Jesse J. @theshamrap

This is downthetunnel’s week 10 installment of our former Irish great’s performances in the NFL.

Week 10’s top performers:


Shembo was all over the field this week for the Falcons, there was rarely a defensive play that was made that he wasn’t around the ball in Atlanta’s 27-17 win over Tampa Bay, earning him this week’s Defensive Top Performer.

Calvin Johnson was making his return for Detroit, leaving one to only assume Tate and Riddick’s receiving numbers would decline. Think again. Sharing this weeks Offensive Top Performer(s), the duo of former Irish stars were as dynamic as ever, both scoring touchdowns capped by this eventual game-winner by Theo:
