Week 15 in the NFL: Dez lights Philly on fire

Dez went big, Perrish disappeared and Okung shoved a trainer (?)

Another week means another TD (or three) for No. 88. Here’s what former Pokes did in the League in Week 14.

Bryant Smokes Philly

Dez Bryant vowed for a better showing in the second matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.

After having little impact in a 31-10 loss, Bryant torched the Eagles Sunday for six receptions, 114 yards, and a career-high 3 TDs.

For most of the game, it seemed Philadelphia balked at the mere idea of defending him. Bryant was way too open.

Bradley Fletcher was helpless, as Bryant left him in the dust a few times on the evening. Fletcher’s being a half-step behind led to a couple of easy scores.

Despite Bryant’s monster game, the Eagles were still only a touchdown and a two point conversion away in the 4th quarter.

Enter Dan Bailey, who nailed a 49-yarder with aplomb late in the quarter to give Dallas a 38-27 lead and effectively seal the game.

Joseph Randle had just two carries for 13 yards in the win, but could see increase action next week, as DeMarco Murray suffered a hand injury in the game.

Williams big part of Seahawks’ defensive effort

A clash between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks featured a few former Oklahoma State players: Kevin Williams (Seahawks), Russell Okung (Seahawks), and Perrish Cox (49ers).

Williams had arguably his best game of the season. The defensive tackle had one sack and four tackles, two of which caused a loss of yardage. Williams did an admirable job filling the void left by Brandon Mebane this week.

Okung left in the first quarter with a chest injury, and did not return. He apparently coughed up some blood, and got into this heated exchange with his trainer.

On the other side, Perrish Cox has continued to struggle as of late.

Cox had five tackles on Sunday, but his defense has been questionable as of late. It’s a far cry from his early season form that helped him to secure a starting spot.

Since week nine, Cox has allowed 31 receptions for 443 yards on just 45 targets. It has some fans wondering what happened to him.

Lemon still performing

There’s not much that Tampa Bay fans can be happy about, but the signing of Orie Lemon is one of them.

Lemon continues to show improvement each week. This week, he forced a fumble, though the Buccaneers couldn’t recover. He also recorded four tackles, two of which were for a loss.

Here’s what the rest of the former OSU Cowboys did in the NFL this week.
