Horns in the NFL: Week 9

19pcha

Marquise Goodwin caught his second TD of the season. via media.kansascity.com.

Week 9 left us with Marquise Goodwin being the only former Longhorn to score a TD. The rookie scored on a 59 yard catch in which he showed off his speed. He also caught another pass for 5 yards. He was targeted another two times, one of which was ruled an incomplete pass, even after Doug Marrone challenged the play. In my opinion, that was a bad call. It was a 40 yard pass in the 4th quarter and it would have changed the pace of the game, that the Chiefs ended up winning 23-13.

Jamaal Charles completed his second game in a row without scoring a TD, and it was the first game of the season that he didn't exceed 100 yards of total offense. He was held to 90 rushing and 6 receiving yards. The passing game was precisely where he struggled the most, averaging only 1 yard per catch thanks to a great display by rookie LB Kiko Alonso, who covered him during the whole game.

The defensive star this week was Brian Robison, who recorded two sacks during the Vikings loss against the Cowboys. That makes 3 total sacks for Robison this season. Earl Thomas again led his team in tackles with 12 in total (8 solos, 4 assisted), making him the Defensive Back with the most stops in the league. Aaron Williams was the Bills' leading tackler with 8, and Emmanuel Acho made his first two tackles in the NFL, after seeing playing time late in the Eagles game against the Raiders.

Michael Griffin missed the Titans game due to a right quadriceps injury. This is the first regular season game the seven year veteran has missed in his career. The unfortunate injury ended a streak of 103 consecutive appearances, which was the current record.

As rickyspub pointed out last week, Michael Huff was cut by the Ravens. Despite working out with the Bengals early in the week, he continues to be a free agent after passing through waivers unclaimed. The Bengals have signed Kheeston Randall, who was released by the Dolphins in the final cut of the preseason. He will be replacing star Geno Atkins, who was placed on Injured Reserve after suffering an ACL tear.

Jermichael Finley has finally been placed on IR and he will miss the rest of the season with a head injury. He is now the 6th former Longhorn on the IR this season (Sam Acho, Alex Okafor, Henry Melton, Aaron Ross, Keenan Robinson).
