Week 13 in the NFL was fairly quiet for our former Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Just three teams with former Rutgers players won this week.

Indianapolis linebacker and defensive captain Gary Brackett returned to the field after missing three games due to a foot injury. Brackett and the Indianapolis Colts lost a tough overtime game to the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 38-35.

Brackett is our Week 13 Knight of the Week after recording 10 tackles and a pass deflection in the loss.

Eric Foster, Brackett’s teammate, made three tackles for the Colts, who are now just 6-6 on the year.

Rookie offensive lineman Anthony Davis started once again for the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers fell to the Green Bay Packers, 34-16.

The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to position themselves for a playoff appearance. This week, they defeated the Tennessee Titans, 17-6. Jaguars safety Courtney Greene made two tackles in the win. His teammates, Kevin Haslam and Tiquan Underwood, were both inactive this week for Jacksonville.

Wide receiver Kenny Britt missed his fourth straight game for Tennessee. Britt is still recovering from a hamstring injury and was listed as questionable heading into the game. Titans cornerback Jason McCourty did play but did not record any stats in the loss.

Ray Rice and the Baltimore Ravens were held down by the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. In the defensive battle, Rice had little room to run. The running back carried the ball just nine times for 32 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards. Baltimore lost 13-10.

New York Giants center Shaun O’Hara remains out with a foot injury. The Giants put together a convincing 31-7 win over the Washington Redskins.
