Another case of the Saturday night blues was in order after the Washington Huskies were struck down by the Oregon State Beavers, but the great thing about College Football Saturdays is that NFL Sundays arrive the next day and the #ProDawgs have been thriving these past two weeks.
Last week, the Arizona Cardinals gave Urban Meyer more reasons to potentially leave the Jaguars as they beat them 31-19. Byron Murphy played a huge part in the win by recording 2 interceptions and returning one of them for a score, he also had 2 pass breakups and 4 tackles. Also busy in the Cardinal secondary was Budda Baker who had 6 tackles and Ezekiel Turner who had 1.

Taylor Rapp, Greg Gaines, and the Los Angeles Rams looked flat-out scary as they dominated the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rapp had 5 tackles and broke up a pass while Gaines had two tackles, for the Bucs’, Vita Vea had 2 tackles as did Joe Tyron-Shoyinka who also deflected a pass.

Meanwhile, Sidney Jones finally saw action for the Seahawks and finished with 7 tackles and a pass deflection while Dissly caught 2 passes for 5 yards as they beat the 49ers 28-21.
The most exciting play of the week definitely belonged to John Ross who caught a long touchdown for the Giants and piled up 77 yards on 3 catches and the score in total while Shelton recorded 4 tackles as they beat the Saints 27-21 - NOLA’s Dwayne Washington ran the ball once for 5 yards.
