Utes In The Pros: Week Seven Recap

SALT LAKE CITY – It was another great week for former Utah football players in the NFL as they willed their teams to key victories in week seven of the regular season.

Former Utah defensive back standouts Eric Weddle and Marcus Williams faced off this past week for the New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens with Williams and the Saints coming away with a huge road win. Williams racked up four tackles while Weddle finished second on his team with seven tackles.

 Alex Smith propelled the Redskins to a key victory over Dallas with 178 yards through the air, also adding 16 yards rushing.

The Denver trio of Devontae Booker, Tim Patrick and Garrett Bolles also put down a dominant performance as the Broncos defeated Arizona 45-10. Bolles and Patrick made a quick pit-stop in Salt Lake City before Sunday's game though, taking in homecoming festivities with the Utes.
