Knights in the Pros: Wild Card Round Recap

How did former UCF football players do in the first round of the playoffs?

Syndication: Democrat and Chronicle JAMIE GERMANO / USA TODAY NETWORK

With the first round of the NFL playoffs in the rearview mirror, let’s take a look at how former UCF Knights and their teams did on NFL Wild Card Weekend.

Gabe Davis — Buffalo Bills

Davis played a key role in helping the Bills knock off the Miami Dolphins by the score of 34-31. The talented wider receiver had 6 catches for 113 yards and one touchdown that would turn out to be the game-winner.

Davis and the Bills will face the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Round.

Jordan Franks and Matthew Wright — Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs had a first-round bye and will start their postseason in the Divisional Round against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Franks and Wright, who are both currently on the team’s practice squad, can play in that game if the team chooses to elevate them to the active roster.

Other Knights

Breshad Perriman — Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Perriman was listed as inactive and didn’t play in the Buccaneers’ 31-14 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys.

Shaquill Griffin — Jacksonville Jaguars

Griffin has been on Injured Reserve since mid-October with a back injury, so he was on the sideline for the Jaguars' stunning 31-30 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Jaguars will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional round.

Kalia Davis — San Francisco 49ers

Due to being on the Reserve/non-football injury list, Davis did not play in the 49ers’ crushing 43-21 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

The 49ers play Dallas in the Divisional Round.

Tay Gowan — Minnesota Vikings/Aaron Robinson — New York Giants

Neither Robinson nor Gowan played in the Giants-Vikings game, a 31-24 Giants win. Gowan is on the Vikings’ practice squad and Robinson is injured.

Robinson’s Giants will face the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round.
