By: Matthew Atkins | @mattkins21 | Sep 25, 2018
Another week in the NFL has come and gone, and Virginia Tech alumni have put together another round of solid performances in Week 3. Ten former Hokies saw playing time in NFL games this week, with some of them having career games. Here are the best performances from your favorite professional Hokies. Tremaine Edmunds (Buffalo Bills) The Bills’ first-round pick keeps getting better with every game he plays in the NFL. On the way to a 27-6 win over Minnesota, Edmunds racked up 10 tackles, including seven solo tackles. He also had one stuff in the game. His 10 tackles against the Vikings are the most he has put together in a single game this season after making seven tackles in each of his first two starts. Terrell Edmunds (Pittsburgh Steelers) Tremaine’s brother had a career game himself as the Steelers picked up their first win of the season, 30-27 over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Terrell made one tackle, had one pass defended and made his first career interception as the Steelers shined in primetime on Monday Night Football. Edmunds returned the interception 35 yards to set up the Steelers’ next drive. Antone Exum, Jr. (San Francisco 49ers) Exum put up his best numbers of the season on Sunday as well, although his team didn’t get the outcome they had hoped for. Exum made nine tackles in a 38-27 loss to Kansas City, including one sack on Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Exum also forced a fumble in the game, his first of the season. Kendall Fuller (Kansas City Chiefs) On the other side of the field on Sunday, Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller made five tackles, three of which were solo tackles, as he got the victory over a fellow Virginia Tech alum. Fuller now has 12 solo tackles on the season in three games for Kansas City. Other Hokies Chuck Clark, Brandon Facyson, Kyle Fuller, Tim Settle, Greg Stroman and Tyrod Taylor all saw playing time in Week 3 as well. Clark made two tackles as the Ravens won 27-14 against the Denver Broncos. He now has four combined tackles on the season, three of which are solo tackles. Kyle Fuller also made two solo tackles in his game on Sunday as the Chicago Bears won a close one, 16-14 against Arizona. Fuller now has six tackles on the season through three games for the Bears. Greg Stroman had two returns in the Redskins' 31-17 win over Green Bay this week. He returned one punt for nine yards and had a kickoff return for 18 yards. Tyrod Taylor struggled on Thursday night as Cleveland picked up its first win of the season, 21-17 over the New York Jets. Taylor was 4-for-14 on the night for just 19 yards. He also ran the ball four times for 22 yards in the game. Make sure to check back next week to see how the Hokies do in Week 4 of the NFL season. Three former Virginia Tech players will be featured in primetime as Chuck Clark and the Ravens take on Terrell Edmunds and the Steelers on Sunday night before Kendall Fuller leads the Chiefs in a division clash against the Broncos on Monday night.
