Great Day Yesterday In NFL For Former Pitt Players

Great Day Yesterday In NFL For Former Pitt Players

It was a successful weekend for the Pitt football program.

On Saturday, the Panthers defeated Duke,54-45, on a last-second touchdown pass from Kenny Pickett to Maurice Ffrench.

Then yesterday, a handful of former Pitt greats had strong days for their NFL teams.

Avonte Maddox, CB, Philadelphia Eagles:

Maddox is filling in at safety and produced a huge play for the Eagles defense. As the Jaguars were leading and driving right before the half, Maddox made a big hit that forced a fumble. The Eagles offense turned that turnover into points as they went on to win, 24-18.

Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals:

Now that he’s recovered from his hamstring injury, Larry Fitzgerald looked like Larry Fitzgerald. For the game, Fitzgerald caught 8 passes for 102 yards, 1 TD and also converted a 2-point conversion.

Aaron Donald, DT, Los Angeles Rams:

The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year collected 2 more sacks, which now gives him 10 for the season.

Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals:

Statistically speaking, Tyler Boyd is playing as well as any wideout in the NFL over the last five weeks. In the Bengals win over Tampa Bay yesterday, Boyd caught 9 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown. If he keeps up this production, Boyd could be in his way to his first Pro Bowl.

James Conner, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers:

Speaking of the Pro Bowl, James Conner sure looks like he’ll be a member of the AFC team. Conner continued his breakout performance by running all over Cleveland. For the day, Conner rushed for 146 yards and 2 TD’s and also caught 5 passes for 66 yards.
