WASHINGTON STATE KICKING great Rian Lindell atoned mightily for an end of regulation miscue by connecting on a 47-yard field goal in overtime, as the Buffalo Bills quieted the New York Jets 16-13, today.

Here’s how all of the NFL Cougars performed in week six :

Husain Abdullah, S, Minnesota, 2nd season: Tallied one solo special teams tackle in Vikings’ defeat of Baltimore.

Tyron Brackenridge, CB, Jacksonville, 3rd season: No stats from Jags’ overtime defeat of St. Louis.

Eric Frampton, S, Minnesota, 3nd season: No stats from Vikings’ win against Baltimore.

Devin Frischknecht, TE, Green Bay, rookie : Did not play; on injured reserve (knee).

Brandon Gibson, WR, Philadelphia, rookie: Declared inactive (much like the Philly offense) for the Eagles’ loss to Oakland.

Jason Hanson, K, Detroit, 18th season: No runs, no hits, no field goal attempts, and no hope for the Spokane native and his Lion teammates in their 26-0 fall to Green Bay.

Jerome Harrison, RB, Cleveland, 4th season: Ran the ball five times for 26 yards (5.2 yards per touch) in the Browns’ loss to Pittsburgh.

Jason Hill, WR, San Francisco, 3rd season: Did not play; bye week.

Rob Meier, DE/DT, Jacksonville, 10th season: Did not play; out for the season with a shoulder injury.

Karl Paymah, CB, Minnesota, 5th season: Recorded two solo stops from the corner and another on special teams in Vikings’ narrow escape from the Ravens.
