Former Cards blow up in Week 12

Literally. It was really disturbing.

--Chris Redman stepped in for an injured Matt Ryan and completed 23-of-41 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns while leading the Atlanta Falcons to a come-from-behind win over Tampa Bay. He'll make his first start since 2007 this Sunday against Philadelphia.

--Elvis Dumervil notched two more sacks to extend his league-leading total to 14. He has nine sacks on 3rd down, which is already the sixth-best single-season mark in NFL history. The record is 11.

--David Akers drilled a 32-yard game-winner to lift the Eagles over the Washington Redskins. The made field goal was his 16th straight.

--Kerry Rhodes responded to being demoted from starting lineup for the first time in five years by notching a pair of interceptions in the New York Jets' 17-6 win over Carolina.

"I got the message," Rhodes said, standing on a chair so he could be heard by the throng of media. "The message was sent. Now, I am moving on and you're going to see Kerry Rhodes. The message was sent to me by Coach [Rex Ryan] and now I'm moving on. That's all it takes. You saw Kerry today and that's what you'll see."

--Former Cardinal linebacker/quote machine Brandon Johnson continued to fill in nicely for an injured Keith Rivers by recording eight tackles in Cincinnati's win over Cleveland He became a starter last year during week 7 and finished the year 112 tackles, second best on the team. Bengals blog Cincy Jungle says that Johnson's play makes Rivers's absence unnoticeable.
