Week 4 of the NFL season was a quiet one for former Maryland football players. The Panthers and Redskins were on bye this week, meaning WR DJ Moore, WR Torrey Smith, LB Jermaine Carter Jr. and TE Vernon Davis did not play.
With the exception of Steelers safety Sean Davis and Vikings WR Stefon Diggs, the rest of the Terps largely struggled this week. Here’s how everyone in action fared:
- Diggs hauled in 11 catches (a season-high) for 123 yards but did not score a touchdown in Minnesota’s 38-31 loss to the Rams.
- Davis finished with six tackles (three solo) for the second consecutive week, extending his solid start. Teammate and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey was less fortunate, as he left Sunday night’s 26-14 loss in the first half with an ankle injury.
- Patriots cornerback JC Jackson did not play much, but he made his time count, snagging an interception in the Pats’ 38-7 demolition of the Dolphins.
- Despite picking up a sack, Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue continued his slow start, not doing much else in Sunday’s victory over the Jets. Teams are focusing more on slowing Ngakoue down, and he’ll have to adjust as the season continues.
- Seahawks DE Quinton Jefferson finished with no tackles in Seattle’s win over Arizona.
- The Denver Broncos activated DT Darius Kilgo this week, but he didn’t record any stats Monday night against the Chiefs.
After another underwhelming week, the NFL Terps look to rebound in Week 5.
