Huskers in the NFL - Week 7

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln - A total of 14 former Huskers saw action during Week 7 of the 2009 NFL season, while seven players were off with a bye.

 

Chris Kelsay had a stellar Sunday for Buffalo, as the Bills downed the Carolina Panthers, 20-9. Kelsay led a defensive unit that pressured Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme all day, as Delhomme was sacked twice and threw three interceptions. Individually, Kelsay had four solo stops, a nine-yard sack and one quarterback hurry. The Bills’ defense now leads the league in interceptions with 13, after picking off nine passes over the past two games.

 

After giving up 24 points in the first half to the Miami Dolphins, Scott Shanle and the Saints’ defense held the Dolphins to just 10 points in the second half. On the other side of the ball, Carl Nicks and the Saints’ offense exploded for 36 second-half points, including 22 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to win, 46-34. Shanle had six solo stops and recovered a Davone Bess fumble with 1:38 left in the second half that resulted in a Saints’ touchdown with five second left in the half. Nicks paved the way for the Saints’ rushing attack to rush for 138 yards and three touchdowns. Quarterback Drew Brees also threw for 298 yards and one score.

 

Across the pond in London, former Blackshirt Barrett Ruud totaled six tackles for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as they took on the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium. Three interceptions by the Tampa Bay offense doomed the Bucs, as they fell 35-7. The paid attendance of 84,254 was the third-largest crowd for an NFL game at the stadium.
