Red Raiders in the Pros - Week 2

New, 2 comments

Amendola comes up big for the Patriots

Kerry Hyder - DE (Detroit Lions)

Kerry continues to be a presence on the edge for the Lions, giving them a strong pass rusher. He had another sack this week, bringing his 2-game total to 3.0, good for 2nd in the league, just a sack behind Von Miller for the league lead. Pass rusher and starter Ezekiel Ansah suffered a high ankle sprain early in the game, giving Kerry more chances to show the coaching staff what he can bring to the team.

Michael Crabtree - WR (Oakland Raiders)

Crabtree had 4 catches on 5 targets for just 31 yards. However, he had a big play again this week, scoring a touchdown on a 4th and goal from the 2. Young stud receiver Amari Cooper continues to get most of the targets from David Carr, but Crabtree’s continued success and reliability will make him hard not to go to as the season progresses.

Danny Amendola - WR (New England Patriots)

Danny had a big week with 2 early touchdowns in the matchup against Jakeem Grant and the Dolphins. He was only targeted 4 times but caught every ball thrown his way, half of them going for 6.

Other Red Raiders in Action

  • Safety Cody Davis had a tackle in the Rams 9-3 win over Seattle
  • Running back DeAndre Washington was 2nd in rushing yards for Oakland this week with 46 yards on 7 carries, including a 26 yard run. Dre is still looking for his 1st regular season score. He also had 1 reception for 6 yards.
  • There was a fan at the tailgate of the Patriots game wearing a very creepy and accurate-looking Tom Brady Mask with a bleacher report shirt on that said #FakeBrady. This was the second time the masked man had made an appearance, after he was seen in their opener in Arizona. Well Bleacher Report has uncovered the masked man.....
