ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - Week two in the NFL came and went and once again several former Knights made an impact. Twelve UCF alumni hold spots on NFL rosters, including Josh Sitton, who helped lead Green Bay to its first victory of the season. 

Sitton was part of the offensive line that opened holes for James Starks to become the first Packer back to top 100 rushing yards in a game since 2010. Running behind Sitton, Starks rushed for 132 yards on 20 attempts including a 32-yard touchdown run in the Packers 38-20 win over Washington.

Brandon Marshall (Chicago) had another big game in a last second 31-30 victory over the Vikings. Marshall had seven catches for 113 yards with one touchdown and averaged 16.1 yards per catch.

Bruce Miller (San Francisco) started at fullback in the 49ers 29-3 loss to Seattle. Miller had two catches for 22 yards and averaged 11 yards per catch in defeat.

Josh Robinson (Minnesota) got the start at cornerback and was part of a Vikings defense that caused three turnovers in a NFC North Division loss to Chicago.

North of the border, a trio of UCF players are continuing their CFL careers as Joe Burnett is suiting up with Edmonton, Mike Sims-Walker joined Winnipeg and Keith Shologan is with Saskatchewan. Burnett and Shologan have each seen action in eight contests, while Sims-Walker has yet to debut after signing his contract on Aug. 27.
