Horns in the NFL: Week 2

Sorry for being late in publishing an update on Horns in the NFL this week. I have been really busy these past few days, securing my media sideline credentials and preparing to interview players (Robison, Cu Brown and Loeffler) during the NFL International game next week between the Vikings and the Steelers at Wembley Stadium in London where I reside now. The terrible performance of the Longhorns last Saturday didn't help either, and my spirit just really wasn't into football.

The truth is our current Longhorns in the NFL had a great weekend. Can we find a way to get some of these guys back at Austin, please????.

Jamaal Charles showed up for his date with the end zone once again (good for my fantasy team). He led the Chiefs with 55 yards in 16 attempts and became a weapon in the passing game with 8 catches for 48 yards and a TD. He is without a doubt the key for the Andy Reid's offense. The Chiefs are 2-0 and it's in larger due to Jamaal Charles. The Packers TE Jermichael Finley also scored a TD during their win over the Redskins, having caught 6 passes for 65 yards. Not much more to highlight among offensive players.

On the other side of the ball, Brian Robison stood out after returning a fumble (forced by Jared Allen) 61 yards for a TD (the first of his career) during the Vikings' game vs the Bears. Although the score didn't help the Vikings win the game, it kept them in the fight. Earl Thomas continued showing his game-changing ability, this time with an INT during the Seahawks victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Michael Griffin jumped offside trying to block the Randy Bullock winning FG attempt, which he of course missed since he's an Aggie. Brian Orakpo had his first sack of the season. Other defensive players who had good games were Derrick Johnson, Kenny Vaccaro and Aaron Williams.

The bad news came with Justin Tucker, who uncharacteristically missed his two FGs attempts (50, 44), but this didn't prevent his team from winning the game. Fozzy Whitakker lost a fumble during a kickoff return, but it was later recovered by one of his teammates. Marquise Goodwin had to sit out the Bills game with an injury to his right hand. Michael Huff lost his starter spot in favour to Matt Elam after his struggles against the Broncos in week 1.

Off the field news: Emmanuel Acho was signed to the New York Giants Practice Squad and Chris Ogbonnaya will now earn more carries, due to RB Trent Richardson being trade to the Colts.
