Aggies In The NFL: A No. 1 Playoff Seed And A Personal Record Extended

Let's take a look at former Texas A&M football players in the NFL in Week 18

An unprecedented Week 18 in the NFL brought with it playoff-seeding chaos. With Indianapolis just needing a win to get in, and up against a struggling Jacksonville team without a coach, the Colts inexplicably laid an egg and will be golfing next week rather than playing football.

On Sunday, because of the chaos that already occurred in games prior, the Steelers-Ravens and Raiders-Chargers games became play-in games, with Pittsburgh and Las Vegas winning.

But there were several former Texas A&M players who had big games as the regular season drew to a close.

Tennessee quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw four touchdown passes against Houston, helping the Titans seal the No. 1 seed in the AFC and the coveted first-round bye, while Tampa Bay receiver Mike Evans now has eight 1,000-yard seasons in a row to begin his career, and added two touchdowns to finish second in the league in scores.

DE Myles Garrett - The Cleveland Browns defensive standout recorded one sack, one tackle for a loss, and two quarterback hits in the Browns' 21-16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

QB Ryan Tannehill - Tannehill completed 23 passes on 32 attempts for 287 yards, with four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Titans' 28-25 win over the Houston Texans.

WR Mike Evans - The seventh overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft caught six passes on seven targets for 89 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers 41-17 win over the Carolina Panthers.

WR Christian Kirk - The Arizona Cardinals wideout recorded two catches on three targets for 43 yards in the Cardinals' 38-30 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

LB Von Miller - The second overall pick of the 2011 draft recorded one sack, five tackles including three for a loss, and two quarterback hits in the Rams' 27-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

DL Kingsley Keke - Keke is still dealing with an illness and did not play.

WR Josh Reynolds - Reynolds caught one ball on three targets for 11 yards and in Detroit's 37-30 win over Green Bay.

TE Ricky Seals-Jones - The former A&M tight end was once again inactive while dealing with a concussion suffered in Week 17.

QB Kellen Mond - Minnesota's rookie third-round pick was once again inactive.

OL Cedric Ogbuehi - Ogbuehi was inactive.

OT Jake Matthews - Matthews played all 50 offensive snaps for Atlanta on Sunday and forced a fumble on special teams.

C Ryan McCollum - The undrafted rookie center played 31 offensive snaps in Detroit's 37-30 win over Green Bay.
