Stanford has 20 former players in action during NFL's Week 2


Seventeen former Stanford football players saw action in games around the NFL Sunday with three more -- Andrew Luck, Griff Whalen and Zach Ertz -- playing in a Monday night showdown.

Ertz's Eagles outlasted Luck and Whalen's Colts, 30-27, thanks to 86 yards receiving from the second-year tight end and a last-second field goal during the final game of Week 2. Luck threw for 172 yards on 20-of-34 passing and Whalen shined in the return game.

Chris Owusu, who caught his first career touchdown in Week 1, highlighted Sunday's slate with a 45-yard kickoff return. Owusu's effort looked like it would set up a Tampa Bay scoring drive, before a 24-yard field goal attempt was blocked.

Michael Thomas totaled four tackles for Miami and rookie Trent Murphy registered a quarterback hurry in Washington's 41-10 win over Toby Gerhart's Jaguars.
