OU football: Adrian Peterson passes Jim Brown, Kyler Murray plays Marquise Brown, Sooners in the NFL week 2 – The Oklahoma Daily

Between Thursday evening and Monday night, 23 former Sooners took the field once again for week two of the 2019 NFL season. Heres a look at their performances:

Adrian Peterson

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson was a very surprising healthy scratch in Washington's season-opener against the Eagles. Just days after he was named the Redskins offensive MVP for last season, many speculated about the veterans release.

Peterson reclaimed the starting gig this week in D.C. after Derrius Guice was sidelined by a knee injury, and the future hall of famer made his mark (and history) right away in Sundays game against the Cowboys.

Though he had just 10 carries for 25 yards on the day, Peterson found his way to the end zone early in the second quarter and secured his 107th career rushing touchdown.

With the score, Peterson passed NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown for 5th place on the NFLs all time rushing touchdown list.

Just a hour north of the nations capital, a whole host of graduated Sooners suited up in Baltimore. With the Ravens taking on the Cardinals, five alumni of the OU football program graced the field between the two sides.

Ravens tight end Mark Andrews continued his torrid start to the season during the primetime matchup, snagging 8-of-9 targets for 112 yards and a touchdown.

Marquise Hollywood Brown also kept the film rolling, catching eight passes for 86 yards.

Their opponent, 2018 crimson and cream quarterback Kyler Murray, was also quite impressive, completing 25 of 40 pass attempts for 349 yards.

Unfortunately, Murrays Cardinals found themselves behind early on, and the 2019 first overall pick didnt have the same comeback magic as he did in his NFL debut this time around, as the Ravens took the contest by a final score of 23-17.
