Aztecs in the NFL: Week 12

Former Aztec offensive lineman Will Robinson made his season debut on Sunday for the New Orleans Saints

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.

Aztecs in the NFL: Week 9

LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Detroit Lions
The Jaguars’ struggles continued as they fell to the Lions, 31-14. Allen recorded six tackles in the loss, all solo stops, and he is currently tied for seventh in the league with 50 solo tackles this season. Allen also reached a career milestone on Sunday, as he recorded his 200th total tackle.

LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Washington Redskins
Applewhite was inactive in Week 9 after suffering a leg injury in Week 7. In a battle of young, mobile quarterbacks, the Panthers beat the Redskins, 21-13, and Cam Newton got the upper hand on Robert Griffin III. Applewhite’s status for Week 10 is uncertain.

LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Broncos continued their solid play as they defeated the Bengals, 31-23, and secured their third straight victory. Brewer snapped well on punts and field goals, and recorded his second tackle of the season while covering a punt. He has now recorded one tackle in each of the last two games.

WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chargers dominated the Chiefs on Thursday, 31-13. 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 out until December.

LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Burris and the Raiders fell to the Buccaneers on Sunday, 42-32. Burris had six total tackles in the loss, giving him 38 so far this season.

OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
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. Minnesota Vikings
Behind emerging rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, the Seahawks came away with the win over the Vikings, 30-20. Farwell recorded one tackle on special teams, bringing his season total to 10.

RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Although Hillman was unable to repeat his breakout performance in Week 8, the Broncos still handled the Bengals. He saw limited touches in the game, as he had one carry for 4 yards and one reception for 5 yards.

QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. Green Bay Packers
The Cardinals lost to the Packers on Sunday, 31-17. Lindley remains the backup quarterback behind John Skelton, and still has to take any snaps this season.

OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Tennessee Titans
The Bears are quickly making a name for themselves throughout the league after an overwhelming victory over the Titans, 51-20. Louis continued to block well for the Bears, and their record improved to 7-1, tied for second-best in the NFL.

LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. Houston Texans
The Bills’ defense couldn’t stop Arian Foster and Andre Johnson on Sunday, and fell to the Texans, 21-9. Morrison was inactive for the game, and has yet to see any action this season for unknown reasons.

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Osgood was unable to record any tackles on special teams, but the Lions were able to win their second straight game and improve their record to 4-4.

In the battle of elite quarterbacks, Tom Brady came out on top and the Patriots knocked off the Broncos, 31-21. Brewer continued to snap well for the Broncos, as they were 3-for-3 on PATs and punted the ball three times for an average of 45.7 yards per punt.

Although Farwell didn’t match the production of his former teammate, Applewhite, it was Farwell whose team got the win. Farwell had one tackle in the game, giving him five total tackles this season.

Hillman saw a limited number of touches in the loss to the Patriots. He had three carries for 9 yards and one catch for 4 yards. He has 84 yards from scrimmage this season.

Louis and his fellow offensive lineman were dominant in the Bears’ blowout victory over the Jaguars. They allowed just one sack on quarterback Jay Cutler, and helped their team rush for 214 yards.

LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. San Francisco 49ers
Morrison was inactive once again, and the Bills were beaten by the 49ers, 45-3. Morrison has yet to record any stats this season, and it is uncertain when he will return to action.

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions, BYE

WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. Houston Texans
In the Monday night game, Schilens and the Jets came up short and were defeated by the Texans, 23-17. He had four catches for 29 yards, and nearly came up with a surprise onside kick.
