Minnesota Football: Gophers in the NFL Week 6

First Career pick for BSJ at the exact right time

NFL: Washington Commanders at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Once again it was the former Gopher defenders leading the way in Week 6. Blake Cashman had a career day with 15 tackles helping Houston to a huge win, while Benjamin St. Just got his first career NFL interception late in the game to help the Commanders to a big win. Big plays at the right time. Nice.
