Probably one of the coolest pictures of James Anderson you'll seee - Grant Halverson
Thin this week with off-weeks for a lot of Hokies.
As with last year, no offensive lineman are mentioned because it's just too hard to really tell how they performed. The Hokies in the NFL are below in alphabetical order:
James Anderson, LB Carolina Panthers- Anderson and the Panthers returned from their bye week and fell to the Cowboys in a tight game. Anderson tallied 12 tackles with seven coming as solo efforts and one as a tackle for a loss. Anderson also defended a pass and stopped a 3rd and 4 run for a loss to force a field goal. Anderson was also penalized 15 yards for a horsecollar tackle.
12 TAK, 7 SOLO, TFL, PD
Shayne Graham, K Houston Texans- Graham and the Texans steamrolled the Ravens in a bit of a surprising result (the margin, not necessarily who won). Graham was 2 of 2 on the day with field goals of 33 and 29 yards. Graham also converted all five extra points on the day.
2/2 FG (33, 29), 5/5 XP
DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins- Hall tallied three tackles with all three as solo efforts in the Redskins' loss to the Giants. Hall also defended a pass and was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness.
3 TAK, 3 SOLO, 1 PD
Jayron Hosley, CB New York Giants- Hosley got burn by Santana Moss on a 30-yard touchdown pass that looked like it might be the game-winner for the Redskins. Luckily, for Hosley, Eli Manning connected with Victor Cruz on a 77-yard touchdown to win the game for the Giants. Hosley also totaled five tackles--all solo--and recovered a fumble to seal the win for the Giants.
3 TAK, 3 SOLO, 1 FUM REC
Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins- Morgan pulled in two passes for 16 yards, but had a 30-yard touchdown catch nullified by a penalty. :( . Morgan also had a tackle as he was credited with the tackle on Hosley's fumble recovery.
2 REC, 16 YDS, TAK
Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles- Vick and the Eagles were off this week.
David Wilson, RB New York Giants- Wilson had no carries, but did return four kicks for 106 yards, including a 32 yarder. Wilson returned a kick to the 23, and two plays later the Giants scored the game-winner.
4 RET, 106 YDS
Inactive players: CB Roc Carmichael, Houston Texans; RB Darren Evans, Tennessee Titans (practice squad); WR Danny Coale, Dallas Cowboys (practice squad); TE Andre Smith, Indianapolis Colts (practice squad).
Player of the week: James Anderson takes this one very easily.
