Pro Bears Week 14

Dec 15, 2020
Aaron Rodgers had another terrific performance in a Week 14 victory over the Lions and has emerged as one of the frontrunners for NFL MVP honors.

BERKELEY – Aaron Rodgers continued to strengthen his case for being named the NFL's 2020 MVP by helping his Green Bay Packers clinch a NFC North title and a playoff spot by passing for three touchdowns and running for another in a 31-24 win at Detroit in Week 14 of the league's action. Rodgers, who has won the honor twice previously in 2011 and 2014, leads the NFL with 39 touchdown passes and a 119.7 passer rating while he is also fourth in the league with a career-best 69.6% completion percentage.

Rodgers is one of four former Cal players who completed their careers with the Golden Bears on rosters or injured reserve lists of teams that have clinched playoff spots along with Tyson Alualu (Pittsburgh Steelers), Cameron Jordan (New Orleans Saints) and Mitchell Schwartz (Kansas City Chiefs injured reserve) with Schwartz still eligible to come off the injured reserve.

Cal has a total of 15 affiliates with teams that currently sit in a playoff spot with three weeks remaining in the NFL season with the remainder of the list including Trevor Davis (Washington practice squad), Jared Goff (Los Angeles Rams), Mychal Kendricks (Seattle practice squad), Jordan Kunaszyk (Washington), Patrick Laird (Miami), Ron Rivera (Washington head coach), Vincent Rivera (Washington defensive quality control), Richard Rodgers Sr. (Washington assistant defensive backs coach), Nick Sundberg (Washington), Evan Weaver (Arizona practice squad) and Davis Webb (Buffalo practice squad).

Keenan Allen also had another memorable contest in the Los Angeles Chargers' 20-17 Week 13 victory over Atlanta by catching nine passes for 52 yards and one touchdown as he set an NFL record for the most receptions ever by a player in his first 100 games. Allen, who has played in 99 career games, has 623 career receptions to give him one more than the 622 catches Antonio Brown had over his first 100 contests. Allen has 99 receptions this season and is six catches away from bettering the career-high 104 receptions he made in 2019.

Chad Hansen also had another strong individual game with a career-high seven receptions for 56 yards, catching all seven throws he was targeted on during Houston's 36-7 loss at Chicago. Hansen has 12 catches for 157 yards over the last two games (five receptions, career-high 101 yards in 26-20 Week 13 loss to Indianapolis after not previously playing in a regular-season NFL game since the 2017 season. Hansen was first activated by Houston off its practice squad the day before their Indianapolis game and then after returning to the practice squad two days later was activated again to the 53-player roster the day before the Chicago contest.

In other notable news, Ashtyn Davis of the New York Jets was placed on the injured reserve list.

Cal currently has 30 former football student-athletes affiliated with NFL teams including 18 on active 53-player NFL rosters, three on injured reserve, five on practice squads and five that are coaching in the league.
