Week eight of the NFL season saw plenty of ups and downs for former LSU Tigers. We start with the bad news. Two former Tigers defenders in Danielle Hunter and Jabril Cox were in action against each other. It ended badly as both would suffer season-ending injuries.

Next, we turn our focus to the good news.

Cyril Grayson was promoted from the practice squad for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was a dream moment for the former LSU Tigers track star as he caught a 50-yards touchdown pass from future Hall of Fame QB Tom Brady. It was the first scoring reception of his short career. Grayson has appeared in seven games in his three-year career.

A great moment, but it was the New Orleans Saints who got the last laugh in this game. Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase also continued their scoring ways but in a losing effort to the New York Jets.
