Florida Gators in the NFL – Week 9

The Gators had a very productive Week 9 in the NFL. Game-winning touchdowns, second-half comebacks, and the first NFL start for one former Florida player.

Maurice Hurt started his first NFL game for the Washington Redskins in a 19-11 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

The Tale of Two Halves for the Broncos and Tim Tebow continued as the Broncos needed a second-half comeback to defeat the Oakland Raiders 38-24.  Backed by an impressive running game in the second half, Denver outscored Oakland 31-7 to mount the comeback win. Tebow finished with 124 passing yards, two touchdowns and added 117 yards rushing.

The Bengals jumped on the backs of two former Gators, Andre Caldwell and Carlos Dunlap.  Early in the fourth quarter, Caldwell caught his fifth pass of the game for a touchdown.  This score ended up as the game-winner, as Tennessee could not mount a comeback to overtake the Bengals.  Like last year, Carlos Dunlap is coming on strong as the season progresses, with three sacks in the last two games.  The Bengals defense stepped up the second half, allowing no touchdowns behind Dunlap’s two sacks.

Jabar Gaffney, David Nelson and Aaron Hernandez all recorded one touchdown in their team’s losses, and Louis Murphy accumulated his first stats of the year as he caught one pass for 23 yards for the Raiders.

Joe Haden continued to be the bright spot on defense for the Cleveland Browns as he recorded seven solo tackles in a 30-12 loss to the Houston Texans.

Major Wright also played well for the Chicago Bears in a win on Monday Night Football, recording his first career interception.

Gator Country thanks Mike Gibbs (u8evol19i) for his contributions compiling the stats of former Gators in the NFL.
