Sooners In The NFL | Week Three

Ronald Martinez

Another pretty slow week in the NFL for the former Sooners. DeMarco Murray easily being the standout with over 200 yard of total offense against his former teammate in Sam Bradford (who was once again let down by virtually everyone around him). Ryan Broyles made his return seeing his first action of the 2013 season following his second ACL injury last year.

It's criminal that Adrian Peterson is being paired with a quarterback like Christian Ponder. Absolutely criminal. The Vikings fell to 0-3 on the season.

In addition to Murray and Bradford going at it, two more former teammates and best friends Kenny Stills and Tony Jefferson face off in New Orleans with Stills' Saints coming out on top rather easily.

Frank Alexander (Panthers) - not active

Sam Bradford (Rams) - 29-for-48, 240 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT

"If you give DeMarco holes, he can make great cuts and can take it all the way," said linebacker Sean Lee. "He's a complete back, and so it was fun to see him break out a little bit."  -
