Cowboys in the NFL: Week 2
LARAMIE – Currently, eight former Wyoming Cowboys are on active NFL rosters.
Each week, we’ll look at how these former Pokes are producing in the pros.
JOSH ALLEN -- Buffalo Bills
Josh Allen became the first Bills quarterback to pass for 200 yards in seven straight games since Jim Kelly did it back in 1992. Allen completed 19-of-30 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown Sunday in a 28-14 win over the New York Giants in the Meadowlands. Allen also rushed seven times for 21 yards and a score. Buffalo is 2-0 on the season.
MARK NZEOCHA – San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers outside linebacker followed up his big week-one performance with a solo tackle in a 41-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. In the opener, Mark Nzeocha blocked a punt and picked off a pass in a San Francisco win.
ANDREW WINGARD – Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars undrafted rookie safety made another tackle in his second NFL game. Andrew Wingard, who was forced into action after a rash of injuries in the season opener against Kansas City, now has a pair of tackles in two games. Jacksonville dropped to 0-2 on the season Sunday after a 13-12 loss in Houston.
TASHAUN GIPSON – Houston Texans
Texans' free safety, Tashaun Gipson, tallied five tackles in a win over Wingard's Jaguars Sunday. Gipson now has eight solo stops on the season for his new team. Houston is now 1-1 overall.

Broncos' nose tackle, Mike Purcell, was inactive for Denver's last-second 16-14 loss to the visiting Bears.
CHASE ROULLIER – Washington Redskins
Case Keenum had another solid outing for the Redskins, throwing for 221 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in a 31-21 loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys. Washington tailbacks didn't find much running room behind Chase Roullier and Co., amassing just 48 rushing yards in the loss.
