Tigers in the NFL: Week 10

Tigers in the NFL: Week 10

By Colby Lanham || Clemson Athletic Communications   

  • Rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant was one of the few bright spots for the Pittsburgh Steelers as they hit the road against the New York Jets. Despite their 20-13 loss against the Jets, Bryant finished with four receptions for a career-high 143 yards and a touchdown. Bryant’s touchdown catch on Sunday, an 80-yard bomb from Ben Roethlisberger, was his sixth touchdown in four games. Bryant has carved out a niche for himself as a very viable deep threat alongside Pro-Bowler Antonio Brown, as over 40 percent of his receptions this season have gone for touchdowns.
  • Andre Ellington scored on a three-yard touchdown run in the Arizona Cardinals’ 31-14 win against the St. Louis Rams. Ellington has three rushing touchdowns and two touchdown receptions on the year. With starting quarterback Carson Palmer done for the season with a torn ACL, Ellington is figured to get even more looks on offense out of the backfield as the Cardinals look to continue their strong season. Among running backs, Ellington’s 582 yards rank ninth in the NFL.
  • Chandler Catanzaro tied the NFL record for most consecutive field goals (17) in the Arizona Cardinals’ 31-14 win over the St. Louis Rams. Cantanzaro shares the record with Kai Forbath, who plays for the Washington Redskins. Catanzaro went 4-for-4 on extra point attempts and remained perfect on the season. Theh former Clemson walk-on has scored 73 points on the year and is tied for sixth in the NFL among field goals made.
