Cowboys in the NFL: Week 3
LARAMIE -- Three weeks down, 14 more to go in the NFL regular-season slate.
Former Wyoming players made headlines this week, including a big night from "The Governor" on Monday Night Football.
Check out those performances from the active Cowpokes right here:
Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills, Quarterback
A week after being named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week, Josh Allen torched the Commanders for 218 yards on 20-of-32 passing. He tossed one touchdown, a 35-yard scoring strike to Gabe Davis, and rushed for another, finding the end zone from 10 yards out early in the fourth quarter of a 37-3 win at Washington.
Carl Granderson, New Orleans Saints, Defensive end
Fresh off a four-year, $52 million extension, Carl Granderson tallied four tackles, including one for loss, in an 18-17 loss to Green Bay Sunday inside Lambeau Field.
Logan Wilson, Cincinnati Bengals, Linebacker
Matt Stafford has had his fill of Logan Wilson. The Casper product picked off the Rams' signal caller twice in a 19-16 victory over Los Angeles Monday night in Cincinnati. Wilson also registered four tackles in the win. "The Governor" now has nine career interceptions in parts of four NFL seasons.
Tashaun Gipson, San Francisco 49ers, Safety
Tashaun Gipson, the longest-tenured former Cowboys in the NFL, finished with five tackles in the 49ers 30-12 victory over the visiting New York Giants last Thursday night inside Levi's Stadium. Gipson is in his 12th NFL season.
Marcus Epps, Las Vegas Raiders, Safety
Former Wyoming walk-on Marcus Epps tallied four tackles, including two solo stops, in the Raiders 23-18 loss to Pittsburgh Sunday night in Sin City.
Andrew Wingard, Jacksonville Jaguars
Andrew Wingard, a fifth-year pro in Jacksonville, capped his Sunday with one tackle in a surprising 37-17 home loss to Houston.
Mike Purcell, Denver Broncos
The Broncos, let's just say, had a rough day on the beach. Denver surrendered 726 yards of total offense and 70 points in a 50-point setback to the Dolphins Sunday afternoon in Miami. Mike Purcell finished the day with just two assisted tackles in the lopsided loss.
Chad Muma, Jacksonville Jaguars
Chad Muma, a second-year pro from the Denver area, finally got on the stat sheet Sunday in Jacksonville, tallying a pair of tackles in a 37-17 loss to the Texans.
