#USCtotheNFL: Marqise Lee Scores His First Regular Season Touchdown

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Former USC Trojans standout wideout Marqise Lee played a huge role in the Jacksonville Jaguars come from behind victory over the New York Giants, snatching in a nice 30-yard touchdown pass from fellow rookie Blake Bortles.

Facing off against fellow NFL rookie Devon Kennard, well not exactly in a one-on-one matchup, the 39th overall draft pick utilized his blazing quickness in the red zone for the first touchdown of his regular season career.

Lee entered the game with 16 catches on the season, limited to just eight games of action due to injury. Lee caught a team-high six balls for 75 yards, including the touchdown, in a 25-24 victory on Sunday. After being targeted 10 times in the season opener against Philadelphia, Lee had fallen behind as compared to his fellow first-year wideouts.

In other notable #USCtotheNFL news this weekend, Nickell Robey had a great game for the Buffalo Bills against the Cleveland Browns. In fact, Robey recovered a touchdown in the end zone following a strip sack, but following a review was called back as an incomplete pass. In that same Buffalo Bills vs. Cleveland Browns game this morning, former USC wideout Robert Woods caught a team-high four passes for 71 yards, averaging 34 yards per catch in the Bills' 26-10 win.

Did we mention that Robert Woods also made one fantastic catch this weekend? These high school and college teammates always had fun going back and forth in wide receiver competitions over the years. So without even knowing it, at least this weekend, these two stud NFL prospects continue to go back-and-forth for best wideout honors.
