Vols In NFL Wrap Up (1/7)

Three NFL Vols were in action this past weekend during the Wild Card rounds and two of them were successful in advancing to the Divisional Playoffs on January 12th and 13th.

With Arian Foster and Morgan Cox moving on to the AFC Divisional Playoffs, a Vol is represented on every team taking part in the AFC games ultimately marking the 21st time in 22 years that at least one Vol will take part in the SuperBowl.

In the first game of the weekend, Arian Foster and the Texans beat the Cincinnati Bengals 19-13 to move on in the postseason. Foster became the first player to run for 100 yards in each of his first three playoff games in NFL history. The VFL gained 140 rushing yards on 32 carries with a touchdown. He also also had eight catches for 34 yards to gain 174 total yards. 

Foster and the Texans will play the New England Patriots in the Divisional Playoffs next weekend on Sunday, January 13 at 4:30 p.m. It will be a match-up between Foster and fellow Vol Jerod Mayo of the Patriots.

Marvin Mitchell's Vikings were the next team up. Mitchell got into the game but did not register a tackle in the 24-10 loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field.

Morgan Cox was the final NFL Vol in action on the weekend as he and the Ravens took down the Colts 24-9 on the day.

Cox snapped on all kicks and punts on the day including a 23-yard field goal, three extra points and four punts.

The Ravens will move on to face four NFL Vols in Robert Ayers, Britton Colquitt, Malik Jackson and Peyton Manning in Denver Saturday, January 12th at 8 p.m.
