Former Maryland football players fared well in Week 3 of the NFL season. Most notably, Green Bay Packers safety Darnell Savage picked up his first career interception and Carolina Panthers wide receiver DJ Moore caught his first touchdown of the season.

In the MLB, Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe was activated from the injured list and is picking up where he left off, helping the team secure a playoff spot. The Terp-filled WNBA Finals are tipping off, and the Maryland-led Whipsnakes took home the Premier Lacrosse League championship.

Lila Bromberg, Jordan Gold and I recap Week 3 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 4.

We also dive into baseball action and talk about former Maryland baseball players’ success in the MLB, as well as the WNBA Finals and the PLL Championship. Here we talk about:

  • Is Darnell Savage on pace to be the Defensive Rookie of the Year?
  • What is the reason for Stefon Diggs’ low production?
  • Who will have the best performance in Week 4?
  • Which former Terps are making a push for October?
  • Which former Terps are in the WNBA Finals?
  • How did Terps decide the first ever PLL Championship?

Week 4 of the NFL season gets underway Thursday night. Darnell Savage and the Packers face off against the Philadelphia Eagles. The WNBA Finals between the Washington Mystics and the Connecticut Suns tips off on Sunday.
