The Prokies had another solid perfomance in week six, along with rookie debuts and new signees.

Duane Brown

The Seahawks suffered another tough loss against the Rams on Thursday night, but they suffered an even bigger loss in losing Russell Wilson to a hand injury.

Brown will have the task of protecting....Geno Smith? My goodness, that is a throwback.

Chuck Clark

Chuck has been the talk of the Ravens defense, as he was receiving lots of praise in the Ravens OT thriller on Monday night. He only recorded four tackles, but he has become quite the utility defender for the Ravens and is the fifth rated safety per PFF grades.

Christian Darrisaw

After recovering from an off-season groin injury, Darrisaw finally got his NFL debut on Sunday. The Vikings were able to pull of a win in his first start against the Lions.

Terrell Edmunds

Terrell and the Steelers pulled through in a must win game against the Denver Broncos after a three game skid. He recorded five tackles this week and stuff, putting him at 28 tackles on the year.

Tremaine Edmunds

The reigning AFC Defensive Player of the Week had another solid week in the Bills huge AFC win Sunday night over the Chiefs. 'Maine recorded nine total tackles and a stuff, putting him at 30 tackles on the season.

Caleb Farley

Farley finally got to see the field after recovering from his back surgery and got some game time. He recorded two tackles in limited snaps, but he (and the Titans) are hoping for more involvement in the coming weeks.

Kyle Fuller

After a solid 3-0 start for the Broncos, they have been knocked back down to Earth QUICKLY. In their loss to the Steelers this week, Kyle recorded a tackle this week.

Kendall Fuller

Kendall and the Football Team suffered a tough loss at home against the Saints this past Sunday. Interesting stat, he is fifth in the NFL for run defense PFF grades for cornerbacks. He also recorded two tackles and a pass deflection against the Saints.

Khalil Herbert

JUUUUUUUICE! After David Montgomery went out with injury last week, Herbert and Damien Williams started splitting time at running back. They split it almost right down the middle, Juice with 18 and Williams with 16. Juice had 75 yards with his 18 carries as the Bears shocked the Las Vegas Raiders.

Yosh Nijman

Yosh got another start this week as Elgton Jenkins wasn't quite ready to go this week from his ankle injury. Yosh has been playing quite well, and could keep his spot at LT until All-Pro David Bahktiari returns.

Joey Slye

As mentioned in week five, Joey Slye was picked up by the 49ers when starting kicker Robbie Gould was placed on IR. He kicked a 47 yard field goal and converted an extra point in the 49ers loss to the Cardinals.

Other News and Notes

Brian Johnson- After being on the Bears practice squad for the early part of the season, he was picked up by the Saints early this week due to an injury to Cody Parkey.

Coach's Corner: Bruce Arians

To no surprise, Bruce Arians and the Bucs whacked the struggling Dolphins 45-17 to put them at 5-1 on the season.
