Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Brandon Graham

Brandon Graham

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham had a career day on Sunday. It helped that he was facing a terrible New York Jets offense. Graham made 6 tackles, 3 sacks, and 5 total hits on the quarterback in the 31-6 victory.

Here’s some video, but keep in mind that the Tweeter (Fran Duffy, whoever that is) is inaccurate with his comments. Just enjoy the moving pictures:

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker Devin Bush, Jr. made a big impact on the flow of the game on Sunday afternoon, making 11 tackles and 2 fumble recoveries. Unfortunately for him, the Steelers lost to the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 24-20. I saw a tweet saying that his 3 fumble recoveries are the most for a Steeler since 2008 . . . when former Wolverine LaMarr Woodley had 4.
