With Brady Quinn, Kyle McCarthy and Chris Stewart among the former players watching from the sidelines, the Fighting Irish gutted out a 16-14 Senior Day victory against Boston College on Saturday.

Once teammates at Notre Dame, Quinn and McCarthy reunited with Denver in 2010. The Broncos defeated the New York Jets on Thursday night, 17-13, with the short week allowing the players to make the trip to South Bend. Another former, and now current teammate, David Bruton ('09) made one tackle for the Broncos.

In other NFL news, Derek Landri ('06) came through with a clutch fumble recovery in Philadelphia's 17-10 win at New York. With the Giants threatening to tie the game, Jason Babin hit Eli Manning from behind, and Landri fell on the football to seal the victory. He also had two tackles and a pass deflection for the Eagles, while fellow defensive lineman Trevor Laws ('07) made three tackles in the win.

Justin Tuck ('05) had five tackles for the Giants, who dropped to 6-4.

After falling behind in the first half, Detroit outscored Carolina, 35-8 after the break. Maurice Stovall ('06) had one special teams tackle and the Lions won, 49-35.

Baltimore defeated Cincinnati, 31-24 to improve to 7-3 this season. Tom Zbikowski ('07) had one tackle for the Ravens.

In Sunday's offensive news, a pair of former Irish tight ends caught one-yard touchdown passes. Anthony Fasano ('06) scored late in the first quarter to give Miami a 7-3 lead over Buffalo. Fasano finished with two catches for eight yards and the Dolphins won 35-8.

Kyle Rudolph had three catches for seven yards and caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Christian Ponder in the fourth quarter, to cut Oakland's lead to six. Minnesota still fell short against the Raiders, 27-21.

Green Bay improved to 10-0 with a 35-26 win over Tampa Bay. Ryan Grant ('05) finished with four carries for 16 yards for the Packers.

Golden Tate had one reception for 16 yards and Seattle knocked off St. Louis, 24-7.

New England hosts Kansas City in tonight's Monday Night Football action. Sergio Brown ('10) should be in action for the Patriots.
