Oklahoma Sooners in the NFL: Adrian Peterson rolls along, Samaje Perine makes season debut

However, it was mostly a tough Week 6 for many Sooners in the NFL.

Baker Mayfield followed up last week’s win with a tough outing against the Chargers. Mayfield went 22-of-46 for 238 passing yards, a touchdown, two interceptions and a two-point conversion in the loss in Cleveland.

Baker was under pressure most of the afternoon and appeared to sustain an ankle injury, but it didn’t cause him to miss any game time nor is it thought to be serious enough to put his status in doubt for next week’s game against the Bucs in Tampa Bay.

Joe Mixon carried the ball 11 times for 64 yards and a touchdown and added four catches for 20 yards in a tight divisional loss against the Steelers.

Jordan Evans two solo tackles along with an assist for the Bengals on the afternoon.

Adrian Peterson came back from last week’s limited performance to finish with 17 carries for 97 rushing yards against the Panthers. Samaje Perine also made his regular season debut in Washington and gained three yards on his one carry in the home win.

Kenny Stills caught one pass for 35 yards and added a two-point conversion in the Dolphins’ 31-28 win over the Bears.

Although covered up for most of the afternoon, Stills managed to show off his speed and precise route-running ability when given the chance.

Dede Westbrook three receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown for the Jaguars in a blowout loss in Dallas. He did, however, have a pretty impressive TD celebration.

Jermaine Gresham caught one pass of 26 yards in a loss in Minnesota.

Mark Andrews caught two passes for 20 yards in the Ravens’ 21-0 rout of Titans in Nashville. Tony Jefferson recorded two solo tackles along with an assisted tackle and a sack for the Baltimore defense.

Jordan Phillips recorded two solo tackles in the Bills’ loss against the Texans.

Lane Johnson and Sterling Shepard were in action on Thursday Night Football as the Eagles defeated the Giants in an NFC East showdown. Shep had three receptions for 37 yards for the Giants, while Johnson helped the Eagles to a 34-13 win on the road.
