Mountaineers in the NFL: Week 9

WVU Football

Only one undefeated team remains in the NFL after the New England Patriots lost 37-20 to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night. Lamar Jackson led the way as he went 17/23 for 163 yards with a touchdown. He also rushed 16 times for 61 yards and two touchdowns.

The lone undefeated team is the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers narrowly escaped Arizona with a 28-25 victory over the Cardinals on Thursday. This is only the second time in franchise history that San Francisco is 8-0 as it started 10-0 in 1990.

The Pittsburgh Steelers keep climbing up as they have won three straight games and are sitting at 4-4. The Steelers defeated the Colts on Sunday, 26-24, after veteran kicker, Adam Vinatieri missed the game-winning field goal wide left.

The woes continued for Mitchell Trubisky and the Chicago Bears as they have now lost four straight. Trubisky threw 10/21 for 125 yards with no touchdowns in a 22-14 loss on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Along with the Bears, the rest of the NFC North struggled Sunday. The Packers, Lions, and Vikings all lost in their respective games. Green Bay lost its first game since September against the Los Angeles Chargers, 26-11.

The Vikings gave up two field goals in the final three minutes, including the game-winner by kicker Harrison Butker to lose 26-23 in Kansas City. Detroit fought hard in a back and forth game against the Raiders, but they were unable to extend their winning streak as they lost, 31-24.

Miami ended its chances of going 0-16 with a 26-18 defeat over the New York Jets. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick dominated, as he went 24/36 for 288 yards and three touchdowns to get the Dolphins in the win column for the first time in 2019.

Now, here are the former Mountaineers that had the biggest impacts for their teams over the weekend:
