Damarious Randall lays out Kansas City Chiefs running back on Monday Night Football

The Packers rookie from Arizona State had made some notable plays early on Monday Night Football, even drawing compliments from former NFL head coach and ESPN color analyst John Gruden.

After getting beat by Chiefs receiver Jeremy Maclin on a few plays (including a 60-yard catch-and-run), Randall emphatically reintroduced himself to the fans of Lambeau Field by laying the hammer down on Kansas City running back Charcandrick West.

Randall would finish with three tackles (two solo) and one pass defended in Green Bay's 38-28 win over the Chiefs.

Rashad Ross returns kickoff for a touchdown

The speedy Ross weaved through the coverage team and then tight-roped the sideline while breaking a tackle before finding his way into the end zone on a 101-yard return.

Ross also snagged two catches on two targets for 27 yards, and returned four kickoffs for 158 yards in Washington's 32-21 loss to the New York Giants.
