Oklahoma Sooners Football: Sooners in the NFL – Week 4

A Monday night clash between Sammy B’s Vikings and Shep’s Giants provided the final curtain call on a wild weekend of football.

It was a Sooner showdown on Monday Night Football, as Sam Bradford continued his hot start to the season in a dominant 24-10 Vikings win against Sterling Shepard and the Giants. It was a tough night for Shep, catching four passes for only 30 yards against the stifling Minnesota defense. Bradford, on the other hand, was in a groove all night, going 26 of 36 for 262 yards and this dart to Kyle Rudolph in the end zone for six:

DeMarco Murray played another great game in a Titans loss in Houston, rushing 25 times for a game-high 95 yards and two touchdowns, along with 24 yards on two receptions. Murray is currently the league’s 5th leading rusher with 340 yards through the first four games.


Damien Williams got the start in a crowded Dolphins backfield and carried two times for nine yards and added a catch for six yards in Thursday night’s loss at Cincy. Kenny Stills also started for Miami but caught only one pass on three targets against a smothering Bengals secondary. That one catch, however, went for 74 yards and this deep touchdown:

Kenny showing he’s still got those wheels:

Tony Jefferson has led the Cardinals in tackles in every game so far this season, and added another game-high nine, including two tackles for loss, in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. Though it’s still early, Jefferson appears to be flying toward his first pro bowl this season.

Broncos linebacker Corey Nelson got on the stat sheet again this week with three tackles in Denver’s win in Tampa Bay on Sunday. Gerald McCoy finished with two tackles and assisted on a sack for the Buccaneers in the same game.

Starting defensive end Stacy McGee registered three tackles in a thrilling one point win for the Raiders in Baltimore.

Chris Chester is the starting right guard on the Earth-moving Falcons offensive line that currently protects the NFL’s No. 1 passing offense and paves the way for the No. 6 rushing attack through Atlanta’s 3-1 start to the season.

Landry Jones saw the field late in the Steelers blowout win against the Chiefs on Sunday night, and thankfully ended the game with zero interceptions.

These Sooners also saw action for their respective teams this weekend:
