After roughly three months in the Orlando bubble, the NBA has begun the offseason process. This means preparing for the draft, free agency and of course, figuring out how next season is going to be played amid the COVID-19 pandemic. More importantly, it means we can talk about what the future looks like for former Blue Devils who have taken their talents to the sport’s next level.
Yet another week of NFL play has passed. Although there were a few COVID-19 scares early in the week, for the first time since Week 3, all scheduled games were played. And with that, comes another edition of Duke in the NFL.
Last week Duke saw a Syracuse team that was unable to capitalize on its turnovers like teams in previous weeks have. As a result of that, the Blue Devils picked up their first win of the season in what seemed to be an all-around dominant game from the team, apart from the turnovers. This week, they are coming up against a much more formidable team in N.C. State. They will need last week’s strong performance to carry over in order to maintain that level of success.
Week five of the NFL season has come and gone. Although there has been some shakiness due to uncertainties with COVID-19, the season has progressed. In this week of action, several former Blue Devils highlighted their skills and packed up the stat sheet.

The long-awaited opening weekend of the NFL season has come and gone, as the first week came to a close Monday night. Due to the pandemic, the NFL opted not to have preseason games this year. For many teams, this weekend was the first time they were able to see their players on the field, and many fans expected the play to be a bit sloppier than it typically is. For former Duke players, the first week of the season had its ups and downs.
Earlier this week, Duke announced its starting quarterback after a competitive preseason. Clemson transfer Chase Brice fought with redshirt junior Chris Katrenick and redshirt sophomore Gunnar Holmberg for the starting position and ultimately earned the role by “[making] plays at the highest rate,” as head coach David Cutcliffe said when the decision was made.
