Oklahoma Sooners Football: Sooners in the NFL – A Pair of Sooner QBs in the Spotlight

New, 1 comment

While Bradford was blanketed in Philly, Landry dueled all he could with Brady.

NFL: New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Sam Bradford had a tough time finding space against a determined Eagles defense that killed a storybook ending to Slingin’ Sammy’s return to (heavily booing) Philly. Philadelphia limited the Vikings so-far-flawless quarterback to 24-of-41 passing for 224 yards, one touchdown and one pick, and exposed the limitations of the Minnesota offense. No offensive line and ZERO run game (sans AD28) means the same ol’ story for Sam Bradford. Here’s to hoping they keep him upright through the season.

Landry Jones, making his season-starting debut for the Pittsburgh Steelers, had an afternoon that WASN’T DISASTROUS. ‘Stache Bro finished 29-of-47 for 281 yards and one touchdown and one *(1) interception. The afternoon ended in a loss for Landry’s Steelers. But at least we didn’t have to see Landry going all, you know...

DeMarco Murray scored again for the Titans, coming off of 25 carries for 107 yards and three catches for 20 yards. Murray currently sits at third in the league in rushing.

Kenny Stills had a bounce-back, stellar game for the Dolphins with five receptions for 100 yards and this game-sealing touchdown:

Stills’ fellow Dolphin Damien Williams rushed four times for 16 yards and scored a touchdown for the second consecutive week in the same game against the Bills.

Aaron Colvin compiled three tackles for the Jaguars in a loss against Oakland.

Gerald McCoy registered three tackles, one sack and one fumble forced/recovered for the Bucs win in San Franscisco.

Jermaine Gresham started and had two receptions for 15 yards in a bizarre tie in the Cardinals and Seahawks Sunday primetime game in Arizona. Tony Jefferson registered three tackles in the same game.

Aaron Ripkowski finished with three rushes for eight yards, and added an eight-yard catch in the Packers win against Chicago.

Sterling Shepard caught five passes for 32 yards on seven targets in the early-bird game across the pond in England, as the Giants beat the Rams (probably a game that everyone gladly missed).

Finally, Corey Nelson is making the most of his playing time in Denver as he finished with five tackles in a big Monday night Broncos win against the Texans.
