Week 15 for NFL Ducks

A former Duck quarterback was listed on the participation list in a game that stopped a perfect season. In that same game a former Duck defensive lineman recorded two tackles and two assists. A third former Duck tight end was also on the participation list. Meanwhile a lowly NFL squad picked up a win as their star running back (and former Duck) continued to add to his total yardage, all this in Week 15 of the NFL.

The San Diego Chargers (9-5) stopped the Indianapolis Colts (13-1) from having a perfect season on Sunday night with a 26-17 win.

Running back Maurice Morris had a carry for three yards and caught a pass for 14 yards at the Seattle Seahawks (12-2) improved their hold on the best record in the NFC by beating the Tennessee Titans (4-10) by a score of 28-24. Titans' linebacker Peter Sirmon had four tackles and two assists in the game.

The Cincinnati Bengals (11-3) made easy work of the woeful Detroit Lions (4-10) with a 41-17 win. Bengals' cornerback Rashad Bauman had a tackle.

Tight end George Wrighster played for the Jacksonville Jaguars (10-4) as they beat the San Francisco 49ers (2-12) 10-9. Offensive lineman Adam Snyder started for San Francisco and his teammate safety Keith Lewis had five tackles but wide receiver Marcus Maxwell was on the Not Active list.

On Saturday, wide receiver Samie Parker had six catches for 87 yards but his Kansas City Chiefs (8-6) lost to the New York Giants (10-4), 27-17. Chiefs' defensive tackle Junior Siavii had a tackle.

In another Saturday game, the New England Patriots (9-5) appear to be making a late-season run as they shut out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (9-5), 28-0. Tampa Bay punter Josh Bidwell had seven punts averaging 43.0 yards with a long of 49 and two inside the 20. Buccaneer linebacker Wesly Mallard was on the participation list for the game.
