NFL Cougar Roundup, 11/28

WEEK TWELVE OF the NFL season had a definite Crimson vs. Gray theme to it with one such battle of brothers potentially sidelining a Coug for the remainder of the year. Find out the details of that and how all the NFL Cougars did in our weekly roundup.

Drew Bledsoe, QB, Buffalo: Completed 25 of 37 passes for 275 yards and one touchdown. Also threw three interceptions, but it mattered little as the Bills spanked the Seahawks, 38-9.

Erik Coleman, S, New York Jets: Tallied four solo tackles in 13-3 win over Arizona.

Devard Darling, WR, Baltimore: Did not play: Injured reserve (heel); out for remainder of season.

James Darling, LB, Arizona: Made eight tackles and assisted with another in 13-3 loss to Jets.

Jason David, CB, Indianapolis: Recorded five solo stops, defensed one pass, and returned two punts for five yards in Indy's 41-9 Thanksgiving day win against Detroit.

Mark Fields, LB, Carolina: Notched two solo stops, one pass defense, and recovered a fumble in 21-14 win against Bucs..
