The 14th week of the NFL season saw Jacksonville Jaguars rookie Dede Westbrook find the end zone for the first time in his professional career (excluding the preseason). The former Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver and 2016 Biletnikoff Award winner finished with five receptions on eight targets for 81 yards and this score in the Jags’ big win against the Seahawks:
Anyone know what that celebration was? No, really, I’m so confused. But I loved it anyway! Dede’s teammate Aaron Colvin recorded seven solo tackles and helped the Jags improve to 9-4 on the season. Oh yeah, Colvin also got away with this egregious trip. Definitely wasn’t a flop.
Any time a Pete Carroll team loses, am I right?
Moving on, Washington’s Samaje Perine put up 45 yards on 17 carries and added four catches for seven yards in a loss to the Chargers. Stacy McGee added two solo tackles and assisted on another. Here’s Jay Gruden speaking on Samaje’s growth through his rookie season:
