ASU alumni in NFL: Aiyuk gets 1st receiving touchdown in Week 6
Arizona State alumni continue to find their footing in the NFL.
San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk got his first receiving touchdown, while Arizona Cardinals running back D.J. Foster finally found himself off of the team’s practice squad injured reserve.
A look at how the NFL Sun Devils fared in Week 6:
Aiyuk had his first receiving touchdown on Sunday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams. He had two receptions for a total of 12 yards to go along with the score. San Francisco was able to secure a divisional win against Los Angeles.
Arizona Cardinals kicker Zane Gonzalez had a solid primetime Monday Night Football performance against the Dallas Cowboys. Gonzalez was five-for-five on extra point attempts and added a 27-yard field goal. The Cardinals defeated the Cowboys, 38-10.
New England Patriots wideout N’Keal Harry was quiet against the Denver Broncos. He had zero receptions and was only targeted twice. Despite that, this was his third consecutive week as a starter.
Patriots defensive end Lawrence Guy has started every game this season for New England. Guy and the rest of the defensive unit did not allow the Denver Broncos to score a touchdown on Sunday. The Patriots lost the battle, however, falling 18-12.
Miami Dolphins punter Matt Haack had seven punts on Sunday, with his longest of the day being 46 yards. The Dolphins had a 24-0 win over the New York Jets.
Tennessee Titans guard Jamil Douglas was a part of some special team plays on Sunday. The Titans remain undefeated after a 42-36 win over the Houston Texans.
