‘Noles In The Pros: Week 2 – Sports Illustrated

Publish date:Sep 21, 2021DBU was in full force in week two of the NFL regular season.

‘Noles in the Pros should be fun to follow in 2021 as some of the best players in the league come from Florida State. Every week we’ll run down their performance.

Florida State has 33 players in the league this season, which is one of the lowest numbers they’ve had in some time. Despite the low numbers, some of the very best players in the league come from FSU, and many of those players are primed for a huge season.

Not every former Seminole registered stats this week. However, a few of the players had huge games this weekend. Here’s the rundown. 

Jalen Ramsey, Los Angeles Rams

Three tackles and the game-sealing interception on a great play on the sideline. He had the lowest passer rating when targeted this week at 25.6.

Derwin James, Los Angeles Chargers

Seven tackles and half a sack

Asante Samuel Jr, Los Angeles Chargers

Four tackles, his first career interception, and another great game as he had the second-lowest passer rating when targeted at 40.2.

Dalvin had a good day on the ground with 22 carries for 131 yards (6 ypc), and he had 2 catches for 17 yards.
