Several former Oklahoma State Cowboys saw action in Week 5 of the NFL season, with some fairly mixed results.
Brandon Weeden – QB – Dallas Cowboys
Weeden was largely ineffective in moving the Cowboys’ offense during a 30-6 home loss to the undefeated New England Patriots, going 26/39 for just 188 yards and an interception. Several sources have now stated that third-string quarterback Matt Cassel will replace Weeden in the starting lineup when the Cowboys face the Giants after a bye week.
Joseph Randle – RB – Dallas Cowboys
Randle rushed for 60 yards on 15 carries while also catching four passes for 16 yards during the loss. He is averaging 3.9 yards per carry on the season.
Dan Bailey – K – Dallas Cowboys
Bailey had all six of the Cowboys’ points during the loss, including a 51-yard field goal. He is yet to miss a field goal or extra point this season.
Tyler Patmon – CB – Dallas Cowboys
Patmon, who had seen action in every Cowboys game so far this season, saw his playing time cut in half the previous week against New Orleans. Against New England, he was benched entirely, as Corey White basically took over Patmon’s spot in the secondary.
Antonio Smith – DE – Denver Broncos
The veteran Smith recorded one pass deflection and one quarterback hit in the Broncos’ 16-10 victory on the road over the Oakland Raiders.
Brandon Pettigrew – TE – Detroit Lions
Pettigrew had his best performance of the season thus far, catching three passes for 29 yards during the Lions’ 42-17 thrashing to Arizona. The game was Pettigrew’s second of the season, as he’s been hampered by a hamstring injury.
Kevin Williams – DL – New Orleans Saints
Williams tallied one tackle in a 17-39 losing effort to Philadelphia.
Russell Okung – OT – Seattle Seahawks
Okung had his typical solid game during the Seahawks’ 24-27 overtime road loss to Cincinnati, including a key block during this long touchdown run from Thomas Rawls.
Perrish Cox – CB – Tennessee Titans
Cox totaled two solo tackles in a 14-13 home loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Justin Gilbert – CB – Cleveland Browns
Gilbert recorded two tackles while returning one kickoff return for 15 yards during the Browns’ 33-30 overtime road win over Baltimore.
