#ProBigRed: Huskers in the NFL - Week 9

By NU Athletic Communications

Several former Huskers made an impact in the NFL this weekend.

Sam Koch flipped the field on four occasions for the Ravens, punting four times for 189 yards. Koch averaged 47.3 yards per boot and had one punt land inside the 20 yard line. His longest punt of the day was 52 yards. Koch ranks third in the NFL in average yards per punt at 47.8 yards.

Lavonte David stood out once again for the Buccaneers. The weakside linebacker made eight tackles and got credit for half of a sack in his team's game against the Panthers. He also registered one quarterback hurry.

Maliek Collins earned a starting role at defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys in a Monday Night Football game against the Titans. Collins made five tackles on the game, including one tackle for loss.

Ndamukong Suh and Prince Amukamara also made plays this weekend for their respective team’s defensive units. Suh notched two tackles for the Rams and Amukamara recorded five tackles for the Bears in a 34-9 win at Buffalo.

Quincy Enunwa returned from injury this weekend to make three catches for 40 yards for the New York Jets in a road game against the Dolphins. Broncos fullback Andy Janovich helped to pave the way for 348 yards of total offense for the Broncos on Sunday, while also chipping in with one catch for nine yards.
