On the other sideline, Brandon Graham had 4 tackles and 2 tackles for loss.

Honorable mention: Charles Woodson of the Oakland Raiders had 9 tackles, 1 interception, and 1 pass breakup in a 19-14 loss to the New York Jets. Arizona Cardinal linebacker Larry Foote had 8 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and 2 pass breakups in an 18-17 win over the San Diego Chargers on Monday night. New York Giants free safety Stevie Brown had 9 tackles in a 35-14 loss to the Detroit Lions. Tom Brady was 29/56 for 249 yards and 1 touchdown in a 33-20 Patriots loss to the Miami Dolphins.

  1. I would have picked Foote. It seems that Henne fell off a cliff in the second half after a great start and his team lost a big lead. The consensus from their fans/media was that he was his usual erratic self. Meanwhile Foote was dynamic and played a huge role in a comeback win.
