NFL Cougar Highlights: Week 17
The NFL record book also fell victim (again) to Hanson. His 44-yard field goal was the 188th 3-pointer from 40 or more yards, the most by any kicker in league history. The Spokane native already owned the NFL record for most field goals (52) from 50-plus yards.
Here's how all the NFL Cougs performed in week 17:
Jed Collins, FB, New Orleans, 4th season: Caught one pass for 5 yards in the Saints' 44-38 loss to Carolina.
Eric Frampton, S, Dallas, 6th season: Recorded six tackles (4 solo) on defense and assisted in 2 additional special teams stops in the Cowboys' 28-18 loss to Washington.
Brandon Gibson, WR, St. Louis, 4th season: The Puyallup native caught three passes for 45 yards in the Rams' 20-13 loss to Seattle.
Jason Hanson, K, Detroit, 21st season: The Spokane native was true on a 44-yard field goal attempt and three extra-points in the Lions' 26-24 loss to Chicago.
Jerome Harrison, RB, Detroit, 7th season: Did not play; officially listed on the Lions' reserve/non-football injury list. If you missed the Thanksgiving day special The NFL Today (CBS) aired on Harrison's road to recovery, you can view it here.
Alex Hoffman-Ellis, LB, San Francisco, rookie: Did not play; released from the 49ers' development squad on Christmas Eve.
Chris Ivory, RB, New Orleans, 3rd season: Rushed the ball four times for 22 yards in the Saints' loss to the Panthers.
Rian Lindell, K, Buffalo, 13th season: The Vancouver native missed on two field goal attempts (giving him just 3 miscues for the season), but was good on 4 extra-point tries in the Bills' 28-9 win against the New York Jets.
Ropati Pitoitua, DE, Kansas City, 4th season: The Tacoma native posted six tackles (4 solo) in the Chiefs' 38-3 fall to Denver.
Marcus Trufant, DB, Seattle, 10th season: The Tacoma native tallied three tackles (2 solo) and defensed an endzone pass in the Seahawks victory against St. Louis.
