Seattle Loses Mebane To Hamstring Pull

Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Brandon Mebane suffered a "really legit" hamstring injury, according to coach Pete Carroll, with no timetable on when he could return. Mebane's injury was the biggest blow from Seattle's 38-17 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. Mebane was injured during the first half of Seattle's third straight win. Carroll said veteran Kevin Williams would see his snap count increase, with Tony McDaniel and Jordan Hill also stepping in to help replace Mebane. Tight end Luke Willson suffered a sprained ankle against the Giants and his status for this Sunday's game at Kansas City is unknown. Carroll said the team hopes linebacker Malcolm Smith and safety Kam Chancellor will be back this week, but guard James Carpenter is likely out another week. RENTON, Wash. (AP) - November 11, 2014

Freaky Fumble Return Helps Oregon Beat Utah 51-27

Joe Walker returned Kaelin Clay's careless goal line fumble 100 yards for a touchdown, Marcus Mariota threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score, and No. 5 Oregon turned back No. 20 Utah 51-27 on Saturday night. Mariota ran for 114 yards and was 17-for-29 passing for 239 yards, keeping the Ducks in the thick of the College Football Playoff race. Clay had 152 yards on five catches, but it was the 1 yard he let slip away that will be remembered most. The Utes were on their way to taking a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter when Wilson connected with Clay, who was cruising to a long touchdown when he casually dropped the ball a yard before he crossed the goal line. As the Utes celebrated, Walker grabbed the ball and chugged down the sideline for a touchdown. SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – November 10, 2014
