The stories in week six were the Falcons continuing their unbeaten streak, Peyton Manning leading the Broncos from 24 down to 35 unanswered comeback points, and the Giants spanking the once hot 49ers.

From a Crimson Tide perspective, Trent Richardson finally got to experience victory in the NFL, but left the game due to a rib injury. In fact, injuries are mounting for several Crimson Tide players, including the sustained knee injury of Dre Kirkpatrick (though he did particiate in practice last week), Brandon Deaderick (ankle) and Dont’a Hightower (hamstring).

A couple of Bama notables from the weekend:

Demeco Ryans (PHI) with 13 tackles to follow his 12 tackle performance the week before.
Mark Barron (TB) with 8 tackles and 1 INT in a winning effort over the Chiefs.
