#NFLHogsThere were numerous former Razorbacks on teams in action during yesterday’s snowy NFL Sunday. Below is a recap plus another @RazorbackFB alum in action tonight.
Knile Davis scored the first rushing touchdown of his professional career in Kansas City’s 45-10 dismantling of the Redskins in Washington. Davis finished the game with 30 yards on 11 carries, including his 17-yard touchdown run, and caught one 17-yard pass in addition to contributing on special teams with one tackle and the final block inside the 10-yard line on Quintin Demps’ 95-yard kickoff return touchdown. The Chiefs are 10-3 and tied for the second-best record in the AFC.
Nate Garner and the Miami offensive line paved the way for the Dolphins’ 34-28 victory at Pittsburgh. Miami averaged 7.5 yards per rush and gained 360 yards of total offense against the Steelers, improving to 6-6 and remaining one-half of a game behind a wild card spot in the AFC playoffs.
Chris Houston and Jason Peters played the most entertaining game of the day as a blizzard engulfed Philadelphia and forced the game to be played with up to eight inches of snow on the field. Houston grabbed one interception, the first thrown by Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles this season, and made three tackles. Peters blocked for the Philadelphia offense that gained 299 yards rushing and 478 yards of total offense in a 34-20 win to stay on top of the NFC East.
Ronnie Wingo Jr., had the first rush and reception of his professional career for the Bills at Tampa Bay. Wingo rushed once for four yards and also caught a two-yard reception.
Brett Goode and the Packers earned an exciting 22-21 home win against Atlanta. Green Bay is now 6-6-1 and trails division leader Detroit by one-half of a game.
Jake Bequette, Ryan Mallett and the Patriots improved to 10-3, tied for the second-best record in the AFC, with a 27-26 win over Cleveland. New England is one win or one Miami loss from clinching the AFC East title.
George Wilson recorded six tackles, including five solo stops, for Tennessee at Denver.
Peyton Hillis rushed four times for 11 yards and one touchdown for the New York Giants at San Diego.
