Week two of the 2022 NFL season is now in the books. Let’s take a look around the league at how some former Trojans performed over the weekend, headlined by a monster day from a young wide receiver.

Amon-Ra’s Monster Week Two

Former Trojan Amon-Ra St. Brown took the NFL by storm in week two. St. Brown had a monster day for the Detroit Lions, catching nine passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns. For good measure, he also added two carries for 68 yards on the ground

Former USC wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown had a monster week two for the Detroit Lions.

With yet another big performance, St. Brown became the first player in NFL history to post six consecutive games with both eight or more receptions and a touchdown. The second-year wide receiver continues to rapidly rise up the league ranks.

Drake Gets His First Touchdown

While St. Brown continued his stretch of scoring touchdowns over the weekend, another former Trojan found the end zone for the first time. On Sunday, Atlanta Falcons rookie Drake London scored his first NFL touchdown.

Fittingly, the score came against the Rams in Los Angeles, with both of London’s parents in the stands. With the Falcons in town for the weekend, London was also at the Coliseum for USC’s win over Fresno State on Saturday night.

Agholor Makes a Huge Play

In addition to St. Brown and London, yet another USC wide receiver found the end zone on Sunday. New England Patriots wideout Nelson Agholor made possibly the play of the weekend in the NFL, going up and Mossing a Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back for a 44-yard touchdown reception.

Trojan fans should mark their calendars for October 9, when Agholor and the Patriots host St. Brown and the Lions.
