Aztecs in the NFL: Week 14

Farwell Aztec for life

Heath Farwell, a special teams co-captain for the Seahawks, recorded five tackles on Sunday in a 58-0 victory over the Cardinals (Seahawks.com)

LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. New York Jets
The Jaguars fell to the Jets on Sunday, 17-10. Allen had six total tackles in the loss, and still ranks fifth in the NFL this season with 85 solo tackles.

LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Atlanta Falcons
The Panthers knocked off one of league’s best teams on Sunday, defeating the Falcons, 30-20. Applewhite did not play, however, as was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list last week because of a hamstring injury.

LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders
The Broncos continued their hot streak on Thursday, winning their eighth straight game by beating the Raiders, 26-13. Brewer continued to snap well on both field goals and punts for the Broncos, as they made all four of their field goal attempts and punted twice for an average of 44.5 yards. 

WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Chargers defeated the Ravens on Sunday, 34-24. Brown sat out once again as he is still recovering from the broken ankle he suffered in the preseason. He is not expected to return this season.

LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos
Burris had seven total tackles in Thursday’s loss to the Broncos. He currently ranks sixth in the NFL amongst all rookies this season with 79 total tackles.

OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Dombrowski did not play in the Chargers’ win over the Steelers as he was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list two weeks ago.

LB Heath Farwell – Seattle Seahawks vs. Arizona Cardinals
The Seahawks destroyed the struggling Cardinals on Sunday, 58-0. Farwell was all over the field on special teams, and recorded five total tackles in the blowout victory. It was a season-high for Farwell, who is one of the Seahawks’ co-captains on special teams.

RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders
Hillman had four carries for 24 yards in the Broncos’ win over the Raiders on Thursday. He remains the second option running back behind Knowshon Moreno, who carried the ball 32 times for 119 yards. 

QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks
The Cardinals woes continued on Sunday in the blowout loss to the Seahawks. John Skelton started the game at quarterback, but was benched after going 11-22 for 74 yards and four interceptions. Lindley replaced Skelton in the third quarter, and went 8-17 for 59 yards.

OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings
The Bears fell to the Vikings on Sunday, 21-14. Louis, who missed his second straight game, is out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee. His importance to the team has become evident in the last two weeks, as the Bears have lost both games without Louis in the lineup.

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers
In a division rivalry, the Lions lost to the Packers on Sunday, 27-20. Osgood continued to play on special teams for the Lions, but did not record any stats in the game.

OT Will Robinson – New Orleans Saints vs. New York Giants
The Saints fell to the Giants on Sunday, 52-27. Robinson did not start the game, but saw time in a reserve role filling in for injured right tackle Zach Strief. He will remain a reliable backup for the Saints, as they have had injury concerns on the offensive line all season. 

WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jets beat the Jaguars on Sunday, improving their record to 6-7. Schilens had two catches for 27 yards in the victory.

Aztecs in the NFL: Week 13

Vincent Brown Aztecs For Life

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.

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.
