New, 1 comment

Marquise Goodwin showcased his speed on Monday night.

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

In a highly entertaining Monday night football game, Marquise Goodwin broke out for over 100 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He capped off his second touchdown with arguably one of the most creative touchdown celebrations this season.

In other NFL Horns news: Jamaal Charles made his season debut, the Oakland Raiders cut Derrick Johnson, and Marcus Johnson caught his first career touchdown pass and suffered an unfortunate season-ending injury in the same game. Check out how all the other former Longhorns performed this past week.

Week 6 Injuries: D’Onta Foreman (PUP-List), Kenny Vaccaro (elbow), Malcom Brown (knee)

Injured Reserve: DeShon Elliott (fractured forearm), Chris Warren III (knee), Fozzy Whittaker (ACL), Earl Thomas (broken left tibia), Sam Acho (torn pectoral muscle)

Malcolm Brown (RB-LAR)

Season Totals: 23 carries for 117 yards (5.1 YPC), 2 receptions for 18 yards (9 YPC)

Last Week: 23-20 win at Denver Broncos

After not receiving any touches the past two weeks, Brown ran for 24 yards on five carries (4.8 YPC).

This Week: at San Francisco 49ers (Sun. 3:25 p.m. CBS)

Jamaal Charles (RB-JAC)

Season Totals: 5 carries for 5 yards (1 YPC)

Last Week: 40-7 loss at Dallas Cowboys

Charles had five carries for five yards in his first game back. It’s great to see him back on the field nonetheless.

This Week: vs. Houston Texans (Sun. 12:00 p.m. CBS)

Marquise Goodwin (WR-SF)

Season Totals: 9 receptions for 180 yards (20 YPC) - 3 TDs, 1 carry for -1 yard

Last Week: 33-30 loss at Green Bay Packers

Returning from a hamstring injury, Goodwin warmed up without a shirt in near 30-degree weather and had his best game of the season, by far. The speedster tore apart Green Bay’s defense for 126 yards on four catches with two touchdowns.

On his first touchdown, Goodwin beat everyone deep and C.J. Beathard placed a perfect ball right in his hands for a 67-yard score.

His second touchdown of the night came on a filthy ran route. Goodwin sold the inside-post route and planted back to the outside to shake Packers cornerback Tramon Williams out of his shoes. After catching the ball, he minimized the space between him and Williams to reach the corner of the end zone. Things are looking up for San Francisco’s offense if Beathard continues to play well.

This Week: vs. Los Angeles Rams (Sun. 3:25 p.m. CBS)

Marcus Johnson (WR-IND)

Season Totals: 6 receptions for 102 yards (17 YPC), 1 carry for -2 yards

Last Week: 42-34 loss at New York Jets

Just as Johnson role as a receiver was increasing, his season was ended because of a dirty late hit out-of-bounds after returning a kick 23 yards. He suffered a torn ligament in his right ankle that will require surgery. The Colts placed him on injured reserve.

Johnson was having the best game of his young NFL career, too. He caught his first career touchdown pass on a 34-yard pass from Andrew Luck. He finished the game with two receptions for 52 yards.

This Week: vs. Buffalo Bills (Sun. 12:00 p.m. CBS)

Geoff Swaim (TE-DAL)

Season Totals: 16 receptions for 184 yards (11.5 YPC) - TD

Last Week: 40-7 win vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Swaim hauled in two receptions for 21 yards in a surprising blowout victory for the Cowboys.

This Week: at Washington Redskins (Sun. 3:25 p.m. CBS)

Tyrone Swoopes (TE-SEA)

Season Totals: 1 reception for 23 yards (23 YPC)

Last Week: 27-3 win at Oakland Raiders

Swoopes was called up from Seattle’s practice squad and made his first career NFL start at tight end on Sunday. On their opening drive, Swoopes hauled in a 23-yard reception and rambled down inside the two-yard line. The former collegiate quarterback may have a future at the tight end position in Seattle.

This Week: BYE

Trey Hopkins (OG-CIN)

Last Week: 28-21 loss vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

With Hopkins starting at center, his current replacement at guard has given up 12 quarterback pressures on the year. The Bengals desperately need Billy Price back at center so Hopkins can refill the void at the guard position.

This Week: at Kansas City Chiefs (Sun. 7:20 p.m. NBC)

Desmond Harrison (OT-CLE)

Last Week: 38-14 loss vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Harrison got called for a facemask penalty to negate a 31-yard run for Carlos Hyde. The rookie continues to have his ups and downs.

This Week: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Sun. 12:00 p.m. FOX)

Connor Williams (OT-DAL)

Last Week: 40-7 win vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Williams had a couple really nice pull blocks in a dominating offensive performance against that superb Jaguars defense.

This Week: at Washington Redskins (Sun. 3:25 p.m. CBS)

Poona Ford (DT-SEA)

Season Totals: 3 tackles

Season Totals: 17 tackles

Last Week: 27-3 loss vs. Seattle Seahawks

The veteran linebacker notched three solo tackles in what turned out to be his last game in a Raiders uniform. On Tuesday, the Raiders waived Johnson after just six games. The trend of questionable management decisions continues for Oakland.
