Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Willie Henry had yet to play an NFL game until two weeks ago, and this past Sunday, he earned his first start. He recorded 3 tackles and 0.5 sacks, but the Ravens lost to the Chicago Bears, 27-24.

HONORABLE MENTION

  • New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was 20/38 for 257 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception in a 24-17 win over the New York Jets.
  • Kansas City Chiefs WR Jehu Chesson did not catch a pass, but after a safety, the Chiefs took a free kick. The Steelers let it bounce on the ground, and Chesson recovered it for . . . an onside free kick recovery. The Chiefs lost, 19-13.
  • Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess caught 3 passes for 36 yards in a 28-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
  • Eagles DE Brandon Graham made 3 tackles and 0.5 sacks in the 28-23 win over the Panthers.
  • Cleveland Browns S Jabrill Peppers made 5 tackles and 6 punt returns for 43 yards in a 33-17 loss to the Houston Texans.
  • Green Bay Packers LB Jake Ryan made 8 tackles in a 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
  • Baltimore Ravens DT Chris Wormley made 2 tackles in the 27-24 loss to the Bears. So for the Ravens, two of their starting defensive linemen were former Wolverines.

Green Bay Packers linebacker Jake Ryan made 12 tackles in a 31-26 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He now has 59 tackles and 3 pass breakups on the season.

HONORABLE MENTION

  • Seattle Seahawks DE Frank Clark made 3 tackles and 1 sack in a 31-25 win over the Buffalo Bills
  • Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess caught 1 pass for 28 yards in a 13-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams
  • New York Jets LB David Harris made 5 tackles in a 27-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins

It’s a pretty boring week for former Wolverines when a guy with 1 catch for 28 yards gets honorably mentioned, but that’s how it goes sometimes.

Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Jake Ryan

Jake Ryan (#47)

Green Bay Packers linebacker Jake Ryan made 6 solo tackles and 3 assists (9 total) in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions. As painful – though expected – as it was for Lions fans to watch, it was a nice job by Ryan, who has carved out a starting role for the Packers.

  • Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham had 1 sack in a 34-3 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He now has 3 sacks on the season.
  • New York Giants CB Leon Hall, in his first year with the team after coming over from the Bengals, had 4 tackles and 1 pass breakup in a 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins
