WVUPros NFL Recap Week 10: Will Clarke is “coming into his own”

With all the injuries and with Karl Joseph and Bruce Irvin on a bye, Week 10 was a quiet week for WVUPros in the NFL. That should change in the upcoming weeks as both Kevin White and Charles Sims hope to return from injured reserve and the playoff race heats up.

Here’s what transpired over the weekend.

Eagles 24 vs. Falcons 15

Wendell Smallwood saw a good chunk of action in the Eagles win. Smallwood carried the ball 13 times for 70 yards, good for a solid 5.4 ypc average. Najee Goode chipped in with one tackle on the day. What is a good sign for Smallwood is that he is starting to get carries even though Darren Sproles and Ryan Matthews are healthy.

Next week Philadelphia travels to Seattle to take on the Seahawks at 4:25 pm EST.

Buccaneers 36 vs. Bears 10

Tampa Bay blew out the Bears at home Sunday. Keith Tandy had one tackle and was credited with one pass defended in the victory.

Next week Tampa will go on the road to play the always tough Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. This one is scheduled for 1pm EST on Sunday.

Chiefs 20 vs. Panthers 17

Carolina lost a tough one to the Chiefs Sunday. Daryl Worley had another strong game with 7 tackles and 4 passes defended. Worley has improved tremendously over the past few games.

Look for more improvement from Worley next week as the Panthers host the Saints on Thursday night at 8:25 pm EST.

Rams 9 vs. Jets  6

This offensively challenged game was tough to watch, but a win is a win for the Rams. Tavon Austin had a quiet day and was only targeted seven times. You could say he did what he could with the touches he did get. Austin had two grabs for 19 yards and two rushes for 10 yards.

The Rams return home to L.A. to face Miami Sunday at 4:05 EST.

Redskins 26 vs. Vikings 20

The upstart Redskins took down the Vikings Sunday. Terence Garvin was active but did not register any stats.

The Redskins will try to continue their winning ways against the Packers Sunday night (8:30 pm EST).

Giants 21 vs. Bengals 20

The Giants edged the Bengals in the Monday night game. Will Clarke had two tackles for the Bengals and was complimented for “coming into his own” this season by announcer Jon Gruden. Adam Jones drew the difficult assignment of covering Odell Beckham and finished the night with 3 tackles.

The Bengals will host the Bills next week in a game set for 1pm EST.


Bruce Irvin and Karl Joseph return to action next Monday night at home against the Texans (8:30 pm EST).
