Hokies in the NFL: Week 16

News this week as the Saints signed Shayne Graham to replace Garrett Hartley.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

James Anderson, LB Chicago Bears -- With Lance Briggs returning to the Bears lineup, Anderson saw limited time but tallied three total tackles with one as a solo effort.

Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers -- Boykin had another good day for the Packers as he pulled in five passes for 54 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown was a 5-yarder that put the Packers up 7-0 in the first quarter. Boykin caught passes of 15, 5 (TD), 21, 4 and 9 yards. He was the target on Matt Flynn's final pass of the game which would have set the Packers up with the chance to tie it, but it looked like the pass was a little too tall for him.
5 REC, 54 YDS, TD

Duane Brown, OG Houston Texans -- The Texans lost, again. Matt Schaub was sacked thrice and I couldn't tell you who was at fault. Probably the whole Texans team. Even the defense.

Roc Carmichael, CB Philadelphia Eagles -- Roc was active but didn't accumulate any stats. He did help down a punt inside the Chicago 5-yard line that led to a safety.

Kam Chancellor, S Seattle Seahawks -- The Seahawks lost a rare home game to Bruce Arians' Arizona Cardinals, but Kam had a solid game. He picked up his second interception of the year and returned it 16 yards. The interception came in the end zone and ended a potential scoring threat from the Cardinals. He also finished the game with 11 tackles (six solo) and two passes defended. Kam was also flagged for a face mask.
11 TAK, 6 SOLO, INT, 16 YDS, 2 PD

Brandon Flowers, CB Kansas City Chiefs -- Flowers and the Chiefs dropped an important game to the Colts and well, Flowers dropped an interception at the goal line as well. Luckily, that drive ended with a missed Adam Vinatieri field goal so he was off the hook. He finished the day with six tackles (all solo) and the pass defended.

Shayne Graham, K New Orleans Saints -- Graham was a perfect 2-of-2 in his first game this season. The Pulaski County native who turned 36 a few weeks ago made a 40-yarder and a 24-yarder and made the extra point following a Jimmy Graham touchdown.
2/2 FG (40, 34), 1/1 XP

DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins -- Hall had an okay game, intercepting a pass, but getting burned a few times. He was also the man in coverage on at least one Dallas touchdown. Favorite part of the game? Hall lost Dez Bryant in coverage and had the pass been lower, Bryant would have had a touchdown. Hall then proceeded to talk trash, despite getting burned. In all, Hall finished with four solo tackles and two passes defended, plus the interception.
4 TAK, 4 SOLO, 2 PD; INT, 6 YDS

Jayron Hosley, CB New York Giants -- Active, but did not accumulate any stats.

Will Montgomery, G Washington Redskins -- Washington fans, you're up! I watched the game, but honestly didn't pay attention to the o-line.

Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins -- Morgan had a mixed bag today. No receptions, but he had one rush for four yards and one kickoff return for 12 yards.

Eddie Royal, WR San Diego Chargers -- Eddie caught four passes for a team-high 54 yards, including a long of 22 yards.
4 REC, 54 YDS

Andre Smith, TE Cleveland Browns -- Inactive.

Tyrod Taylor, QB Baltimore Ravens -- Tyrod actually got some playing time in the Ravens' blowout loss to the Patriots, and well. It wasn't great. On the first snap he took from the shotgun, the snap went wide and the Patriots recovered for a touchdown. He threw an interception that was returned 74 yards for a touchdown and finished the day 1/4 passing with 2 yards. He rushed three times for 39 yards (one yard shy of the team-high), including a 25 yarder. I was hoping he'd throw a TD or two, but unfortunately (well, I'm a Patriots fan so fortunately for me??) he was responsible for two.
1/4, 2 YDS, INT; 3 RUSH, 39 YDS

Darryl Tapp, DE/LB Washington Redskins -- Tapp earned a solo tackle as he stopped Demarco Murray for no gain. He also had some screen time after something bewildering, but I can't remember what. Probably that the Cowboys didn't completely implode.

Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles -- Vick actually saw some playing time, but the only real play he ran was a hand off that Bryce Brown took 65 yards for a touchdown. He knelt the ball twice so technically he rushed twice for -2 yards.
2 RUSH, -2 YDS

Ryan Williams, RB Arizona Cardinals -- Let's see if you can guess it.

Jason Worilds, LB Pittsburgh Steelers -- Worilds had another decent day, earning a sack, tackle for loss and three solo tackles. Worilds has a career high seven sacks, which puts him first on the team stat list.

Practice Squad:
Corey Fuller (WR Detroit Lions), Vinston Painter (OT, Denver Broncos), Bruce Taylor (LB, Cincinnati Bengals)

Injured reserve:
Jeff King, TE Arizona Cardinals --
season-ending knee surgery
David Wilson, RB New York Giants -- season-ending neck injury
