NFL Today, Week 9
Question of the Day
_ David Akers, 49ers, was 4 for 4 on field goals in San Francisco’s 19-11 win over Washington.
_ 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.
_ James Harrison, Steelers, finished with three sacks in Pittsburgh’s 23-20 loss to Baltimore.
_ 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.
