Alshon Jeffery, Jared Cook stand out for Gamecocks in the NFL

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

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery was once again Philadelphia’s leading receiver, grabbing six catches for 84 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles’ blowout win against Denver.

S D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger notched three tackles and two passes defensed for Washington against Seattle. He also intercepted Russell Wilson on a two-point conversion attempt, and nearly returned it for two points himself after this hilarious exchange of laterals with Josh Norman:

TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook had a monster game for Oakland in its win against Miami, pulling in eight catches for 126 yards. With 18 catches for 290 yards in the Raiders’ past three games, Cook is now leading them in both receptions and receiving yards. He’s been having one heck of a season.

DE Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: Clowney tallied four tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss, and a quarterback hit for Houston in its loss to Indianapolis. His sack of Jacoby Brissett was big blow that went for an eight-yard loss:

WR/PR Pharoh Cooper, Rams: Cooper had one catch for nine yards and returned three punts for an average of 18.3 yards and a long of 30.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop drilled a 48-yard field goal, but was 2-of-3 on his extra point attempts.

DB Captain Munnerlyn, Panthers: Munnerlyn recorded a tackle for Carolina in its big division win against Atlanta.

WR Bruce Ellington, Texans: Ellington caught three passes for 22 yards and was targeted a season-high eight times.
