Week 3 of the NFL season saw De’Vondre Campbell shine for the Green Bay Packers and state his case as one of the best linebackers in the NFL once again. Daniel Faalele made his first NFL start and 10 other former Gophers saw game action. Here is a look ahead to Week 4 and a potential chance for fans in Minneapolis to see a pair of former Gophers.
Week 3 vs Green Bay Packers
Week 4 vs Kansas City Chiefs (SNF)
Antoine Winfield Jr—CB
Winfield played all 62 defensive snaps nd recorded six solo tackles in the close loss to Green Bay.
Ko Kieft saw 11 offensive snaps and another 14 on special teams for the Bucs in their loss. He made his first special teams tackle on the season.
The Bucs are supposed to host KC on Sunday night football this week but die to Hurricane Ian making landfall just south of Tampa on Wednesday there are strong rumors that game will be moved, and the most likely option according to many is US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. So it could be a quick homecoming for AWJ and Ko.
Week 3 @ Chicago Bears
Week 4 vs Los Angeles Chargers
Murray played 15 snaps on special teams but didn’t see a single defensive snap in the crushing loss to the Bears on a late Davis Mills interception. He recorded a pair of tackles in coverage.
Johnson was inactive for the third week in a row for Houston.
Blake Cashman- LB
Cashman played 15 defensive snaps and 21 special teams snaps for the Texans, but did not record a stat.
Week 3 @ New England Patriots
Week 4 vs Buffalo Bills
Bateman played 37 snaps on offense for Baltimore and was relatively held in check by the Patriots. He caught two passes for 59 yards on four targets.
Faalele started his first NFL game at left tackle on Sunday as an injury replacement against the Patriots and payed 54 snaps. He got off to a bit of a rough start allowing a sack to Deatrich Wise Jr. on each of his first two series but as the game went on he settled in and really seemed to improve. That was noticed by his head coach.

If he gets the start again next weekend he gets to try and block Von Miller. Good luck Big Dan!

Campbell played all 65 defensive snaps for Green Bay in their win at Tampa Bay and recorded a team leading 14 tackles, 8 of them solo, one for a loss. He also had one pass defense, a great play on a two-point conversion late in the game that kept the Packers in the lead and avoided OT.
