Vols in the NFL – Week 17 Update

Alvin Kamara’s score pushed the New Orleans Saints to victory, 18-10, keeping them in the playoff picture in the NFC. Kamara’s offensive efforts highlighted the 17th week of NFL play for former Tennessee Volunteers.
 
Kamara, a 2022 Pro Bowl selection, ran for 32 yards, but it was his pass catching that propelled the Saints to victory on the offensive end. Kamara recorded the only touchdown of the game for New Orleans, a 12-yard pass from Taysom Hill. The fifth-year running back finished the day with 68 receiving yards.

The Saints’ leading receiver in the victory was Marquez Callaway, who made six grabs for 97 yards. The second year wide out has tallied 255 yards in the past three games.
 
Jalen Reeves-Maybin continues to be on a tear in the Detroit Lions’ second-level. He wrapped up eight tackles against Seattle and now has 20 in the last three contests. In a contract year, Reeves-Maybin has shown out, totaling 70 tackles in 14 games. Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn said last week, “obviously, we want the player back, because he’s a good player.”
 
Morgan Cox had a strong day for the special teams unit in the Tennessee Titans’ dominating win, 34-3, over Miami. On a cold and rainy day in Nashville, Cox was successful on all 10 snaps (four punts, four extra points, two field goals).
 
The final week of the regular season comes up next week. Seven players and their teams have clinched a playoff berth, while 13 remain in the hunt coming down to the final week.
