to lift Broncos
Former Rainbows star Jason Elam kicked a 25-yard field goal and two extra points but his Denver Bronocs lost to the Seattle Seahawks, 20-17, yesterday.
It was Elam's 17th field goal in 22 attempts this season. He also has 19 extra points and leads the Broncos with 70 points.
Defensive end Ma'a Tanuvasa (Mililani) started but did not record a tackle in the loss.
Seahawks tight end Itula Mili (Kahuku) came off the sidelines for starter Christian Fauria but did not record a reception.
In the New Orleans Saints' 24-6 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Chris Naeole (Kahuku) returned to the starting lineup at guard. Naeole had missed the previous week with a knee injury, snapping a streak of 23 consecutive starts.
Ink Aleaga (Pac-Five), who has started at linebacker the past two games for New Orleans, was inactive yesterday with a knee injury.
In Arizona's 23-19 win over Detroit, Adrian Murrell (Leilehua) rushed twice for 4 yards and had one reception for minus-1 yard.
It was announced earlier last week that Murrell would lose the starting job he has had since being traded from the New York Jets to the Cardinals last year.
Michael Pittman, who took the start, gained 133 yards on 23 carries and had a 58-yard touchdown run. Murrell has 318 yards in nine games, eight of which were starts. He has no touchdowns.
He rushed for 1,000 yards in 1996, 1997 and 1998.
