Sun Devils in the NFL: Randall gets beat, Osweiler improves to 2-0 in Week 2

Here is your weekly update on former Sun Devils in the NFL.

Randall can’t contain Diggs in week 2 loss to Vikings

After an impressive performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week where he made a game-saving tackle in the fourth quarter, Green Bay Packers cornerback Damarious Randall had a rough night against the Minnesota Vikings.

Neil Hornsby shows the difference a week made for the young cornerback.

The Arizona State Sun Devils product came into the year as Green Bay's number one back after Sam Shields went down with a concussion. Randall had trouble filling the void as Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford connected with Diggs 11 times resulting in nine receptions for 182 yards and one touchdown.

Osweiler improves to 2-0 as Texans starter

Brock Osweiler threw for 268 yards and one touchdown in his second game with Houston, leading them to a 19-12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

In his first two games with Texans, Osweiler has shown he’s capable of making big throws. On Sunday, he hooked up with DeAndre Hopkins for a 35-yard touchdown and Will Fuller for a 53-yard score.

He has also shown he’s prone to throwing interceptions, throwing two balls to Kansas City defenders. Osweiler told ESPN that both of his picks in week two were ‘just inaccurate throws'.
