Tuesday October 2, 2012Gators in the NFL – Week Four Update

Gainesville, Fla.

19 former Gators were active in week four of the NFL season. Of those 19, nine started for their respective teams.  

 

Former Gator Percy Harvin helped set an NFL record with the Minnesota Vikings in a 20-13 win at Detroit. Harvin’s kickoff-return touchdown for 105 yards and a punt-return touchdown by Marcus Sherels for 77 yards made Minnesota the first team in NFL history to record both a kickoff-return touchdown and a punt-return touchdown in a game three different times.

 

In addition, Harvin, who is in his fourth NFL season, has five career kickoff-return touchdowns. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers (six) has more kickoff-return touchdowns in a player’s first four seasons.
