Sam Bradford had an excellent game for the St. Louis Rams, and Brandon Weeden rebounded with a decent performance for the Cleveland Browns. Check out how NFL players with state ties did during Week 2:

* DE, Mark Anderson (Tulsa Washington): Three tackles during a 35-17 rout of Kansas City.

* RB, Tashard Choice (OU): The reserve running back contributed 37 yards on eight carries.


* TE, Jermaine Gresham (OU, Ardmore): Four catches, 37 yards during a 34-27 victory over Cleveland in the first of two Buckeye Bowls this season.


* DE, Juqua Parker (OSU): Two tackles, including one sack of Cincy quarterback Andy Dalton.

* QB, Brandon Weeden (OSU, Edmond Santa Fe): The rookie rebounded from a grizzly opening week by completing 26 of 37 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns.

* WR, Dez Bryant (OSU): Three catches for 17 yards. A couple of drops.
