The Syracuse Orange lots their final home game of the season, so you probably watched a bit of NFL action this weekend to sooth yourself. If you’re following former Oranges in the pros, here’s some of what you may have seen. (All stats from Pro Football Reference and NFL.com)
Justin Pugh, Arizona Cardinals
Pugh’s streak of 100% of offensive snaps came to an end this Sunday, as he only played 89% of the offensive snaps in a 3 point loss to the Patriots. The veteran admitted that some of the struggles on offense were due to defensive players trying to bat down his quarterback’s passes.
Alton Robinson, Seattle Seahawks
Robinson played just 14 total snaps in the game, failing to register any stats in the victory over the Eagles.
Riley Dixon, New York Giants
Dixon returned from the COVID-19 list with 5 punts in the victory over the Bengals, booting a 61 yard punt to go along with 2 pinned inside the Bengals 20.
Zaire Franklin, Indianapolis Colts
Franklin saw a big increase in playing time this week, jumping in on 32 defensive snaps (44%) during the 45-26 loss to the Titans. Franklin had a season high 3 solo tackles and another 3 combined tackles.
Sterling Hofrichter, Atlanta Falcons
Hof only punted 3 times in the 43-6 victory over the Raiders, kicking for a net average of 31 yards per kick.
Trishton Jackson, Los Angeles Rams
Jackson was inactive for his team’s game against the 49ers.
Doug Marrone, Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jags were defeated 27-25 by the Cleveland Browns, leading to the firing of General Manager David Caldwell. However, owner Shad Khan said that Marrone was safe until the end of the season.
Out for the Season with Injury
Chandler Jones, Arizona Cardinals
Glad to see some solid names getting some run in the newest NFL season.
