Week two of the NFL season has come and gone. Now it’s time to see how former Alabama standouts did on the gridiron.
Let’s start in Oakland where a couple of Alabama great wide receivers played. Amari Cooper caught five passes for 71 yards for the Raiders. He also had this amazing hang time catch.
This is sheer athleticism. @AmariCooper9 with a NICE catch https://t.co/2gieSS6uEk

On the other sideline there was proven veteran Julio Jones for the Falcons. Jones also had five catches. He finished with 106 yards and a touchdown, and the Falcons won the game 35-28 to spoil the home opener for the Raiders.
In Miami, rookie running back Kenyan Drake ran for his first NFL touchdown against the Patriots. Drake ran for 12 yards on his two rushing attempts in the losing effort. Here is his touchdown.

Former Heisman winner Derrick Henry had his first real chance to produce on the NFL level. Henry ran for 40 yards on nine attempts. He was the lead rusher for the game until Demarco Murry busted a 67 yard run.
CJ Mosley had a big game against the Cleveland Browns. The Ravens’ linebacker had four tackles, along with two assisted tackles. He also picked off Browns quarterback Josh McCown on the one-yard line to seal the win for the Ravens.
In the Sunday night game, the Packers hosted the Minnesota Vikings, and Eddie Lacy was the leading rusher for the game with 50 yards on 12 attempts. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix also attributed with two tackles and one assist in the lost.
