Coons gives Cleveland win over Baltimore
Former Husky and current Cleveland Browns kicker Travis Coons kicked a game winning 32-yard field goal in overtime Sunday to give his team a 33-30 win over the Baltimore Ravens. It was one of four field goals for Coons in the win, including a 43-yarder. He also converted an extra point Sunday. Coons remained perfect on the season, having made all 11 of his attempted field goals and every extra point.
Danny Shelton contributed a pair of tackles for the Browns defense, but also added a couple of ill-timed penalties as he continues to level off following an outstanding beginning to his NFL career this season.
Falcons knock off Redskins, remain unblemished
The Atlanta Falcons moved to a perfect 5-0 on the season Sunday with a 25-19 victory over the Washington Redskins, in a game that featured two former standout secondary players for the Huskies. Atlanta corner Desmond Trufant had a pair of tackles and a pass deflection in the win, while safety Dashon Goldon led the 'Skins in tackles with 10.
Peters shines as Chiefs fall
Marcus Peters continued his solid rookie season for the Kansas City Chiefs. Peters led the Chiefs defense with eight tackles and deflected a pass in the Chiefs 18-17 loss to the Chicago Bears. The loss dropped Kansas City, a preseason dark horse, to 1-4 on the season. Perhaps even worse news for the Chiefs Sunday was the loss of running back Jamaal Charles to a torn ACL which will sideline him for the remainder of the season.
Kearse hauls in first touchdown of 2015
Former Husky and current Seattle Seahawk receiver Jermaine Kearse caught his first touchdown of the reception Sunday, one of two total catches good for 38 yards. The Seahawks blew a 17 point lead to the Cincinnati Bengals, and eventually fell 27-24 in overtime. Seattle now sits at 2-3 on the season, following back-to-back appearances in the Super Bowl.
