Horns in the NFL: Weeks 13 & 14

DJ Johnson made his first pick of the season.

Sorry for not publishing the Week 13 Horns in the NFL post. It was a crazy week at work and I didn't have enough time to do it. Today, I bring you the last two weeks for our former Longhorns in the NFL.

Once again, Jamaal Charles was the star among our former Longhorns. During Week 13, the Chiefs RB ran for 93 yards with one score against the Broncos. His performance didn't prevent the 3rd consecutive loss for his team. However, in Week 14, the Chiefs finally got back on the winning path, defeating the Redskins. During that game, JC25 ran for 151 yards (season high) and one TD on 19 carries, and added one more score with a 5 yard-reception. He has now surpassed 1000 rushing yards this season, which is the third-highest, behind LeSean McCoy and Adrian Peterson. He is second in total yards among the RBs with 1622, just behind Eagles LeSean McCoy who leads with 1724.

Other former Texas RB, Fozzy Whittaker, had a rough night last Sunday. He deflected the New England Patriots' onside kick which allowed Kyle Arrington to recover with one minute left. The Patriots finally got the win with a Tom Brady TD pass to Amendola, right after a controversial defensive pass-interference call on rookie CB Leon McFadden. After the game, Fozzy declared that he didn't try to touch the ball, his intention was to block Patriots' kicker Stephen Gostkowski. During the presser, Browns' Rob Chudzinski refused to blame the team loss on Fozzy. In much happier news, Fozzy posted a picture yesterday of his newborn son, who is nicknamed ‘Baby Captain'. Congrats Fozzy!

On defense, Brian Robison continues to impress. With his one sack in each of week 13 and 14, he now has 7 on the season and he has recorded one in each of the last 4 weeks. He is now tied with Jared Allen at the top of the Vikings' season sacks statistic, and only 1.5 sacks away from his season high, which came last year. However, Brian Orakpo is still the former Longhorn with the most sacks this year with 8.5, and he recorded two during Week 13 against the Giants. Despite all the rumors in DC and the troubles the franchise is having, the pass rusher has already declared that his intention is to re-sign with the Redskins after this season.

Derrick Johnson had his first pick of the season this week against the Redskins, which he returned for 40 yards being tackled by RGIII saving the TD. In that same game, he broke up two other passes. He also had a good performance in Week 13, recording 9 tackles and is leading his team once again in that particular statistic. He is the Chiefs' leading tackler with more than 30 stops, ahead of safety Eric Berry, who remains second. Seattle FS Earl Thomas is another former Longhorn leading tackler with 80 total stops.

Both Justin Tucker and Phil Dawson continue to have good seasons. Between the two of them, they made all 12 of their Field Goal attempts. All five of Tucker's FGs in this span came in Week 13 where he scored 16 of the 22 total points for his team during the Ravens' win over their archrival, the Steelers.
