Week 9 for NFL Ducks

The alumni Ducks were back in NFL action in Week 9 (and one CFL note). Reuben Droughns got back on track. Joey Harrington and A.J. Feeley were slightly off track. And Kenny Wheaton could go. All. The. Way... <br><br> <i> Houston Texans linebacker Kailee Wong (52) tries to strip the ball from Denver Broncos running back Reuben Droughns in the third quarter, Sunday, Nov. 7, 2004, in Denver.

For the fourth time in five games, Denver Broncos running back Reuben Droughns rushed for a 100-yard plus game. Droughns ran for 120 yards on 29 carries as the Broncos (6-3) beat the Houston Texans (4-4) at home 31-13. Droughns also took a kickoff for 17 yards and caught a pass for six yards.

While the Detroit Lions might be one of the better road teams in the NFL, they can't seem to pull off a win at home. The Lions (4-4) lost again at Ford Field on Sunday to the struggling (3-4) Washington Redskins, 17-10. Harrington threw 52 times completing 26 for 269 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Meanwhile, Feeley took over from injured Jay Fiedler but the Miami Dolphins (1-8) lost to Arizona Cardinals (3-5) by one, 24-23. Feeley was 6-for-15, 129 yards and one interception.

The surprising San Diego Chargers (6-3) beat the New Orleans Saints (3-5) in a home, 43-17. Tight end Justin Peelle started for the Chargers, as did defensive end Igor Olshansky (three tackles).

Defensive tackle Junior Siavii and wide receiver Samie Parker were not active for the Kansas City Chiefs (3-5) but no matter, Tampa Bay Buccaneer punter Josh Bidwell had four punts for an average of 44.8 yards, with a long of 57 and one punt inside the 20. The Bucs improved their record to 3-5 in the 34-31 win.

The Seattle Seahawks (5-3) were without Maurice Morris against the San Francisco 49ers (1-7). Even though safety Keith Lewis saw playing time for the Niners, San Francisco lost 42-27.

Rashad Bauman was not active for the Cincinnati Bengals (3-5) but Cincinnati beat the Dallas Cowboys, 26-3. The 'boys dropped to 3-5 for the season.

The Minnesota Vikings and the Indianapolis Colts will play on Monday Night Football.

Finally, it might be the Canadian Football League, but Oregon legend Kenny Wheaton brought some magic to Toronto Argonauts with a CFL record 116-yard interception return. The Argonauts defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats by a 24-6 win. Weaton's play made Espn's Chris Berman's Play's of the Day.
