Knights in the NFL: Week 17 Recap

What a season in the NFL! From Logan Ryan's emergence as a key piece in the Patriots' defense, to first career TDs by rookies Michael Burton and Tyler Kroft, it was certainly an eventful 2015 season. And as is the case every week, Week 17 was another exciting week for our Knights in the NFL:

Tim Wright: Wright's only catch of the day was a big one in the first quarter, as he made a wide open 9 yard reception for Detroit's first score of the day. Teammate Michael Burton also got in on the action for the Lions with an eight yard reception, helping Detroit defeat the Chicago Bears 24-20 in their season finale.

Devin McCourty: McCourty returned from his ankle injury to lead the team with 7 tackles in their Week 17 loss to the Miami Dolphins. For a team riddled with injury throughout the season, having their defensive leader return in the season finale may provide a boost to the Pats leading into the playoffs.

Brandon Coleman: Coleman had another big game for the Saints, with 5 catches for 81 yards. After a disappointing beginning to his season, Coleman's productivity has improved in recent weeks, bringing reasons for optimism for next season.

Mohamed Sanu: Although we still have not seen Sanu throw a pass, the Bengals utilized him in the wildcat again yesterday, rushing twice for 11 yard. With uncertainty at the QB position going into next week's playoff game against the Steelers, we can expect the Bengals to continue to use a wildcat package featuring Sanu. Meanwhile, teammates Tyler Kroft and Clark Harris contributed three special teams tackle in the win over the Ravens.

Kenny Britt:With Case Keenum in at quarterback, the St. Louis offense has been mediocre at best. Improving offensively will certainly be a point of focus during the Rams' offseason, but Kenny Britt had a great audition to ensure continued reps next year. Britt caught 3 passes for 81 yards. With physical dominance and a huge downfield threat, if Britt is able to improve his consistency, he should be able to be a key asset for St Louis (or the Los Angeles??) Rams.
