In this week’s edition for Red Raider’s in the NFL, the Cowboys dominated Miami thanks to a Red Raider, and Patrick Mahomes continues to dazzle.
Michael Crabtree, WR, Arizona
Three games and two appearances into his one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, Michael Crabtree was released. In his time with the Cardinals, he just didn’t seem to fit in with Kliff Kingsbury’s offense. Crabtree made just four catches for the Cards and only saw 31 of 132 snaps. He will still walk away with a $500,000 signing bonus and $1.75 million veteran salary guaranteed after being on the roster in week one.
Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City
In Sunday’s KC Chiefs 33-28 victory against the Ravens, Red Raider favorite Patrick Mahomes threw for 358 yards and three touchdowns, breaking the record for most 300-yard passing games this early in someone’s career. This was his 13th straight game with more than 300 yards. This new feat has him tied with Hall of Famer Kurt Warner.
Branden Jackson, DE, Seattle
Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Branden Jackson had two tackles in 21 snaps for Seattle in their 33-27 loss to New Orleans.
Jakeem Grant, WR, Miami
Jakeem Grant had four catches for 27 yards and logged one carry for four yards in Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys. He also served as Miami’s top return man. He had 26 yards on kick returns and 1 yard on a punt return for Miami.
Sam Eguavoen, LB, Miami
Sam Eguavoen was the Dolphins leader on defense with eight tackles, seven solo during Sunday’s loss to Dallas. He played every snap on defense during the game securing his starting role in Miami’s linebacker corps.

DeAndre Washington, RB, Oakland
DeAndre Washington tallied 6 carries for 22 yards in the Oakland Raiders’ 34-14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He was handed the ball on six out of nine offensive snaps he was a part of. Still he only averages 3.7 yards per carry.
Danny Amendola, WR, Detroit
Danny Amendola had 4 catches for 37 yards in Detroit’s 27-24 win in Philadelphia. Amendola saw 13 targets in the overtime time against the Cardinals in week one, but hasn’t been able to match that momentum since.
