Mountaineers in the NFL: Week 5

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - A couple different Mountaineers shined this past week in the NFL.

Offensive Mountaineer of Week: Wendell Smallwood (RB, PHI)

Smallwood played well Sunday as he had three rushes for 27 yards and three receptions for 44 yards including a crucial third quarter touchdown catch from Carson Wentz out of the backfield.

Defensive Mountaineer of Week: Najee Goode (LB, IND)

Goode had a career high game on Thursday, as he had seven combined tackles as well as his first interception of the year and a pass deflection. A big game for the seven-year veteran.

Biggest Surprise: Daryl Worley (CB, OAK)

Worley coming off a four-game suspension saw his first action of 2018 in Week 4. He had a major impact for the Raiders on Sunday, as he recorded 8 combined tackles and 2 tackles for loss.
