NC State NFL Preseason Week 1 Report: 8/11/19

Published

on

The 1st Week of the 2019 NFL Preseason has wrapped up, and quite a few former NC State players were in action on Friday and Saturday.

If you missed our report from Thursday night, check it out here.

Running Back Jaylen Samuels looked like the ghost of Le’Veon Bell on Friday night in the Steelers 30-28 victory over the Bucs.

Samuels finished with 2 carries for 22 yards, and 1 reception for 9 yards.

Quarterback Ryan Finley was 13-18 for 109 yards, with 1 touchdown and 1 interception (QB Rating: 82.9) in the Bengals 38-17 loss to the Chiefs. On his scoring drive, he was 12 of 13 for 100 yards. Finley is fighting to be Andy Dalton’s backup. After a rough go of it when he arrived in Cincinnati, this was a good step in that direction. He’s been primarily leading the 2nd team offense as of late.

Linebacker Germaine Pratt had 2 tackles in the Bengals 38-17 loss to the Chiefs.

Quarterback Mike Glennon was 17 of 25 for 200 yards with 2 interceptions (0 touchdowns/QB Rating: 58.8) in the Raiders 14-3 victory over the Rams.

Punter A.J. Cole had 4 punts that went for an average of 43 yards, pinning 2 of them down inside the 20-yard line (Long: 49 yards) in the Raiders 14-3 victory over the Rams

Defensive End Kentavius Street had 4 tackles and 2 tackles for loss in the 49ers 17-9 victory over the Cowboys.

Cornerback Dontae Johnson had one pass deflection in the 49ers 17-9 victory over the Cowboys.

Published

on

Week 3 of the 2019 NFL Preseason kicked off last night, and quite a few former NC State football players were in action.

Quarterback Ryan Finley was sharp once again, completing 14 of his 20 pass attempts for 155 yards in the Bengals 25-23 loss to the Giants (92.7 QB Rating). Heading into Week 3 of the 2019 NFL Preseason, legend Kurt Warner believed that Finley was the best rookie quarterback thus far.

Wide Receiver Jakobi Meyers probably caught some grief after the game for his holding penalty and going 0-3 on attempts from Tom Brady, but he still proved to be one of the most productive receivers in the 2019 NFL preseason last night. Meyers had 7 receptions for 74 yards (12 targets) in the Patriots 10-3 victory over the Panthers. He is currently leading the NFL this preaseason in receiving yards (225) and receptions (19).

Wide Receiver Kelvin Harmon had 2 receptions for 37 yards on 3 targets in the Redskins 19-7 victory over the Falcons.

Linebacker Germaine Pratt had 1 tackle, 0.5 sacks and 1 QB hit in the Bengals 25-23 loss to the Giants.
