Former Maryland football players fared well in Week 6 of the NFL season. Most notably, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs had his best performance of the season.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver DJ Moore continued his success with another solid game without Cam Newton. Green Bay Packers safety Darnell Savage missed this week with an ankle injury, but it is not confirmed how long he will miss.
The Washington Mystics were crowned WNBA champions with a win in game 5. Kristi Toliver led the way for former Terps to win a championship. The NBA preseason is underway and Jake Layman is leading the way for former Terps. Kevin Huerter has “knee pain” and it is unsure if he will play in the preseason.
Lila Bromberg, Jordan Gold and I recap Week 6 of the NFL season and how former Terps performed. We give our opinions on which Maryland alum is standing out the most in the NFL, as well as who will have the best performance in Week 7. Then we discuss the start of the NBA season for former Terps.
We also dive into WNBA Finals action and talk about former Maryland women’s basketball players’ success in the league, including who was crowned a champion. Here’s what we discuss:
- What was the reason for Stefon Diggs’ break through game?
- Will Diggs consistently produce from now on?
- What has been the reason for DJ Moore’s success without Cam Newton?
- Is Moore better off with Kyle Allen or Cam Newton at quarterback?
- How important was it for Maryland women’s basketball to have alumni win the WNBA Finals?
- Which former Terps were crowned champions in the WNBA?
- Which former Terps stood out in the WNBA Finals?
- How is each former Terp in the NBA panning out so far in the preseason?
Week 7 of the NFL season gets underway Thursday night. On Sunday, Diggs’ Vikings will take on Ty Johnson’s Lions and Moore has a bye week. NBA preseason action continues with the regular season tipping off Oct. 22.
