Prokies in the NFL: Week 6

By Brett Smith | October 20
via The Chicago Sun-Times

Some of the Prokies stepped up big time for their respective teams this week as we are a third of the way through the NFL season!

Duane Brown

Brown and the Seahawks lost in a heart-breaker in OT against the Steelers on Sunday Night Football.

Seattle is anxiously awaiting the return of Russell Wilson from injury, but Geno Smith has been serviceable for them.

Chuck Clark

Clark is probably having his best season yet for the Ravens, recording five tackles and a pass defend in the their rout against the Chargers.

He's been key in blitzing in the pass rush which has him ranked fourth in PFF for that, and the 13th safety overall as well.

Christian Darrisaw

Darrisaw found his way in the starting position at LT and he's already gained national attention as a rookie. The Vikings were able to pull off a win in OT against the Panthers in Charlotte, thanks to his great pass protection.

Terrell Edmunds

Terrell and the Steelers were on the flip-side of Duane Brown Sunday night, sneaking out a win thanks to a TJ Watt forced fumble. Terrell recorded three tackles this week which puts him at 33 total on the year.

Tremaine Edmunds

Tremaine had another monster week for the Bills despite the loss due to a fourth down stand from the Titans. He recorded ten tackles and 1.5 stuffs this week, putting him at 40 tackles on the year.

Brandon Facyson

Facyson was only picked up a couple weeks ago by the Raiders....and already is making an impact. After a horrific PR week with the Jon Gruden situation, the Raiders were able to pull off a win against the Broncos 34-24.

Facyson was gifted an interception but also had three tackles and two passes defended! That's how you step up immediately for your team.

Caleb Farley

Farley started his first NFL game on Monday night. Unfortunately, his season will be cut short due to an ACL tear he suffered in the game. Hokie Nation wishes him a speedy recovery!

Kendall Fuller

Kendall had his best game of the year even though Washington suffered a home loss against the Chiefs. He recorded eight tackles, a pass defended, and an interception!

Khalil Herbert

What a come up for the rookie in the last two weeks! He went from a kick returner and third-option running back to the starter for the Bears. Damien Williams tested positive for Covid-19 and David Montgomery is out with injury. All signs pointed toward Herbert to carry the load of them both.

Boy did he deliver. He had 19 carries for 97 yards with a touchdown and two receptions for 15 yards. He helped Bears almost pull off the win against their rivals, the Packers. I think you may be seeing more of him in the coming weeks, even when Williams and Montgomery return.

Tim Settle

Big Tim was back on the board this week for the Football Team. He recorded two tackles along with two stuffs in their loss to the Chiefs.

Wyatt Teller

Teller and the Browns suffered a tough loss (and suffered lots of injuries) against the Cardinals on Sunday. However, he did hop back into the top ten graded guards per PFF ranked at ninth overall.

Coach's Corner: Bruce Arians

Coach Arians pulled off a win in a battle against the Eagles on Thursday night, but the biggest win of the week was his donation to VT Athletics this week.

Thank you Coach!

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!
