Prokies in the NFL: Week 16

By Brett Smith | December 30
Nfl playoffs

Only one week is left in the NFL season and there are still eleven teams that have not clinched a spot in the playoffs....its going to get messy!


Duane Brown

The Seahawks secured their spot and home field advantage in the playoffs this week in their win over the Rams. Brown helped pave the way as he still ranked the sixth tackle in PFF grades.

Isaiah Ford

Ford had five receptions for 37 yards this week, three of those being first down completions. The Dolphins were able to capture a win over the Raiders helping their playoff case.

Logan Thomas

Thomas had seven receptions for 63 yards in Washington's loss against the Panthers. Washington still controls their own destiny, but it is a must win this weekend for the Football Team. I think a big day from Thomas will equal a win against the Eagles.


Chuck Clark

Clark recorded four tackles and a pass deflection in the Ravens win against the Giants. The Ravens are also in the hunt, so a win against the Bengals would send them to the postseason.

Terrell Edmunds

Terrell recorded five tackles in the Steelers comeback win over the Colts. Thanks to a big second half effort by the Terrell and the defense, they were able to clinch the division (along with the Browns loss).

Tremaine Edmunds

Tremaine recorded five tackles in their blowout win over the Patriots and the Bills were able to clinch the division over the Dolphins with the win. If you told me five years ago the Bills and the Dolphins would lead the AFC east in 2020......I wouldn't have believed you.

Kyle Fuller

Kyle recorded three tackles in their win over Jacksonville that kept the Bears playoff hopes alive. A Bears win or a Cardinals loss sends them to the playoffs!

Kendall Fuller

Kendall recorded five tackles that included one for loss in Washington's loss. While most the Washington defense looked out of sorts, Kendall had one of his best games of the year.

Tim Settle

Settle recorded a tackle for Washington on Sunday.

The Joey Slye Section

On the other side of the Washington loss, Slye and the Panthers were able to make the Football Team's path to the playoffs a bit more difficult. Joey didn't kick any FG's this week as he is still 29-36 on the year.

Bonus Section: Coaching Special

Head Coach Bruce Arians was able to resurrect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 as they are headed to the playoffs for the first time in thirteen years. (With the help of some key pick-ups, of course.)


Welcome to the Terror Dome my fellow Hokies. I am a 2019 graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in Agribusiness along with minors in Communication Studies and Entrepreneurship. I come from a Hokie family. My mom, dad, sister, grandfather, uncle, great uncle, two cousins….you get the point, I bleed maroon and orange. I can’t even remember the last time I missed a Virginia Tech football game in person or on TV, laptop, iPhone, or even radio (the 2003 Texas A&M game). I am located in the beautiful small town of Seaford, Virginia working for a coffee company in research and development. In my free time you will see me playing golf, fishing, or playing electric guitar. Yes, I know how to play Enter Sandman. So to my Sons and Daughters of Hokie Nation, START JUMPING!
