  • Weeden had an interesting outing against the Atlanta Falcons in a 39-28 loss at home that has many divided over how to feel about it.

    The backup quarterback made the start in place of the injured Tony Romo, and began the game 9-9 for 105 yards, which actually broke a franchise record for consecutive passes made when including his 7-7 end to last week’s game and his final game of last season. Weeden celebrated by throwing a dumb interception right after, but hey. By the time the first half had ended, Weeden had led the Cowboys on four scoring drives for a 28-17 halftime lead.

    The Cowboys’ offense fell on their face in the second half, and the defense completely disappeared, resulting in a 39-28 loss. Weird game overall, but Weeden finished with just four incompletions, going 22-26 for 232 yards and that interception, without Dez Bryant on the field. Plenty of Dallas fans are pinning the blame on the loss on Weeden, because he apparently plays defense. Yes, he rarely threw downfield, but it seemed to be working in the first half. Look for the team to open it up more on the road in New Orleans on Sunday night.

    Joseph Randle – RB – Dallas Cowboys

    Randle had a career-day on Sunday, getting out to a fast start, as he racked up three rushing touchdowns in the first half alone.

    Unfortunately, The Falcons focused on stopping the running game in the second half, and he rushed for negative yardage, bringing his final rushing stats to 14 carries for 87 yards, good for a solid 6.2 yards per carry average. He also had two receptions off two targets for 18 yards. Not a bad day overall for Randle, but the second half was a little baffling.

    Dan Bailey – K – Dallas Cowboys

    Bailey didn’t attempt a single field goal, but hit all four of his extra points in the loss. He also avoided any unsportsmanlike penalties.

    Dez Bryant – WR – Dallas Cowboys

    Tyler Patmon – CB – Dallas Cowboys

    Patmon finished with one solo tackle and a pass deflected, one of four Cowboys to do so. The Dallas secondary had no answer for Julio Jones however, but they won’t be the last team he burns.

    Antonio Smith – DE – Denver Broncos

    The veteran Smith had a pretty decent game in a 24-12 road win over the Detroit Lions, finishing with one quarterback hit and one pass deflection.

    Brandon Pettigrew – TE – Detroit Lions

    Pettigrew remains out of the lineup with a hamstring injury.

    Lane Taylor – LG – Green Bay Packers

    Taylor was available as a backup in the Packers 38-28 home win over Kansas City, but was not needed. He is yet to play this season after seeing action in every game last season.

    Kevin Williams – DL – New Orleans Saints

    Williams finished with one tackle in the Saints’ loss on the road to Carolina.

    Russell Okung – OT – Seattle Seahawks

    Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch went down with an injury in the first half, but backup Thomas Rawls came out and ran the ball 16 times for 104 yards behind Okung and the Seahawks offensive line in a 26-0 win at home over the Chicago Bears.

    Perrish Cox – CB – Tennessee Titans

    Cox had a great game in a 35-33 losing effort to the Indianapolis Colts, finishing with four tackles, one pass deflected, and one interception, that he nearly took to the house:

    Kendall Hunter – RB – San Francisco 49ers

    Hunter remains on the 49ers injured reserve list after reaching an injury settlement with the team earlier in the month. There are several that think he could be back in Week 8 after sitting out the required six weeks after clearing waivers, however.

    Justin Gilbert – CB – Cleveland Browns

    Gilbert made his first appearance this season in the Browns’ 27-20 home loss to the Oakland Raiders. Gilbert, who has a had a pretty tumultuous go of it lately, was listed as the third-string cornerback, making a few appearances on special teams. Look for his roll to increase as he works his was back from a hamstring injury.
