Sorry for the delay in these final two weeks. As you know, it's a busy time of the year, but here we go with the wrap-up to the regular season.
As with last year, no offensive lineman are mentioned because it's just too hard to really tell how they performed. The Hokies in the NFL are below in alphabetical order:
Xavier Adibi, LB Tennessee Titans
WEEK 16: Adibi did not accumulate any stats.
WEEK 17: Adibi tallied two tackles on the day, both solo, in the Titans win over the Jaguars.
COMBINED STATS: 2 TAK, 2 SOLO
Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers
WEEK 16: Boykin did not pull any passes, but did earn a solo tackle as the Packers walloped the Titans.
WEEK 17: Boykin pulled in one pass for seven yards, but was injured on the play and left the game (ankle injury).
COMBINED STATS: REC, 7 YDS; TAK, SOLO
Roc Carmichael, CB Houston Texans
WEEK 16: Carmichael tallied a pair of solo tackles in the Texans' Week 16 loss to the Vikings.
WEEK 17: Carmichael earned a solo tackle in the loss to the Colts.
COMBINED STATS: 3 TAK, 3 SOLO
Kam Chancellor, SS Seattle Seahawks
WEEK 16: Chancellor turned in one heck of a performance as the Seahawks rolled the 49ers. Kam earned five total tackles with two as solo efforts. Of note though, Chancellor forced a fumble by Frank Gore and later recovered a Mario Manningham fumble. Chancellor also delivered one of the most devastating, yet clean, hits that you'll probably see this year. Vernon Davis was running up the sideline and jumped to catch a pass from from Colin Kaepernick. Chancellor caught him straight in the chest with his shoulder pad and jarred the ball loose, sending Davis to the ground. Davis left the game with a concussion and Chancellor was flagged for the hit (was not suspended). Here's a link to the hit.
WEEK 17: Chancellor tallied eight total tackles with four as solo tackles for the Seahawks in their win.
COMBINED STATS: 13 TAK, 6 SOLO, FORCE FUM, FUM REC
Darren Evans, RB Tennessee Titans
WEEK 16: Did not accumulate any stats.
WEEK 17: Did not accumulate any stats.
Brandon Flowers, CB Kansas City Chiefs
WEEK 16: Flowers turned in a solid performance in the Chiefs' loss to the Colts, tallying four total tackles, four as solo efforts, sacked Andrew Luck and earned another TFL. Flowers also broke up a pass.
WEEK 17: Flowers earned three tackles, one as a solo effort, broke up two passes and recovered a fumble by the Broncos' Ronnie Hillman. Pretty decent outing.
COMBINED STATS: 7 TAK, 5 SOLO, 2 TFL, 3 PD, SACK, FUM REC
Shayne Graham, K Houston Texans
WEEK 16: Graham was two of two on the day with field goals of 51 and 33 yards, scoring the only points of the game for the Texans.
