It was mostly a rough week for former Red Raiders in the NFL.
Here's how all of Tech's alumni in the NFL performed in Week 6:
WR Danny Amendola, St. Louis
Amendola was not available due to a shoulder injury sustained last week in a 17-14 loss against the Miami Dolphins.
RB Baron Batch, Pittsburgh
Batch got his first career NFL touchdown Thursday in a 26-23 loss against the Tennessee Titans, a one-yarder off the right guard.
The former Red Raider rushed for 22 yards total on 10 carries and caught a three-yard reception for 25 all-purpose yards.
WR Michael Crabtree, San Francisco
Crabtree, and the rest of the 49ers football team, was ineffective in a 26-3 loss against the New York Giants. The former Biletnikoff winner caught three passes for 26 total yards.
DE Kenyuta Dawson, Tennessee
Dawson did not play against Pittsburgh.
C Dylan Gandy, Detroit
Gandy played a backup center role and some special teams in the Lions' come-from-behind 26-23, overtime victory against the Eagles in Philadelphia.
He did not record any stats.
DB Joselio Hanson, Oakland
Hanson played in the secondary and on special teams for Oakland in a 23-20 loss against the Falcons in Atlanta. He picked off Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan on the opening drive of the game at the Oakland 43-yard line and ran it back to the Atlanta 41-yard line. The Raiders fumbled three plays later.
The former Red Raider also recorded two solo tackles and got a third assisted tackle.
QB Graham Harrell, Green Bay
Harrell actually got about three minutes of playing time, but he did not record any stats. Each play the quarterback was in charge of calling out was a running play to milk the clock in a 42-24 win against the Houston Texans.
S Darcel McBath, San Francisco
McBath played in the 49ers' secondary during a 26-3 loss but he did not record any stats.
RG Manny Ramirez, Denver
Ramirez did not start in the Bronco's big 35-24 win against San Diego on Monday Night Football. He did not record any stats.
RG Louis Vasquez, San Diego
Opposite Ramirez and the Broncos, Vasquez started for the Chargers in the loss. The lineman helped the Chargers out to a hot start and ultimately 232-yards of total offense.
WR Wes Welker, New England
Welker led all receivers in a 24-23 loss in Seattle. The former Tech standout caught 10 passes from Tom Brady for 138 yards, including a 46-yard touchdown pass.
