Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, San Diego Chargers (2010-2013)
Jeremiah Attaochu had a strong game for the San Diego Chargers in their loss to the Green Bay Packers 27-20. Attaochu collected three tackles, with two of those being sacks. I couldn't find a video, but I did find this picture of one of them: Link. Aaron Rodgers doesn't look too thrilled right there.
T.J. Barnes, DT, New York Jets (2008-2012)
TJ Barnes played in relief at nose tackle for the New York Jets in their 34-20 victory over the Washington Redskins. Barnes had a tackle.
Mario Butler, CB, Buffalo Bills (2007-2009)
Mario Butler played in relief at corner for the Buffalo Bills in their 34-21 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Butler did not record any stats.
Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit Lions (2004-2006)
After having a slow start to the season, Calvin Johnson finally blew up in this game. In the 37-34 overtime victory for the Lions over the Chicago Bears, Johnson caught six passes for 166 yards (27.67 yards per reception) and caught the go-ahead touchdown before the Bears tied it back up to go into overtime.
Michael Johnson, DE, Cincinnati Bengals (2005-2008)
Michael Johnson started at defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals in their 34-21 victory over the Buffalo Bills. Johnson recorded four tackles.
Shaquille Mason, OG, New England Patriots (2011-2014)
Shaq Mason got another start this week as the New England Patriots beat the Indianapolis Colts 34-27. I watched part of this game, and there was one thing that absolutely baffled me. It was a fourth down play and the Patriots had Mason lined up at fullback. You would think, yeah, let's hand it off to 250-pound LaGarrette Blount to run behind Mason for the first down. Nope (just Chuck Testa). Instead, the Patriots ran a quarterback sneak. Predictably, it was stuffed.
Derrick Morgan, OLB, Tennessee Titans (2007-2009)
Derrick Morgan and the Tennessee Titans took on and lost to what seems to be a rejuvenated Miami Dolphins team 38-10. Morgan had a solid game with four tackles.
Daryl Smith, LB, Baltimore Ravens (2000-2003)
Daryl Smith had another good game as the Baltimore Ravens took on the San Francisco 49ers. In the 25-20 loss, Smith had nine tackles and a sack.
Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver Broncos (2006-2008)
Demaryius Thomas had yet another fantastic game as the Denver Broncos beat the Cleveland Browns 26-23. Thomas finished the game with 10 catches for 111 yards.
Vance Walker, DE, Denver Broncos (2005-2008)
In the Broncos' victory, Vance Walker started at defensive end and had five tackles.
