Colorado Buffaloes In The NFL: Week One Rewind

Now that the Colorado Buffaloes have two new first round draft picks and three new players (for a total of 14) in the NFL, I thought it would be nice to look back at the NFL weekend each Tuesday to see how each of our Buffaloes fared. If you guys saw any of the games and have any comments on the play of any of these guys make sure and leave a note in the comments.

Jimmy Smith - CB - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore defeated Pittsburgh, 35-7 (sad face)
Smith suffered a high ankle sprain on the opening kickoff and did not return. He is expected to miss multiple games.

Nate Solder - LT - New England Patriots 
New England defeated Miami, 38-24
Solder looked dominant in his first regular season game. Another amazing pick by the Pats.

So much for the question marks about the offensive line. Nate Solder's dominance over Cameron Wake was so complete that towards the end of the game I almost expected Solder to just get Wake in a headlock and start giving him noogies.

Jalil Brown - CB - Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City lost to Buffalo, 41-7
Brown was inactive in Saturday's loss.

Mason Crosby - K - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay defeated New Orleans, 42-34
Crosby did what Crosby does. 6-6 on extra points (no FG's attempted).

Brad Jones - LB - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay defeated New Orleans, 42-34

Justin Bannan - DE - St. Louis Rams
St. Louis lost to Philadelphia, 31-13
Bannan got a tackle!

Tyler Brayton - DE - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis lost to Houston, 34-7

Justin Drescher - LS - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans lost to Green Bay, 42-34
He snapped REALLY long.

Daniel Graham - TE - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee lost to Jacksonville, 16-14

Andre Gurode - C - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore defeated Pittsburgh, 35-7

Brian Iwuh - LB - Chicago Bears
Chicago defeated Atlanta, 30-12
Got a tackle! Take that Falcons.

Tyler Polumbus - OT - Seattle Seahawks
Seattle lost to San Francisco, 33-17

Donald Stickland - CB - New York Jets
New York defeated Dallas, 27-24

Lawrence Vickers - FB - Houston Texans
