- Performance of the Week: Second-year safety Sergio Brown ('10) recorded seven tackles, including five solo tackles in New England's 35-21 win over San Diego. The Maywood, Ill. native's biggest play, however, was a third-quarter interception to preserve the Patriots' 20-7 lead.

- Kyle Rudolph had his first career reception, a 15-yard catch in Minnesota's 24-20 loss to Tampa Bay. The game featured former Irish players at center for both teams - John Sullivan ('07) started for the Vikings and Jeff Faine ('03), the Bucs' offensive co-captain.

- Seattle's Golden Tate caught two passes for 12 yards, but the Seahawks were shut out by Pittsburgh, 24-0.

- Though he did not play a significant role in Miami's game on Sunday, tight end Anthony Fasano ('06) had five catches for 82 yards in last week's Monday night game against the Patriots.

- Baltimore's Tom Zbikowski ('07) had six tackles in a 26-13 loss to Tennessee.

- David Bruton ('09) recorded one solo tackle in Denver's 24-22 victory over Cincinnati.
