Great Day For NFL Horns

Bumped. Hook 'em

It was a good day for quite a few Horns.  Three of our running backs produced very well, but 2 of them didn't get any support from their team.  Orakpo went nuts.

Here is a quick break down, stats provided by ESPN.

Ricky:  108 yards on 28 carries with a TD to help the Dolphins win.  He did lose 1 fumble. 

Benson: 96 yards on 16 carries.  I don't know why you had the ball to a guy named Leonard to fumble it when your main back is getting 6 ypc.  Bengals were just too far back to keep handing it to Benson. 

While we're talking about Benson, Cosby:  107 yards on 6 kick off returns.  Cosby only got a chance to try to return 2 punts as the Bengal's D couldn't stop the Vikings and make them punt. 
Jamaal Freaking Charles: 143 yards on 20 carries with a 76 yard TD run!  Also 38 yards on 7 receptions.  Zero fumbles.  Net positive?  I think so.  Net negative = Matt Cassel who managed to turn the ball over 4 times.  Somehow KC still only lost 16-10.  After 3 Ints, with JC running that well, I think you just Wild Bengal with JC and LJ  just hand JC the ball all the time.

VY:  Was doing well until he got hurt on a 44 yard run.  He was 6/8 for 132 with a TD.  I hope he's OK. 

Roy Williams:  Meh day during the Cowboys' loss.  He seemed to do about as well as the other WRs though..  I don't know if he had any bad drops.  He had 4 recs to lead the team with 74 yards, but no TDs. 

Orakpo:  FOUR sacks.  FOUR.  And the guy is playing LB most of the time.  Crazy.  He's at 11 for the year.  If he doesn't disapear (he did go the last 3 games without a sack) he could break the Rookie record for sacks.  I think he is only 3 or 4 away.

Huff obviously didn't have a great day being on the other side of the 34 to 13 beating of the Raiders by the Redskins.

If I missed any other Horns with good days please add them (obviously its hard to list stats to show how OL like Studdard helped thier teams to 27 offensive points).
