Prokies in the NFL: Week Four
The Prokies had quite a performance in week four of the NFL season, especially on the defensive side of the ball!
The Seahawks ended their two-game skid in a big road win against the 49ers this week. Brown ranks 12th in pass blocking per PFF grades, which was clear this past week with Wilson throwing for two touchdowns.
Clark had himself a solid week in the Ravens win against the Broncos. He recorded seven total tackles and a stuff. He's also drastically improving each week as he is now the THIRD ranked safety in the NFL.
After a big week one win at Buffalo, Terrell and the Steelers are on a current three game skid. However, he did have the most tackles yet this season for him with seven.
Without a doubt, 'Maine had the best week out of any the Prokies. One of the highest graded defenders of the week at 94.1 per PFF, six tackles, and an interception was enough to get him AFC Defensive Player of the week. There were a lot of doubts for Tremaine as he hadn't looked like a top 20 pick consistently, but he sure proved everyone wrong this week.
On the other side of Chuck Clark this week, Kyle and the Broncos were handed a tough loss at home. Kyle recorded five tackles this week as the Broncos prep for the struggling Steelers.
Kendall only recorded three tackles and was tasked several times with guarding the beast of a human Kyle Pitts. He also had two key passes defended in the Falcons final push to win.
Yosh gained another start this week for the Packers and looked great. Head Coach Matt LaFleur has been vocal about how impressive he has been stepping into a big role.
#Packers coach Matt LaFleur did not rule out the possibility that Yosh Nijman would stay at LT when Elgton Jenkins returns. He said at the least it would cause a discussion. No update on Jenkins' progress though. He did not practice.— Tom Silverstein (@TomSilverstein) October 6, 2021
Big Tim recorded another tackle this week in Washington's win against the Falcons.
After a solid job covering for the Texans, Slye was picked up for the 49ers. Starting Kicker Robbie Gould was placed on IR.
