    It was a quiet Week 14 around the NFL for former Notre Dame players, with one exception at Lambeau Field.

    Ryan Grant ('05) tallied 10 carries for 85 yards and had one catch for 13 yards. More importantly, Grant had two rushing touchdowns, including a 47-yard run on Green Bay's first possession.

    The touchdown was Grant's longest run since Dec. 2009 and his first score since the 2009 regular season finale against Arizona. Grant's breakout performance of the season could not have come at a better time for the Packers as they continue their pursuit of perfection. With key receiver Greg Jennings potentially sidelined due to a knee injury, Grant and the rushing game may be able to take some pressure off of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

    Grant's second touchdown came in the second quarter on a six-yard run that extended the lead to 31-0.

    Anthony Fasano ('06) had three catches for 56 yards, but Miami fell to Philadelphia, 26-10. His college teammates Derek Landri ('06) and Trevor Laws ('07) had one tackle each for the Eagles.

    Tom Zbikowski ('07) had one tackle in Baltimore's 24-10 over Indianapolis.

    Golden Tate and Seattle will host St. Louis in tonight's Monday Night Football action.
