Sunday Knights: Former Defensive Backs Highlight Primetime

There were four players showcased on Monday Night Football between the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots.

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

With Cincinnati and St. Louis on bye, it was a bit of a slow week for Knights in the NFL. And with the Patriots vomiting all over themselves on Monday Night Football, week four in the NFL was one to forget for Rutgers. Here's the other highlights from the other games on Sunday:

Marcus Cooper (CB, Kansas City Chiefs)

It was a quiet night on Monday for Marcus Cooper, at least on the stat line. He finished with one tackle and one pass defensed. However, he was on the right side of the most important stat of all: the win column. Cooper got the better of his former secondary teammates, as the Chiefs embarrassed the Patriots in front of a national audience.

Anthony Davis (RT, San Francisco 49ers)

Good news then bad news for Bam - he was listed as questionable before Sunday's game against the Eagles but was active, getting the start after being injured the first three games. Davis didn't last long, however, as he exited the game after the final play of the first quarter. Colin Kaepernick was sacked and landed on AD's legs, but it should be noted that Davis walked off the field on his power. No update yet from the Niners.

Jonathan Freeny (LB, Miami Dolphins)

Freeny got the chance to play professional football outside of the United States, as the Dolphins took on the Raiders in the NFL International Series. He finished with two total tackles in Miami's 38-14 win.

Khaseem Greene (LB, Chicago Bears)

After being activated for the first time last week, Khaseem Greene continues to take meaningful snaps for the Bears. He logged two tackles in a 38-17 loss to the rival Packers.

Duron Harmon (SS, New England Patriots)

Harmon collected two tackles in the loss to the Chiefs.

Jason McCourty (CB, Tennessee Titans)

Andrew Luck has been on a tear for the Indianapolis Colts this season, and that meant a heavy workload for Jason McCourty this past Sunday. He finished with five total tackles and a pass defensed.

Devin McCourty (FS, New England Patriots)

The elder twin did his best to stem the Kansas City passing attack Monday, as Alex Smith turned in a career performance passing for three touchdowns. McCourty finished with five tackles and one pass defensed.

Logan Ryan (CB, New England Patriots)

The young Patriots secondary had a busy night yesterday. While the offense is arguably the core problem of the Patriots, the defense isn't a vintage Belichick unit either. Ryan was able to muster two tackles in the losing effort against the Chiefs.

Jeremy Zuttah (C, Baltimore Ravens)

More praise for the Baltimore offensive line, with this article highlighting the physicality of Jeremy Zuttah, among other linemen. With starting RB Ray Rice and backup Bernard Pierce out, the offensive line is doing a great job of opening up holes for Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Even with the top two rushers out, Baltimore averaged 4.2 yards per rush against a formidable Carolina defense.
