WOLVERINES IN THE NFL: WEEK FOUR
Denver offensive tackle Michael Schofield took his first snap in a NFL regular-season game Sunday vs. the Minnesota Vikings. The 6-foot-6, 301-pound right tackle, who moved into the starting lineup due to an injury to Ty Sambrailo, helped the Broncos to a 150-yard rushing day in their 23-20 win over the Vikings.
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Brandon Graham recorded seven tackles (six solo) and forced a fumble in a 23-20 loss at Washington. His seven tackles marked the most tackles in a single game for him this year.
Oakland Raiders’ cornerback Charles Woodson notched five solo tackles and picked off quarterback Jake Cutler in a 22-20 loss at Chicago. Woodson has now recorded an interception in back-to-back games. He has 22 tackles on the year.
New York Jets linebacker David Harris had three solo tackles in the New York's 27-14 win over the Miami Dolphins in London. Harris and the Jets' defense gave up just 226 total yards. They rank third in the NFL this season, giving up just 280.2 yards per game.
Kansas City wide receiver Jason Avant recorded his best game of the season in a Sunday loss to Cincinnati. He hauled in four receptions, racking up 43 yards with a long of 13 yards. This was Avant's first game of the season with double-digit receiving yards. In the same contest, Cincinnati cornerback Leon Hall recorded three solo tackles to help lead the Bengals to their fourth consecutive win. Hall has recorded at least three tackles in every game so far this season.
