.
The Jets got a shot in the arm from Shonn Greene, who ran for more yards Sunday than he had in his previous four combined.
As long as Brady Quinn is at QB, it might be tough sledding for Jamaal Charles, who was held to 40 yards on 12 carries.
Jimmy Graham did next to nothing last week, but he had two good games last year vs. Tampa Bay, the Saints' next opponent.
