Prokies in the NFL: Week Six
We are two games from the halfway point in the NFL season and the Prokies are seriously heating up. Toe-tap touchdowns, brotherly competition, and coaching blowouts are on tap this week.
The Seahawks had their bye week this past weekend, but Brown still ranks eighth among guards per PFF grades.
Ford recorded no receptions this week, but with Tua just announced as the new starter that could change.
LT3 had a fantastic week, recording three receptions for 42 yards and another TD for the once QB turned TE. It was no easy touchdown either!
This is a moon ball by Allen, got PLENTY of air under it to drop it over the shoulder. Great catch by TE Logan Thomas. Washington gets the TD before the half. pic.twitter.com/Dm6Ca73lig— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) October 18, 2020
Clark recorded three tackles this week and a fumble recovery as they held off the Eagles from a comeback to move the Ravens to 5-1. On the season he has 40 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and a now a fumble recovery. It is clear Ravens DC Doc Martindale likes Clark in blitz packages as he ranks fifth among safeties in pass rush per PFF.
Ravens safety Chuck Clark: "We're happy because we got the win. But I think overall as the team, the feeling from that game was we should have won it a different way. That was a team we definitely feel we could have blown out, or at least, not have it as interesting at the end."— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) October 19, 2020
Terrell recorded two total tackles in their 38-7 rout against the Browns this past Sunday. He has 23 total tackles on the year including a sack.
Tremaine was back on track this week, recording 12 total tackles in their loss against arguably the best offense in the NFL. He has 41 total tackles on the year.
Kyle recorded four total tackles in the Bears win against the Panthers, but that stats don’t do his importance justice. He made a great touchdown saving tackle late in the second quarter. He’s also becoming notoriously the best LEGAL hitter in the league whether the refs like it or not.....
10. Kyle Fuller is just so damn good.— Erik Lambert (@ErikLambert1) October 19, 2020
His tackle of Bridgewater at the goal line was masterclass stuff.
How many "elite" corners in the game today make that play?
Aside from being a great player, he's also incredibly clutch. #Bears pic.twitter.com/7BWlQWRYwL
Every week, Kyle Fuller makes a legal hit that somehow scares officials into throwing a flag.— Patrick Finley (@patrickfinley) October 18, 2020
Kendall just has to keep taking the spotlight huh? He recorded another interception this week, putting him at four on the season which is tied for first in the NFL. DISCLAIMER: He missed two weeks and is tied for first. No one is throwing it Kendall’s way either, he is the fourth ranked CB per PFF grades through six weeks.
One play after a questionable PI penalty against him, Kendall Fuller makes an incredible pick. His fourth interception in just four games played. pic.twitter.com/WVnNns1pFT— All-Pro Reels (@allproreels) October 18, 2020
The Joey Slye Section
Joey was 3-4 this week in their loss to the bears, putting him at 16-18 on the season. He is money from 20-39 yards with a perfect 13-13. and only misses are a 49 yarder and a 55 yarder so far. I’d say he’s….’kicking’ butt!
Bonus Section: Coaching Special!
Former Hokie and Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians made a statement win over the Packers, handing them their first loss on the season. Tampa put up a wild second quarter scoring 28 straight points after being down 10-0 after the first quarter. They added 10 more in the third and closed the game at 38-10 putting the Bucs at 4-2 on the season. Way to go coach!
Tyrod Taylor – Out indefinitely with a punctured lung
Wyatt Teller – Listed as ‘day to day’ with a strained calf (pssst....he's still the number one rated guard in the NFL)
