Twenty-Seven Former Tigers on NFL Playoff Rosters

BATON ROUGE – Twenty-seven former LSU players are headed to the NFL Playoffs, which begin this weekend with six Super Wildcard games.

LSU’s list of playoff participants includes 24 players on active rosters and three on injured reserve. LSU has at least one player on the roster of 13 of the 14 playoff teams, including four on the NFC North Champions Minnesota Vikings. The only team without LSU representation is the Philadelphia Eagles.

All 24 former Tigers on active rosters will be in action this weekend for the opening round of the playoffs.

Sunday’s matchup between the Bills and Dolphins in Buffalo will feature the Ferguson brothers – Reid (Bills) and Blake (Dolphins) – who are long snappers for their respective teams. The Ferguson brothers were LSU long snappers for eight consecutive years from 2012-2019 with Blake winning a national title with the Tigers as a senior in 2019.

Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and All-America Ja’Marr Chase will look to lead the Bengals to another Super Bowl when Cincinnati hosts Patrick Queen and the Baltimore Ravens at 7:15 p.m. on Sunday.

Other Sunday highlights include the NFL’s leading receiver Justin Jefferson and the Vikings hosting Cordale Flott and the New York Giants at 3:30 p.m. on FOX. Jefferson led the NFL with 128 receptions for 1,809 yards during the regular season.
