Alex Brown, Chicago Bears Brown recorded three tackles and one sack in Chicago's 24-14 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Brown's sack of Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper in the third quarter helped the Bears' defense keep Minnesota from scoring after a field goal attempt was blocked on fourth down. The Bears then drove down the field for a touchdown and a 10 point lead that they would not relinquish.

Fred Taylor, Jacksonville Jaguars Taylor had yet another solid rushing performance, gaining 76 yards on 27 carries, and gained an additional 34 yards on five catches in Jacksonville's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars coaching staff has wanted to get Taylor close to 30 carries a game, and Fred showed he was up to the task.
The Red Zone
Darrell Jackson, Seattle Seahawks As Jackson was the only former Gator to score any points this weekend, he gets this award by default. Jackson caught a two-yard pass in the end zone from Matt Hasselbeck, to put Seattle up 14-3 over the Cowboys. Jackson set up his touchdown catch with a 35-yard reception on the previous play.
I Wish I Were Back In Hogtown….
Terry Jackson, San Francisco 49ers Jackson had three carries for -8 yards in the 49ers loss to the Rams on Sunday. Jackson doesn't see much playing time as it is, but gaining negative yardage when you do get the ball certainly isn't going to make the coaches want to play him more. It's hard to say if Jackson just doesn't have it anymore, or if it's the fact that the 49ers are completely awful all around.
