Former James Madison safety Dean Marlowe set a season-high for tackles and made a fumble recovery that clinched the win for the Buffalo Bills last Sunday, highlighting the group of CAA Football players competing during Week 8 of the NFL season.

Marlowe was Buffalo’s second-leading tackler with six stops in an important 24-21 victory over the New England Patriots that kept the Bills atop the AFC East with a 6-2 record. The former JMU standout’s biggest play, however, was recovering a Cam Newton fumble on the Buffalo 13-yard line with just 31 seconds remaining.

Former Delaware safety Nasir Adderley turned in a strong performance for the Los Angeles Chargers, recording seven tackles in a one-point setback to the Denver Broncos. Former JMU quarterback Ben DiNucci made his first career start for the Dallas Cowboys, completing 21-of-40 passes for 180 yards and also rushing for 22 yards on five carries. He’s the first Dukes’ quarterback to ever start an NFL game.

Seven former CAA Football players earned starts during Week 8. In addition to Adderley, DiNucci and Marlowe, tight end Nick Boyle (Delaware) of the Baltimore Ravens, defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon (Villanova) of the Kansas City Chiefs, nose tackle Bilal Nichols (Delaware) of the Chicago Bears and fullback Patrick Ricard (Maine) of the Baltimore Ravnes were in the opening lineup.

Below is a list of how the 24 former CAA Football players fared in Week 8 action.
