NFL Preseason Week Two: Pair of Terps Record First Touchdowns, One Rookie Shines

Several rookies shine while the vets get back into the swing of things with the season approaching. Breaking down how former Terps fared this week in preseason.

  • Chiefs LB Jermaine Carter: Finished with four tackles, three being for a loss, in the Chiefs’ 24-14 win over the Commanders. He was tied for second on the team in tackles.
  • Chiefs RB Tayon Fleet-Davis: Had five carries for five yards and a touchdown for the Chiefs. His touchdown came on sort of a broken play, where he and quarterback Dustin Crum ran into each other.
  • Colts DE Byron Cowart: Finished with one tackle in the Colts’ 27-26 loss to the Detriot Lions.
  • Colts SAF Nick Cross: Finished with two tackles, both solo, and a pass defended for the Colts. Cross has had a great training camp so far and could be a major in the Colts defense this year.

  • Colts DE Yannick Ngakoue: The Colts again rested their starters last week and Ngakoue didn’t see the field.
  • Bills WR Stefon Diggs: Diggs was targeted twice, catching both passes for 33 yards in the Bills’ 42-15 win over the Broncos. Diggs, along with the rest of the Bills starters, was pulled after one series.
  • Rams RB Jake Funk: Funk had one carry for zero yards and one catch for -1 yards in the Rams 24-20 loss to the Houston Texans. The former Maryland running back did shine on special teams earlier in the week, though.

  • Steelers RB Anthony McFarland: Finished with two carries for one yard and one catch for seven yards in the Steelers’ 16-15 win over the Jaguars.

  • Jets RB Ty Johnson: Finished with three carries for eight yards and one catch for three yards in the Jets’ 24-16 win over the Falcons. This was Johnson’s first game played in the preseason after missing last week with an injury.
  • Bengals LB Keandre Jones: Jones finished with four tackles, three being solo, in the Bengals’ 25-22 loss to the Giants. He also recovered a fumble on special teams in the loss.

  • Titans TE Chig Okonkwo: Caught one pass on two targets for six yards and one touchdown in the Titans’ 13-3 win over the Bucs. Chig scored the only touchdown of the game.
