After Stanford suffered another disappointing loss this past weekend to a pass-happy Washington State, Cardinal fans can at least rejoice in some alumni who performed well in this week’s NFL action.
Week 11 in the NFL saw pivotal changes in the playoff race for many teams with Stanford Cardinal ties.
