This week was a busy week in the NFL for a handful of not only former Huskers, but also one UNO Maverick who made some major plays in Monday night's game between the Bears and the Vikings.
Former Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah got 10 carries for 31 yards in the Detroit Lions' matchup with the Carolina Panthers. The Lions fell 27-24.
Former Huskers offensive linemen Richie Incognito (Bills), Matt Slauson (Chargers), Jeremiah Sirles (Vikings) and Brent Qvale (Jets) all saw action in the trenches during the week five action.
On the defensive side of the ball, Ndamukong Suh tallied a sack in the Dolphins matchup with the Titans, defensive tackle Maliek Collins grabbed a pair of tackles, and cornerback Prince Amukamara wrapped up four tackles for the Bears in Monday night's game against the Vikings.
UNO alum Zach Miller, tight end for the Chicago Bears, caught three passes for 39 yards and a touchdown, and also helped tie the game late with a two point conversion.
