Ryan Succop scores a ton of points, Jared Cook makes an insane catch for Gamecocks in the NFL

A look at how former South Carolina players fared in the NFL last week.

Just a bit of a difficult catch here.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: A week removed from setting an NFL record with 47 consecutive makes within 50 yards, Succop made 4 of his 5 field goals attempts — with a long of 47 yards — and scored all of the Titans’ points in their win against Cleveland.

TE Jared Cook, Raiders: After a season-low in production last week, Cook rebounded in a big way for Oakland in its wild win against Kansas City. Cook hauled in six receptions for 107 yards and made one of the crazier catches of the season, which was initially ruled a touchdown on the field. While it was overturned, it did set up the eventual game-winning score for Oakland.

The Raiders put up a nice feature piece on Cook, which goes inside the play and also talks about his rapport with quarterback Derek Carr.

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram notched three tackles, including a sack and two tackles for loss, as well as a quarterback hit for Los Angeles in its 21-0 victory against Denver. His sack was a bit controversial, as he got flagged for roughing the passer despite what appears to be a perfectly legal hit:

S Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart came up with just one tackle for the Broncos in their shutout loss.

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery had two catches for 37 yards for Philadelphia in its big win over the NFC East rival Redskins. Tight Zach Ertz’s development into an elite pass-catcher has probably eaten into Jeffery’s red zone targets.

DB Captain Munnerlyn, Panthers: Munnerlyn notched a tackle and a sack for Carolina in its baffling loss to the Bears.

S D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger tallied four tackles for Washington.

WR/KR Pharoh Cooper, Rams: Cooper returned one kickoff for 18 yards and three punts for 30 yards, with a long of 20.
