LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans
Allen and the Jaguars defeated the Titans on Sunday, 24-19. Allen had eight total tackles in the game, seven of which were solo stops. He is currently ranked fifth in the NFL with 74 solo tackles this season.
LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Behind an impressive performance by Cam Newton, the Panthers beat the Eagles Monday night, 30-22. Applewhite was inactive for the fifth straight week after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 7.
LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Broncos won their sixth straight game and improved to 8-3 on the season after beating the Chiefs, 17-9. Brewer continued to play his role as he snapped well on field goals and punts.
WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens
The Chargers lost to the Ravens in overtime, 16-13. Brown remains out with an ankle injury suffered in the preseason, and there is no clear timetable on his return.
LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Although the Raiders were beaten handily by the Bengals on Sunday, Burris had a career day. In the 34-10 loss, Burris recorded a career-high 13 total tackles. It was also the most tackles by any Raider in a game this season.
OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers
Dombrowski returned to practice three weeks ago after sitting out with a foot injury, but it is still uncertain if he will see any game action this season.
LB Heath Farwell – Seattle Seahawks vs. Miami Dolphins
The Seahawks fell to the Dolphins on a last-second field goal, 24-21. Farwell, who plays primarily on special teams, did not record any tackles in the game.
RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Even with former starting running back Willis McGahee out with injury, Hillman did not get as much playing time as expected and had three carries for 9 yards. Former first round pick Knowshon Moreno took the bulk of the carries, rushing 20 times for 85 yards.
QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. St. Louis Rams
Lindley’s came out strong in his first career start, but cooled off and the Cardinals lost to the Rams, 17-13. After starting 7-8 for 80 yards, he finished 31-52 for 312 yards and four interceptions. Still showing confidence in his young quarterback, Cardinals’ coach Ken Whisenhunt has said that Lindley will continue to start.
OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings
The Bears defeated the Vikings on Sunday, 28-10. Louis, however, left the game with a knee injury, and it has been reported that he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. It is a tough loss for the playoff-hopeful Bears, as Louis, who has been arguably their most consistent offensive lineman, will miss the remainder of the season.
LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. Indianapolis Colts
The Bills lost to the Colts on Sunday, 20-13. Morrison was inactive once again, and has yet to see any action this season.
WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Houston Texans
Osgood and the Lions lost a controversial game on Thursday, falling to the Texans 34-31 in overtime. Osgood continues to play primarily on special teams for the Lions, but he did not record any tackles or other stats in the game.
OT Will Robinson – New Orleans Saints vs. San Francisco 49ers
The Saints were defeated by the 49ers on Sunday, 31-21. After being signed just one week ago, Robinson made his season debut on Sunday, filling in for injured right tackle Bryce Harris. It is unsure if Robinson will start next week, as it depends on the status of Harris and Zach Strief, the original starter.
WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. New England Patriots
The Jets were not the most thankful team on Thursday, as they fell to the Patriots, 49-19. Schilens had two catches for 28 yards in the game.

Thanks for sharing this, Matt.
I hope to get in touch with Chester and write something on the blog about him. I’ve heard his story, it’s a pretty cool one.

Hello, I enjoy reading through your article.
I wanted to write a little comment to support you.
Whilst I really like this post, I think there was an spelling error shut to the end with the third sentence.
