‘Noles in the NFL

A look at how some former Seminoles performed this past week:

Graham Gano had only one field goal attempt for the Redskins this week, but he made it count, kicking a season-long 59-yard field goal. The field goal was the longest kicked in Redskins' history and broke the record held by Steve Cox's 57-yarder in 1986. The Redskins lost the game 19-11 to San Fransisco.

Sebastian Janikowski, kicker for the Raiders, made a 48-yard field goal and three extra points in Oakland's loss to Denver. This was Janikowski's first game since October 16, when he suffered a hamstring injury. Fellow FSU alum, Raiders' linebacker Kamerion Wimbley, made six tackles on the day and notched a sack.

Mister Alexander, linebacker for the Texans, made two solo tackles in his debut. The Texans beat Cleveland 30-12.

Anquan Boldin, wide receiver for the Ravens, had seven receptions for 88 yards in Baltimore's win over Pittsburgh. On the other side of the ball, Bryant McFadden, cornerback for the Steelers, made two tackles and forced two fumbles in the loss. Lawrence Timmons, linebacker for Pittsburgh, made four tackles.

Antonio Cromartie, cornerback for the Jets, broke up two passes and forced a fumble against the Bills in the Jets' win. Cromartie also made a tackle.

Geno Hayes, linebacker for the Bucs, made a tackle in Tampa's loss to the Saints. Fellow Bucs' linebacker, Dekoda Watson, made two tackles. On the other side of the ball, Patrick Robinson, cornerback for the Saints, made four tackles.

Darnell Dockett, defensive tackle for the Cardinals, made four tackles in Arizona's win over the Rams.

Leon Washington, running back for the Seahawks, rushed for 16 yards on three carries in Seattle's loss to the Cowboys.

Ernie Sims, linebacker for the Colts, made two tackles in the loss to the Falcons.
