Danny Amendola made Red Raider Nation proud with his performance last night. The former Red Raider led New England in receiving with eight catches for 152 yards during the Patriots 41-33 loss to the Eagles. His longest was a 50 yard catch made on a 3rd down.

Despite not having any touchdown catches, Amendola was instrumental in the Patriots second half comeback as he and Brady connected five times in the second half. He also nearly completed a pass on a trick play, which bounced off the hands of Tom Brady.

Amendola played for the Red Raiders from 2004-08 where he recorded 204 receptions for 2,246 yards and 15 touchdowns.
