Nelson catches fifth TD pass this season

By The Mercury

Josh Freeman was out to prove the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a mistake by giving up on him midseason.

But in his debut with the Minnesota Vikings Monday night, Freeman’s struggles continued.

Other former Kansas State players enjoyed good days in their games on Sunday.

Jordy Nelson kept his strong season going, catching another touchdown pass in the Green Bay Packers 31-13 win over the Cleveland Browns. The former Riley County standout caught five passes for 42 yards and added his fifth touchdown catch of the season. Nelson has 32 catches for 526 yards this season.

Former Wildcat Chris Harper was also with the Packers this week, but was inactive after being signed late in the week. Harper was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in April and waived during the preseason. He was with the San Francisco 49ers for the first six weeks of the season.

K-State Ring of Honor member Terence Newman had five tackles and knocked away three passes in the Cincinnati Bengals 27-24 win over the Detroit Lions. Newman has 34 tackles this season.

Daniel Thomas had a solid game on the ground for the Miami Dolphins, rushing 12 times for 60 yards in a 23-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Thomas has 39 carries this season for 131 yards and two touchdowns.

The Baltimore Ravens got two tackles from Arthur Brown in a 19-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Linebacker Reggie Walker added two tackles and a sack to his season in a 24-6 win over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars. Jeromey Clary made his regular start on the offensive line for the Chargers.

In the Philadelphia Eagles 17-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, running back Bryce Brown has two carries for 4 yards.
