Former Longhorns made an impact in Week 10 matchups


A slew of former Longhorns made an impact in Week 10 matchups.

New England defensive tackle Malcom Brown compiled seven tackles and one sack this week against the New York Giants. The 2014 first team All-Big 12 selection recorded a key sack on third-and-5, forcing the Giants to kick a field goal with two minutes left in the game.

Former Texas cornerback Quandre Diggs was key in breaking the Lions’ 24-game losing streak at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Of nine passes in his direction, Diggs only allowed defenders to catch two. He recorded two tackles and one pass deflection.

Sunday night’s matchup between the Cardinals and Seahawks featured a myriad of Longhorns. Outside linebacker Alex Okafor returned to the Cardinals after a Week 5 calf injury, recording one tackle, while Cardinals defensive end Cory Redding left the game early with an ankle injury in the second quarter. Seahawks safety Earl Thomas posted five tackles, one pass deflection and one interception in a loss.
