Domata Peko had a monster game at defensive tackle, racking up two tackles, an assist, a sack, a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit for the Bengals in a 27-10 victory over the Jaguars.


Running back Javon Ringer made his first appearance of the season for the Titans in a 38-14 loss to the Titans. Ringer had two carries for 14 yards in his debut. For Houston, wideout Keshawn Martin reeled in two passes for 19 yards.


Brandon Fields had a busy day punting for the Dolphins, as Miami fell in overtime to the Cardinals, 24-21. Fields booted the ball five times for an average of 44 yards and also pinned Arizona inside its 20 yard line once.


Garrett Celek, Trenton Robinson and the 49ers trounced Eric Smith and the Jets, 34-0. Celek received a bit of playing time but did not record any stats, while Robinson was not active. For New York, Smith saw time at safety but did not have any stats. Celek has also been gaining the media’s attention, as web sites ranging from the San Francisco Chronicle’s 49ers blog to have begun to discover his story. The brother of veteran tight end Brent Celek, Garrett overcame some difficult obstacles to make the Niners’ final roster. He had shoulder surgery in both his sophomore and junior seasons, and put up modest numbers at Michigan State. Garrett went undrafted, signing on as a free agent with San Francisco after the draft. At the beginning of training camp, Celek struggled. But Celek worked hard and performed well in the latter half of camp, thoroughly impressing head coach Jim Harbaugh and earning a roster spot. For the full story behind Garrett’s success, check out this article:
