Former Orange NFL stats from Week 17:
Tony Fiammetta (Chicago Bears) - Recorded no stats in loss @ Green Bay.
Ryan Nassib (New York Giants) - Inactive in win vs. Washington.
Justin Pugh (New York Giants) - Started & recorded no stats in win vs. Washington.
Steve Gregory (New England Patriots) - Started & recorded 5 tackles (4 solo) & had 1 sack on 1 QB-hit in win vs. Buffalo.
Arthur Jones (Baltimore Ravens) - Did not play in loss @ Cincinnati. (Arthur underwent the NFL concussion protocol after suffering a concussion last week vs. New England, even though he did not practice he was listed as Active this week.)
Chandler Jones (New England Patriots) - Started & recorded 4 tackles (2 solo, 1 for loss) in win vs. Buffalo. (Chandler was flagged 6 yards for illegal use of the hands towards the end of the 3rd Q negating a sack on 3rd down giving Buffalo a 1st down who would score a TD 2 plays later.)
Jameel McClain (Baltimore Ravens) - Started & recorded 8 tackles (4 solo) & forced 1 fumble in loss @ Cincinnati.
Shamarko Thomas (Pittsburgh Steelers) - Recorded no stats in win vs. Cleveland.
INJURED RESERVE/PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO PERFORM/SUSPENDED:
Dwight Freeney (San Diego Chargers) - IR (quadriceps)
Alec Lemon (Houston Texans) - IR (hamstring)
Tanard Jackson (Washington Redskins) - Suspended (substance abuse policy)
Mike Williams (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) - IR (hamstring)
Tom Coughlin (New York Giants) - The Giants & Coughlin wrapped up their season with a 20-6 victory over the Washington Redskins to improve to 7-9 (4-4 at home) on the year. The Giants ended up winning 7/10 games after a disappointing 0-6 start. The question now for Coughlin is will he throw in the towel at age 67 or return for another season.(Coughlin successfully used a coaches challenge towards the end of the 3rd Quarter after Washington was given a first down, the play was reversed as the ball was re-spotted short of the 1st down & the Redskins were forced to punt.)
Doug Marrone (Buffalo Bills) - The Bills & Marrone ended the season with a 34-20 loss in the rain at New England. Buffalo came in on a 2-game win streak & Marrone even returned to his full-hat but finish the season at 6-10 (2-6 on the road). The Bill have now lost 13 straight at New England (12 straight at Gillette Stadium) & if Marrone wants to extend his coaching career in Buffalo that is going to have to change. He said "It would be much different if we were ending on a three-game winning streak... To say that you're close or anything like that, until you win we don't have a leg to stand on." (Marrone did not use coaches challenge.)
