LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Buffalo Bills
The Jaguars fell to the Bills on Sunday, 34-18. In what has been a tough season for Jacksonville, Allen has been a consistent bright spot. He had nine total tackles in the game, and is ranked fifth in the NFL with 81 solo tackles this season.

LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Panthers lost to the Chiefs on Sunday, 27-21. Applewhite was inactive for the sixth straight week after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 7. 

LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Arguably the hottest team in the league, the Broncos won their seventh straight game on Sunday as they beat the Buccaneers, 31-23. Brewer continued to snap well for the Broncos, but did not record any tackles in punt coverage.

WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Chargers were defeated by the Bengals on Sunday, 20-13. This loss dampened the chances of Brown playing this season, as it has been reported that his return will likely depend on the team’s playoff chances. Brown is not expected to return unless he is needed for a playoff push, which is unlikely for the struggling Chargers.

LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders vs. Cleveland Browns
In a tight battle, the Raiders lost to the Browns on Sunday, 20-17. Burris recorded eight total tackles in the loss.

OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Battling a foot injury all season, Dombrowski was put on injured reserve last week. The move officially declared him out for the remainder of the season.

LB Heath Farwell – Seattle Seahawks vs. Chicago Bears
The Seahawks defeated the Bears on Sunday, 23-17. Farwell continued to play an important special teams role for Seattle, but did not record any tackles in the game.

RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In the Broncos victory over the Buccaneers, Hillman had five carries for 29 yards. Even with Willis McGahee hurt, Hillman remains the second running back option behind Knowshon Moreno, who carried the ball 20 times for 69 yards.

QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Jets
With a relatively young and inexperienced offensive line, Lindley had a tough time getting into a rhythm in his second career start and the Cardinals lost to the Jets, 7-6. He finished 10-31 for 72 yards and threw one interception. 

OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks
After suffering a season-ending knee injury last week, Louis was forced to watch on Sunday as the Bears fell to the Seahawks. He will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Morrison was inactive once again in the Bills’ victory over the Jaguars. He was released by the Bills on Monday, and it is uncertain if any other team will make a push to sign him for the remainder of the season.

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Indianapolis Colts
The Lions were the latest team to fall to arguably the biggest surprise of the season, the Colts. In the 35-33 loss, Osgood was active on special teams and recorded one tackle.

OT Will Robinson – New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons
The Saints fell to the Falcons on Thursday, 23-13. With tackle Zach Strief back in the lineup, Robinson did not start, but is still excited to be a part of the team. Here is a recent article about Robinson making his return to the NFL after working as a bouncer.                                    

WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. Arizona Cardinals
Schilens’ got the upper hand against his former teammate Ryan Lindley on Sunday, as the Jets knocked off the Cardinals. Schilens finished with two catches for 5 yards.

LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans
In an offensive showdown that saw nearly 1,100 yards of total offense, the Jaguars lost to the Texans in overtime, 43-37. Allen was all over the field on defense, recording 15 total tackles. He now ranks fifth in the league with 67 solo tackles and is tied for eighth with 85 total tackles.

LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Panthers fell to the Buccaneers, 27-21. Applewhite was inactive for the fourth straight week after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 7. His status for Week 12 is uncertain.

LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. San Diego Chargers
The Broncos continued their strong play and won their fifth straight game as they defeated the Chargers, 30-23. Brewer remained solid with his snapping duties, helping the special teams unit make three field goals and punt five times for an average of 50.4 yards per punt.

WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Denver Broncos
Brown remains out with an ankle injury suffered in the preseason. It was reported last week that he was running once again and is making progress, but there is no clear timetable on his return.

LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders vs. New Orleans Saints
Without star running back Darren McFadden for the second straight week, the injury-depleted Raiders could not handle the high-powered offense of the Saints, and lost 38-17. Burris, however, had an impressive outing on the defensive side of the ball with eight total tackles.

OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. Denver Broncos
Dombrowski returned to practice two 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, BYE

RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. San Diego Chargers
After an injury to starting running back Willis McGahee, Hillman came in and helped the Broncos take down the struggling Chargers. He had 12 carries for 43 yards and two catches for 16 yards. He will likely start at running back next week, as McGahee is expected to be out 6-8 weeks.

QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. Atlanta Falcons
After a shaky start by John Skelton, Cardinals’ head coach Ken Whisenhunt gave Lindley a chance to take over under center. Lindley, who had to battle back from a questionable fumble call that resulted in a Falcons touchdown, was 9-20 for 64 yards in his first-ever NFL action. In a game that went down to the final minutes, the Cardinals lost to the Falcons, 23-19. It has not yet been decided who will start at quarterback next week, but it seems likely that Lindley is now the guy in Arizona.

OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. San Francisco 49ers
In the battle of backup quarterbacks, Jason Campbell and the Bears lost to Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers on Monday night, 32-7. Louis and his offensive lineman had their hands full with the 49ers’ pass rushers, and the Bears’ record dropped to 7-3.

LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins
The Bills defeated the Dolphins, 19-14, but Morrison was inactive once again. He has yet to see any game action this season.

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers
In a heated division battle, the Lions fell to the Packers, 24-20. Osgood continues to play on special teams but did not record any tackles in the game.

WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. St. Louis Rams
The Jets beat the Rams on Sunday, 27-13, and Schilens had a solid game. He hauled in four catches for 48 yards and one touchdown. It was his second touchdown of the season and ninth of his career.

Aztecs in the NFL: Week 8

LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Green Bay Packers
In their first game since losing star running back Maurice Jones-Drew, the Jaguars fell to the Packers, 24-15. Allen had a strong outing with seven total tackles and a pass deflection, but it wasn’t enough to take down the Packers, who won their third straight game.

LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Chicaco Bears
Applewhite was inactive in Week 8 after injuring his leg the week prior. The Panthers suffered a tough loss, 23-22, after a last-second field goal by the Bears. Applewhite’s status for next week is uncertain.

LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. New Orleans Saints
In the Sunday night game, the Broncos dominated the Saints, 34-14. Brewer snapped the ball well on punts and field goals, and even recorded his first tackle of the season while covering a punt.

WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Cleveland Browns
In a low-scoring defensive battle, the Chargers lost to the Browns, 7-6. Brown remains out with an ankle injury suffered in the preseason, and his recovery has taken longer than expected. According to an article by CBS Sports, Brown is likely to sit out another month.

LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs
In an AFC West matchup, the Raiders defeated the Chiefs on Sunday, 26-16. Burris had another solid outing, as he recorded seven tackles, good for second-most on the team.

OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. Cleveland Browns
Dombrowski remains out with a foot injury, and his return this season is unlikely. It was recently reported by CBS Sports that he is recovering from a cyst on his foot, and his chances of playing this season are slim.

LB Heath Farwell – Seattle Seahawks vs. Detroit Lions
The Seahawks were beat by the Lions on Sunday, 28-24. For just the second time this season, Farwell failed to record a tackle in the game.

RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. New Orleans Saints
In front of a national audience in the Sunday night NFL game, Hillman had his best game yet as a Bronco. He had 14 carries for 86 yards, averaging 6.1 yards per rush. Hillman showcased his speed and ability to get to the edge even at the professional level, and proved that he can contribute as a rookie.

QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers
The Cardinals had their hands full on Monday, facing one of the most physical defenses in the league. They were held to just a field goal as quarterback John Skelton struggled to get in a rhythm against the division-rival 49ers, and lost 24-3. Lindley remains the backup, and with Skelton getting pressured and sacked often, it is very possible Lindley will see some action this season.

OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Carolina Panthers
The Bears improved to 6-1 after beating the Panthers on a game-winning field goal, and Louis continued to play well at right guard.

LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills, BYE

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks
The Lions won in dramatic fashion on Sunday, scoring the go-ahead touchdown with 20 seconds left to beat the Seahawks, 28-24. Osgood played well on special teams, recording two tackles in the game.

WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins
The Jets struggled on Sunday, falling to the Dolphins, 30-9. Schilens had four catches for 29 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter, the lone touchdown for the Jets. It was his first touchdown of the season, and the eighth of his career.
