Wolverines in the NFL
WOLVERINES IN THE NFL: WEEK 11
New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady passed for 277 yards and one touchdown, helping his Patriots clinch their second 10-0 start in the last decade. Brady has thrown at least one touchdown pass in each game this season.
Carolina Panthers' receiver Devin Funchess tallied four catches for 64 yards, including a five-yard touchdown reception early in the third quarter of a 44-16 victory over the Washington Redskins. His Panthers are 10-0, one of two undefeated teams remaining in the NFL.
Defensive back Leon Hall started the game off right for his Cincinnati Bengals, intercepting a pass on the first drive of a close loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The veteran defensive back now has 25 picks on his career.
Oakland Raiders' safety Charles Woodson continued his late-career surge, tallying six solo tackles in a close loss at Detroit. The 39-year-old has posted five interceptions and eight passes defended through 10 games this season.
Kansas City Chiefs wideout Jason Avant had two catches for 26 yards in his team's dominant 33-3 win at San Diego.
New York Jets linebacker David Harris notched eight tackles for the second straight week in a 24-17 loss on the road at Houston.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson matched a season high with seven carries for a season-best 27 yards as his team squeaked by Taylor Lewan's Tennessee Titans, 19-13, last Thursday.
Offensive tackle Patrick Omameh made his fourth straight start for the Chicago Bears, who are 2-2 over that stretch, while OT Michael Schofield has started the past seven games for the Denver Broncos, who are 5-2 with him in the lineup.
