While the Irish football season nears its final weeks, the NFL is in full swing, just past the midpoint. It was a busy week on the gridiron, and here's a look at how former Notre Dame football players performed in Week 10 of the NFL season.
Miami's Anthony Fasano ('06) turned in a solid performance for the second week in a row. After catching two touchdown passes in Week 9 at Kansas City, Fasano had three receptions for 60 yards in a 20-9 victory against Washington.
Philadelphia dropped to 3-6 following a loss to Arizona. Defensive lineman Derek Landri ('06) registered three tackles, including one sack and a tackle for a loss, while Trevor Laws ('07) also had two tackles for the Eagles.
Seattle surprised Baltimore, 22-17 at CenturyLink Field. Golden Tate had three catches for 46 yards in the win. Tom Zbikowski ('07) recorded one tackle for the Ravens.
Chicago crushed Detroit, 37-13, in a battle of NFC North foes at Soldier Field. Lions receiver Maurice Stovall ('06) had one special teams tackle.
San Francisco continued its surprising run, defeating New York, 27-20 and improving to 8-1 this season. Justin Tuck ('05) had one pass deflection for the Giants.
Safety David Bruton ('09) had one solo tackle for Denver in a 17-10 win over Kansas City.
New England bounced back from consecutive losses, beating the New York Jets, 37-16 on Sunday night. Sergio Brown ('10) made one tackle for the Patriots.
In ESPN's Monday Night Football action, Green Bay continued its hot streak, defeating Minnesota, 45-7. The Packers improved to 9-0, while the Vikings dropped to 2-7. Ryan Grant ('05) had just six yards on eight carries for the Packers, but also had a 17-yard reception to help set up a touchdown in the third quarter.
Kyle Rudolph provided one of the lone bright spots for the Vikings. The former Irish tight end caught three passes for 37 yards, including an outstanding one-handed catch late in the fourth quarter. But as the YouTube video above shows, one-handed grabs are nothing new for the Cincinnati native.
