COUGAR GREAT Rian Lindell atoned for an earlier 44-yard field goal miss by hitting a career best 56 yard three-pointer as Buffalo defeated Miami, today. The WSU alum has connected on 18 of 21 field goal attempts this season and is perfect on 18 extra point attempts.

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

Husain Abdullah, S, Minnesota, 2nd season: Posted two special teams tackles in Vikings defeat of Chicago.

Tyron Brackenridge, CB, Jacksonville, 3rd season: Recorded three solo stops as starting corner in Jags loss to San Fran.

Erik Coleman, S, Atlanta, 6th season: Still nursing a bum knee, the Spokane native notched just two solo stops in Falcons win against Tampa Bay.

Jed Collins, FB, Arizona, 2nd season:Did not play; released from Cardinals’ practice squad on Tuesday.

Devard Darling, WR, Kansas City, 6th season: Did not play; out for the season with a knee injury.

Eric Frampton, S, Minnesota, 3rd season: Notched one special teams tackle in Vikings drubbing of Chicago and forced a fumble from the safety spot.

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

Brandon Gibson, WR, St. Louis, rookie: Caught three passes for 18 yards in Rams loss to Seattle. Averaging 5 catches per game since joining St. Louis.

Jason Hanson, K, Detroit, 18th season: Connected on one PAT and 1 of 2 field goal tries (from 22 yards) in the Lions 34-12 Thanksgiving day loss to Green Bay. His miss was from 54 yards, his first miscue from 50-plus yards in 9 attempts.

Jerome Harrison, RB, Cleveland, 4th season: Despite being the only back to gain 100-plus yards against the Bengals this season, the Ghost carried the ball just twice for 3 yards;also caught 3 passes for 5 yards in Browns fall to Cincy. Apparently, his reported heart-to-heart with Mangini kept him off the inactive this weekend, but did little else. The Ghost became the second Coug in a row to be featured in the Sports Illustrated Fantasy Football Market Watch column, but unlike Gibson last week, Harrison’s stock was given a down arrow.

Jason Hill, WR, San Francisco, 3rd season: No stats from 49ers fall to Jacksonville.

Rian Lindell, K, Buffalo, 10th season: Missed from 44 yards, but connected on a career long 56 yard field goal and 4 PATs in the Bills defeat of Miami.

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

Karl Paymah, CB, Minnesota, 5th season: Tallied two special teams tackles in Vikings win against the Bears.

Ropati Pitoitua, DE, New York Jets, 1st year: Notched his first professional tackle in Jets loss to Carolina.

Marcus Trufant, DB, Seattle, 7th season: Recorded three solo tackles in the Seahawks win against St. Louis.
