A weekend full of highlights for your Sooners in the NFL...So let’s get to them!

DeMarco Murray enjoyed another strong outing with 21 carries, 92 yards and one touchdown in a Titans home win against Denver.

The game with the most Sooner drama this weekend featured the Cardinals visiting the Dolphins. There were plenty of big plays made during this near-overtime game that ended with Miami squeezing out a win by a field goal as regulation time expired. Jermaine Gresham caught 5 passes for a team-high 45 yards, while defensive teammate Tony Jefferson (and Pro-Bowl candidate) grabbed a game-high 10 tackles in the loss. Dolphins wideout Kenny Stills came up big in the win with 6 receptions for 97 yards and this touchdown/handshake:
Damien Williams rushed 5 times for 7 yards and added 2 catches for 1 yard one touchdown for Miami, while Jordan Phillips defended a pass and blocked this kick:
Speaking of defensive plays, Demontre Hurst picked off Matt Stafford, but his Bears came up short against the Lions in Detroit:
