Best Coast Offensive Performer of the week was none other than San Diego, Calif native Reggie Bush. After becoming a Super Bowl Champion with the New Orleans Saints, he took his talents to South Beach to become an every down back for the Dolphins. Flourishing in his new role, Bush had his best game of his short tenure. A career high in rushing yards of 203 was gained on 25 carries. The dagger was delivered by a 76 yard touchdown run with five minutes left in the fourth quarter putting Miami ahead 30-13, leaving them victorious 30-23. Dolphins will move to 5-9 by winning five out of the last seven following a 0-7 start. Buffalo is going in the opposite direction by losing the last seven games after a 5-2 start.
Defensively, the Seattle Seahawks are becoming one of the most physical/fear defenses in the NFL. With quarterback Jay Cutler and runningback Matt Forte sidelined with injuries, the reserves were not able to match the intensity of the Hawks. Caleb Hanie faced constant pressure by the front seven, being forced into throwing three interceptions, one in the endzone to Earl Thomas and two were returned for touchdowns by Big Red Bryant and rookie Brandon Browner who is amongst the league leaders with six. Impact rookie corner Richard Sherman intercepted the fourth ball of the day, the first from new quarterback Josh McCown. Defensive ends Chris Clemons and Raheem Brock both had two sacks apiece and hard hitting safety Kam Chancellor is making a name for himself with his punishment of receivers and runningbacks. Kam Bam forced a big fumble in the first quarter to set up a Seahawks score. The defensive performers of the week forced five total turnovers to led Seattle to a 38-14 win and 7-7 record. Winners of three in a row and six out of the last seven have fighting odds to make the last wild card playoff spot in the NFC. Bears will go to 7-7 with their playoff hopes blowing away in the Chicago wind.
