As the NFL season moves along, The Blue Zone takes a look at how some former Blue Devils in the NFL performed in Week 6.
Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington
After a disappointing performance two weeks ago where he put up negative seven yards with a fumble, Crowder caught 3 balls for a total of 15 yards in a 26-24 win against the 49ers. Crowder, who had previously been dealing with a hamstring injury, told the media before the game that he felt “100 percent.” Washington hopes to improve to 4-2 next week when it faces the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football.
Laken Tomlinson, LG, San Francisco 49ers
Although the 49ers eventually lost to Washington 26-24, Tomlinson and the San Francisco offense had some bright spots. With new quarterback C.J. Beathard under center for most of the game, San Francisco's offense amassed 279 yards in passing and looked much better than when it had Brian Hoyer under center. However, Tomlinson and the line did not give Carlos Hyde and Matt Breida much to work with, as each ran for only 28 and 21 yards respectively.
Ross Cockrell, CB, New York Giants
In a surprising Monday night victory for the Giants, Cockrell put up 3 tackles and an assisted tackle. Cockrell and the Giant’s defense allowed only 10 points against the Denver Broncos and showed resiliency in their first win of the season. The Giants, who have been plagued with injuries thus far in the season, will look to build on this win next week against the Seahawks.
Lucas Patrick, G, Green Bay Packers
Rookie guard Lucas Patrick did not start this week for the Packers when they faced off against Minnesota. Patrick, however, did play in the 2nd half at left guard after Lane Tayor left the game with knee and ankle injuries. The Packers, who lost Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter to a broken collarbone, did not score in the second half and eventually lost the game 23-10.
Thomas Hennessy, LS, New York Jets
Hennessy once again executed his role as long-snapper perfectly on Sunday. Kicker Chandler Cantanzaro hit both extra points and connected on a 28-yard field goal with 3:40 left in the game. The Jets surprisingly played the defending Super Bowl champions close, although Brady and the Patriots eventually came out on top, winning 24-17.
