NFL Today, Week 9
Question of the Day
_ Charlie Peprah and Tramon Williams, Packers. Peprah returned one of his two interceptions 40 yards for a touchdown and Williams returned an interception 43 yards for a score in Green Bay’s 45-38 win over San Diego.
_ The Rams‘ defense got two safeties off Cardinals QB John Skelton on consecutive plays in the third quarter. But Arizona won 19-13 in overtime.
_ Jerraud Powers, Colts, returned an interception 6 yards for a touchdown in Indianapolis’ 31-7 loss to Atlanta.
Arizona QB John Skelton, starting in place of Arizona’s Kevin Kolb, gave up safeties on consecutive plays in the third quarter. It was the first time a player yielded two safeties in a quarter since Aaron Rodgers did it against Minnesota on Nov. 9, 2008. The last player to have safeties on consecutive plays was Kordell Stewart of Pittsburgh against Jacksonville on Oct. 3, 1999. The safeties marked the first time in NFL history a team had scored a total of four points in a quarter.
STILL AT A LOSS
Miami’s win at Kansas City left the Colts (0-9) as the only team in the NFL without a victory. They have lost five straight home games for the first time since 2001. Indy has been outscored 75-14 in the first half and 120-24 over the past three weeks.
Arian Foster rushed for 124 yards and Ben Tate ran for 115 and both scored touchdowns to lead the Texans past Cleveland. The Texans (6-3) finished with a franchise-record 261 yards rushing. It was the first time the Browns allowed two 100-yard rushers in the same game since the Baltimore Colts did it against them in 1956. … Miami WR Brandon Marshall finished with eight catches for 106 yards and a TD. The former Bronco has 52 catches for 689 yards and seven touchdowns in eight games against Kansas City in his career. … The Dolphins sacked Kansas City’s Matt Cassel five times. The Chiefs came into the game having allowed 13 sacks all season, tied for sixth best in the league. … New Orleans gained 195 yards on the ground in a 27-16 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after rushing for only 56 yards at St. Louis a week earlier. … Rookie RB Roy Helu received his first NFL start and broke the Redskins’ record for most receptions in a game, finishing with 14 for 105 yards. The previous record for receptions was 13, reached twice by Hall of Famer Art Monk (1985 and 1990) and once by Kelvin Bryant (1986). Helu’s 14 receptions are the most by an NFL running back this season and the most by a running back since Philadelphia’s Brian Westbrook caught 14 passes against Dallas on Nov. 4, 2007. Helu’s 14 receptions are the most by any NFL rookie this season.
