UConn in NFL: Week 15

It was a week to remember for former UConn stars in the NFL.

Jordan Todman, starting for an injured Maurice Jones-Drew, ran for a career-high 109 yards and also had four catches for 44 yards in a 27-20 loss to Buffalo. While injuries paved the way for rookie tight end Ryan Griffin to lead the Houston Texans with six catches and 62 yards against Indianapolis.

On the other side of the ball, Darius Butler had a pair of interceptions to lead Indianapolis to its ninth win of the season and Robert McClain recovered a pair of fumbles in Atlanta's win over Washington.

There were four games (Jacksonville/Buffalo, Indianapolis/Houston, Washington/Atlanta and Kansas City/Oakland) featuring UConn products playing for each team.

The news wasn't all good, however. as Indianapolis RB Donald Brown was knocked out of the Houston game with a stinger and his status moving forward is unknown.
