Sammy Vegas - NFL "N" sider - The Return

The 2006 NFL season is speeding by faster than Tony Romo and his slave-bred legs. Speaking of Romo, do yourself a favor and check out Tony, a blog written by none other than Drew Bledsoe. Really.

Anyway, onto this week's Huskers in the NFL.

Josh Brown (K Seattle Seahawks): Josh continues to be a fantasy stud this year as he compiled 4 field goals and 2 extra points. His Seahawks, who beat Green Bay 34-24 on MNF, look to be back on track with RB Shaun Alexander and QB Matt Hasselbeck back from injuries.

Kris Brown (K Houston Texans): Houston continues to struggle as they were destroyed in New York by the Jets 26-11. Brown was 1 for 2 in field goal attempts, but quite frankly, does it really matter?

Ralph Brown (CB Cleveland Browns): Ralph has seen his playing time increase as the season has progressed as he recorded 3 tackles in a close 30-0 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Ryan Bingham (DT San Diego Chargers): Mmmmm. San Diego. Drink it down. It always goes down smooth. Bingham, who had one tackle, and the Chargers are continuing to look like the team to beat in the NFL this year with a 21-14 win over the Raiders. And I’m Veronica Corningstone, thanks for stopping by.

Ron Burgundy or Sammy Vegas at the bars on weekends?

Correll Buckhalter (RB Philadelphia Eagles): Buckhalter and the Eagles were recently blown up by the Colts 45-21 last week and things are going nowhere but down. Correll had 26 yards receiving and 18 yards rushing in the loss.

Daniel Bullocks (S Detroit Lions): Bullocks continues to have an unbelievable season for the lowly Lions. He had 10 solo tackles and forced a fumble for the Lions on their Thanksgiving Day loss to the Dolphins.

Josh Bullocks (S New Orleans Saints): Bullocks, who had 2 tackles, and the Saints are back on track for a playoff run after destroying the Atlanta Falcons 31-13.

Ahman Green (RB Green Bay Packers): Since his return, Green has looked very impressive. In the Packer’s loss to Seattle in the snow covered field, Green scored a TD and had 44 yards.

DeJuan Groce (CB New Orleans Saints): Groce has finally seeing more playing time with the Saints since his release by the Rams before the season. In the win over the Falcons, Groce had 3 solo tackles and 1 assisted tackle.

Chris Kelsay (DE Buffalo Bills): Kelsay had 3 solo tackles in the Bills, who are now 5-6, win over the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-24.

Sam Koch (K Baltimore Ravens): Koch had 6 punts last week for an average of 43.2 yards, with 2 inside the 20, as the Ravens are now 9-2. Baltimore, San Diego, and Indianapolis are now in a 3 team race for home field advantage.

Kyle Larson (P Cincinnati Bengals): In their 30-0 win over the Ravens, Larson had 4 punts for an average of 46.5 yards with a long of 57 yards. Do not be surprised to see this former Husker in the Pro Bowl.

Carlos Polk (LB San Diego Chargers): You know, it’s a proven fact. San Diego is the greatest city in the history of man. Since the loss of Merriman to his steroid suspension, Polk has seen much more playing time recently. He had one solo tackle and 3 assisted tackles in the win over the Raiders. You stay classy San Diego, I’m Ron Burgandy?

Mike Rucker (DE Carolina Panthers): Carolina had a devastating loss last weekend to the Redskins 17-13 that could wind up sending them on the road for the playoffs. Rucker had 2 solo tackles and 1 assisted tackle in the loss.

Barrett Ruud (LB Tampa Bay Buccaneers): In Tampa Bay’s humiliating defeat to the Cowboys on Thanksgiving where QB Tony Romo had 5 TD’s, Ruud was one of the few bright spots as he had 6 solo tackles and 2 assisted tackles.

Scott Shanle (LB New Orleans Saints): Unlike his brother, Scott learned how to tackle at a young age which has allowed him to have a great season for Saints. In last week’s victory over the Falcons, Shanle had 3 solo tackles. His younger brother was unable to see the game as he can be found face first on the Field Turf in Memorial Stadium – and also, PLEASE do not wake him as there is a chance he might find the team bus to Kansas City.

Kyle Vanden Bosch (DE Tennessee Titans): Vanden Bosch continues to live up to his 20+ million dollar contract with the Titans as last week he had 2 solo and 2 assisted tackles in the great come from behind win over the New York Giants.

Fabian Washington (DB Oakland Raiders): Fabian and the Raiders are playing much better as the season has gone on. In fact, they almost had the Chargers last week before falling 21-14 in a late come from behind win. Washington played a key role for the Chargers by getting a pass interference penalty on the game winning drive. He also added 2 solo tackles.

Demorrio Williams (LB Atlanta Falcons): Williams had an unusually bad game last week with only one solo tackle in the loss to the New Orleans Saints. In a much better story, hats off to QB Michael Vick of the Falcons letting the fans know that he is thinking of them.
