Knights in the NFL: Week Five

Mohamed Sanu and Devin McCourty Dominate Again

NFL: Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Mohamed Sanu wants to make sure Rutgers remains on display on Sundays. Despite the Falcons loss, Sanu scored for the second time in three weeks to lead the way for Rutgers alumni. Lets see how they did in week five.

Mohamed Sanu (Falcons)

Simply put, Sanu is a beast. Despite having Julio Jones as the No. 1 and flashly rookie Calvin Ridley burning defenders, Sanu remains solid each and every week. Matt Ryan certainly finds him reliable, just like on this touchdown. He finished the game with four catches for 77 yards and a touchdown.

Devin and Jason McCourty (Patriots)

The McCourty twins had a banner day last Thursday in a win over the Colts. Devin had a nasty fumble recovery in what was textbook defensive play. He also led the team with 11 tackles on the night.

Jason had six tackles in the game as well as he continued his solid play.

Duron Harmon (Patriots)

In the win, Harmon logged two tackles with his college teammates, the McCourty twins.

Logan Ryan (Titans)

In a loss to the Bills, Ryan logged four tackles. Despite the loss, Ryan has been a solid defender all season for Tennessee since coming over from New England.

The Rest:

Kemoko Turay (Colts) and Tyler Kroft (Bengals) played but did not record any stats. Clark Harris (Bengals) also played, but since he is a long snapper, he generally does not record any stats. Sebastian Joseph-Day (Rams) was inactive. Michael Burton and Marcus Cooper (Bears) were on their bye week. Andrew DePaola (Raiders) is on season ending IR after signing a four year, $4.27 million contract in the offseason. He is the highest paid long snapper in the NFL. Steve Longa (Lions) has been on IR for the season after tearing his ACL in the preseason. He played in 15 games for Detroit last season.
