Prokies: NFL Week 4
With the NFL season a quarter of the way through, let’s take a look at how the “Prokies” did in week 4 of the regular season.
Khalil Herbert Has Down Week in New York
The Bears couldn’t get any offense going when they visited the Meadowlands on Sunday, losing to the Giants 20-12. Herbert rushed for 77 yards on 19 attempts with 15 yards being his longest and averaging 4.1 yards per carry, his lowest YPC average on the season so far. Herbert so far this season has rushed for 317 yards in 52 carries and found the end zone three times, and has done a tremendous job in the backfield for Chicago. Recently, Herbert has stepped up in the absence of RB1 David Montgomery, who is out with an ankle injury sustained against Houston in week three.
Christian Darrisaw And Wyatt Teller Continue To Shine in The Trenches
Darrisaw (Vikings) and Teller (Browns) are some of the best offensive linemen in the NFL currently at the tackle and guard positions, respectively. The two have had stellar seasons so far up front, with Teller ranked 2nd out of all guards and Darrisaw 8th out of all tackles per Pro Football Focus, and are the highest ranked linemen on their teams. Darrisaw has yet to allow a sack this season or draw a penalty, while Teller has allowed one and been flagged for four. The Vikings went international, defeating New Orleans 28-25 in a thriller that came down to Saints's kicker Will Lutz double doinking what would've been the game-tying field goal with time expiring in the 4th quarter off the left upright and crossbar, while the Browns lost a heartbreaker in Atlanta to the Falcons 23-20.
Chuck Clark, Tremaine Edmunds Faced Off in Baltimore
A thrilling battle between Baltimore and Buffalo went down to the wire Sunday, and both Clark (Ravens) and Edmunds (Buffalo) contributed significantly in the hopes that their team would come out on top. Clark totaled six tackles - three joint, three solo - and Edmunds nine tackles, with two for a loss. The Bills mounted an incredible comeback, scoring 20 unanswered to come back against the Ravens, walking out of M&T Bank Stadium on top 23-20.
Here's a video of Edmunds making one of his tackles for a loss from a high end-zone angle:

Terrell Edmunds Enters Concussion Protocol After Hit vs Jets
Terrell Edmunds (Steelers) left the game in the second quarter after colliding head-to-head with Jets Running Back Michael Carter. The two met mid-air and Edmunds immediately went down and had to be helped by medical professionals. So far this season, Edmunds has racked up 13 total tackles and has been a key leader on the defensive side of the ball for the Steelers. Pittsburgh is hoping he will be back on the field soon. The Steelers lost, 24-20.
Joey Slye Knocks Through His First Field Goal of The Season Against Cowboys
Slye (Commanders) made the first field goal he’s attempted this season from 45 yards out as the Commanders fell to the Cowboys in Arlington 25-10. Kendall Fuller and Logan Thomas, also on the Commanders, had relatively quiet games, with Fuller making three tackles and Thomas catching 5 receptions for 19 yards.
