Mountaineers in the NFL: Week 6

Get updated on former West Virginia football legends in week 6 of the NFL

In week six of the NFL, Geno Smith made his first start since week 13 of the 2017 season on the road in a hostile atmosphere on Sunday Night Football in Pittsburgh. Although the result ended in an overtime loss, the moment was not too big for the former Mountaineer, finishing the night, going 23-32 for 209 yards and a touchdown. 

David Long Jr. led the Titans in tackles for the second consecutive week with 14, and leads the team in total tackles on the season with 43, and Kyzir White picked off Ravens QB Lamar Jackson and ended his day with eight tackles, two pass deflections, a tackle for a loss and the INT.
