Huskers in the NFL - Week 6

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln - A total of 19 former Huskers saw action during Week 6 of the 2009 NFL season, while one was off with a bye. Four former Huskers played in to two primetime games, as the Bears’ Zackary Bowman and Josh Bullocks dropped a close game on the road in Atlanta on Sunday night, while Correll Buckhalter and Russ Hochstein helped the Denver Broncos move to 6-0 with a win over San Diego on Monday Night Football.

After missing last weekend’s game against New England with an ankle injury, Buckhalter returned to the Broncos’ backfield to carry the ball 10 times for a team-high 46 yards. Buckhalter was also third on the time with four catches for 29 yards. Hochstein helped pave the wave for the Denver rushing attack to rack up 101 yards, while quarterback Kyle Orton completed 20 of 29 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns, while only being sacked once.

 

Following a bye week, Bowman and Bullocks traveled to Atlanta where Bowman intercepted his first pass of the season. Even though the Bears’ defense held the Falcons to just 68 yards on the ground and intercepted Matt Ryan twice, the Bears’ offense turned the ball over three times in a 14-21 loss.

 

In an overtime thriller at the Meadowlands, Chris Kelsay had a career day for the Bills as Buffalo handed the Jets their third straight loss of the season with a 16-13 win. For the first time in his career Kelsay produced double-digit tackles from his defensive end position, totaling 12 tackles. The Bills’ defense caused the Jets’ passing attack trouble all day as they intercepted six passes, including five from Mark Sanchez, and only allowed 119 yard through the air.
