#NFLMeanGreen - Week 15 Wrap

Dec. 19, 2016

DENTON - All four former Mean Green players in the National Football League were in action in Week 15, as linebackers Zach Orr (Baltimore Ravens) and Craig Robertson (New Orleans Saints), as well as fullback Jamize Olawale (Oakland Raiders) and running back Lance Dunbar (Dallas Cowboys) all contributed on the field, as all four teams came out victorious.

The Ravens improved to 8-6 winning a 27-26 thriller over the visiting Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Orr intercepted his second pass of the season (and career), as well as maintained his spot in the top 10 in the league in that category (seventh) with 124 after his two-stop performance. Watch Orr's interception here. Baltimore now travels to the Steel City to take on the rival Pittsburgh Steelers (9-5) at 3:30 p.m. on Christmas Day on NFL Network.

Olawale caught one pass for 12 yards in the Raiders' 19-16 win on the road against the San Diego Chargers. Oakland, now 11-3, host the 7-7 Indianapolis Colts on Saturday at 3:05 pm on CBS. The Raiders clinched a playoff berth with the win in San Diego, ending a 13-year playoff drought.


Dunbar had a pair of catches for 20 yards in the Cowboys' 26-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-6) on Sunday night, ending Tampa's five-game winning streak. Dunbar's 15-yard grab can be seen at the 1:00 mark here. The Cowboys (12-2) take on the Detroit Lions (9-5) in a battle of division leaders on Monday Night Football next week at 7:30 p.m. on ABC, looking for their 13th win of the season.

Robertson's Saints knocked off the Arizona Cardinals 48-41 in a shootout down in the desert, as Robertson returned to action after missing last week's game with a shoulder injury. He recorded three tackles in the win. The Saints host the Buccaneers (8-6) this coming Saturday at 3:25 p.m. on Fox.
