Sunday Knights: And He Can Pass Edition

Mohamed Sanu throws a pass, Greg Schiano gets his second straight win, and more!

Andy Lyons

SCHIANO WATCH: The Bucs are on fire! After a staggering two straight wins, could there be talks of a contract extension in Tampa? Haha, yea, I laughed at that notion too. The former coach still needs a couple more wins to cool his hot seat. At the very least, maybe it'll net a couple more thousand dollars on his house in Piscataway.

Marcus Cooper (CB, Kansas City Chiefs)

The rising rookie hit a bit of a rough patch on Sunday night, getting burned repeatedly by Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas. He failed to rein him in, as Thomas finished as Denver's leading receiver with five catches for 121 yards.

Khaseem Greene (LB, Chicago Bears)

Greene is slowly progressing as a linebacker for the Bears, finishing with four total tackles against the Ravens while playing a limited amount of snaps due to increased nickel coverage. He continues to improve each week and should add valuable depth to Chicago's linebacker corps going forward.

Duron Harmon (S, New England Patriots)

Mark Daniels of the now-infamous Boston Herald has this in depth profile of Duron Harmon, who played significant time during the Patriots loss to the Cardinals on Monday night. Harmon was part of a unit that struggled at times to defend Cam Newton and Carolina's passing game. He finished with three tackles on the night.

Brian Leonard (RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

The former fullback was overtaken by Bobby Rainey against the Falcons, mustering only four carries for 16 yards. Leonard was also second on the team in receptions this week, catching four passes for 21 yards.

Jason McCourty (CB, Tennessee Titans)

It's the other McCourty twin's turn for the Pro Player Insiders profile of the charitable football player.

Devin McCourty (FS, New England Patriots)

After a hard fought game, Monday night belonged to Cam Newton and the Panthers, and Devin McCourty had a significant effect on the outcome with a late holding call against Carolina TE Greg Olsen. The call by the refs led to an eventual go-ahead score for Cam Newton.

Ray Rice (RB, Baltimore Ravens)

Ray Rice was back to his usual self, rushing for 131 yards on 25 carries, with a long of 47 and a touchdown to boot. After a disappointing year, you have to hope that Rice can finish with a strong season.

Logan Ryan (CB, New England Patriots)

Ryan was a major player for a defense that was beat several times during the Monday night game against Carolina, but it appears his stock is impoving relative to the rest of the DBs. Before Monday night's game against the Panthers, Rant Sports called for Ryan to replace the injured Alfonzo Dennard, rather than Kyle Arrington.

Mohamed Sanu (WR, Cincinnati Bengals)

SANU PASS ATTEMPT SIGHTING: Mohamed threw a very nice spiral that eventually led to his own touchdown catch that has to be seen:



Can't he just come back and do everything for RU?

Tiquan Underwood (WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Could Mike Williams job be in jeopardy? According to this article from Rant Sports, Tiquan Underwood could give the Buccaneers reason to trade him.

Tim Wright (TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

FanSided blog The Pewter Plank examines whether the Bucs have found their tight end of the future in Tim Wright, who is making waves across the NFL with his strong work ethic and increasing production.
