Sunday Knights: Tim Wright surges for Patriots

Knights in the NFL ruled primetime again, as the Bengals and Patriots showcased Sunday Night Football.

Seven former Knights were on the field for Sunday Night Football on NBC this past weekend. What else went on in the professional ranks? Here's the rundown for week five:

Kenny Britt (WR, St. Louis Rams)

Any reports of Kenny Britt's retirement were premature, as the big and physical wide receiver can still make plays in the NFL. He was the Rams' second leading receiver with three receptions for 68 yards and one touchdown, which you can see here.

Marcus Cooper (CB, Kansas City Chiefs)

Cooper was originally selected by the 49ers in the 2013 NFL Draft and spent approximately three hours there before getting cut then claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs. He was made a game captain for the matchup against his former team on Sunday in an apparent trolling attempt by the Chiefs, as Alex Smith and A.J. Jenkins were also made game captains (all three played for the 49ers). Cooper finished with two tackles against his former team.

Anthony Davis (RT, San Francisco 49ers)

Bam was inactive for Sunday's game as he fell victim to the injury bug once again this season.

Khaseem Greene (LB, Chicago Bears)

Khas had quite the dubious play this week, although he wasn't the only one on his team who miffed on this play. His missed recovery on Philly Brown's fumble led to a touchdown.

It's okay though, there were several other Bears players who were unaware of what happened. In other news, Khaseem is eyeing a return to Rutgers soon:

Duron Harmon (SS, New England Patriots)

The Patriots bounced back Sunday night with a strong showing against AFC favorite Cincinnati. He found himself in the right place and right time as he recovered a fumble while subbing in for a fellow Knight who was injured.

George Johnson (DE, Detroit Lions)

Gorgeous George played in 42% of the snaps for the Lions on Sunday as his role continues to grow on the defensive line. He finished with two tackles, including one sack and a tackle for loss.

Jason McCourty (CB, Tennessee Titans)

Jason had a productive day for the Titans in a loss to the Browns on Sunday. He showed why he is a leader on defense, amassing seven total tackles and one pass defensed.

Devin McCourty (FS, New England Patriots)

The younger McCourty twin was knocked out with a rib injury in the second quarter Sunday against the Bengals. He was replaced with Duron Harmon.

Logan Ryan (CB, New England Patriots)

It was another okay day for the former Knights secondary of the Patriots. Ryan added three tackles to the pot for former Rutgers defensive backs.

Mohamed Sanu (WR, Cincinnati Bengals)

Big week for Sanu. He couldn't have made it any easier on this touchdown catch from Andy Dalton:

Also, his nephew had some big news:

Tim Wright (TE, New England Patriots)

Looks like that Logan Mankins trade is looking like the right move. Former Knight/Buccaneer now Patriot Tim Wright made good on his potential to be a factor in the Pats passing game, as he had a big night against the Bengals. He finished with five catches, 85 yards, and this touchdown catch:
