1 day ago Tar Heels in the NFL: Week Two Roundup
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports It was a tough week for some of the notable Tar Heels in the NFL. The current North Carolina Tar Heels had a tough week this past week, falling to Wake Forest in disappointing fashion. Unfortunately, it was a tough week for some of the notable Tar Heels in the professional ranks as well. Mitchell Trubisky struggled in week one, as well as just about every former Tar Heel in the NFL. Week two did however have some brighter spots. One Tar Heel found the end zone, something he is becoming known for, and another had a nice performance following a teammate’s injury. But it was much of the same for a couple of the bigger named Tar Heels in the league. But why should we start with the negativity? Here are some of the good performances from the former Tar Heels in week two. The Good Eric Ebron led tight ends in touchdowns in the 2018 season and despite losing his starting quarterback, Andrew Luck, he is still finding the end zone in 2019. He only had three catches for 25 yards, but he did find the end zone in the Colts’ 19-17 win over their divisional rival Tennessee Titans. Ebron wasn’t the only former Tar Heel receiver to have a nice day. Mack Hollins worked in the absence of Desean Jackson who left the game early for the Philadelphia Eagles. Hollins was targeted eight times and caught five balls for 50 yards, the most catches in a game for his career. Hollins may not have a big role in the Eagles moving forward, but he did establish himself as a good backup option with this performance in primetime against Atlanta. As for his teammate, Zach Brown, he had seven tackles in the Sunday night game, which led the Eagles’ defense. It wasn’t quite good enough to deliver the win for them, but a good outing nonetheless for the 8th year pro. On the other side of the ball, it was a nice game for rookie linebacker Cole Holcomb, who is starting for the Washington Redskins. Holcomb racked up six tackles, bringing his two-week total to fourteen. Coming from a guy who was a walk-on at UNC, Holcomb has been proving people wrong at every step. He continues to impress in Washington, despite his team falling to the Dallas Cowboys by ten. The Bad Following a tough week one performance, Mitchell Trubisky and his Bears traveled to Denver to take on the Broncos and it was much of the same, if not worse for the third-year signal caller. Trubisky’s team won on a last second field goal from Eddie Piniero (ironic based on the Bears’ kicking struggles last season), but Trubisky was only 16-27 for 120 yards with no touchdowns. However, the good part is that Trubisky did lead the Bears on the game-winning drive, marching the Bears into field goal range with a great play where he scrambled around in the pocket, stepped up and made a good throw to leave one second (unlike the Tar Heels) on the clock. Trubisky really needs to get things going this season. He had two tough matchups to start this season, but things get easier with the Redskins up next. Giovani Bernard was given a nice contract extension this offseason and thought he would have a chance to show his worth in week two with Joe Mixon potentially sidelined, but Mixon ended up suiting up and it slowed Bernard down. Bernard toted the ball six times for six yards and had one catch for only seven yards. It was a tough day for the former Tar Heel standout, but even tougher for his Bengals who lost 41-17 to the San Francisco 49ers. Lastly, it was a tough day for Ryan Switzer, who will now have to endure a quarterback change in Pittsburgh. Mason Rudolph will take over for the injured Ben Roethlisberger for the rest of the year, leaving Switzer in limbo trying to get on the same page with a new QB. Switzer did catch one ball yesterday, but only had one total yard between the catch and the return game. The Others For the duo of Tar Heels on the Buccaneers, MJ Stewart and TJ Logan, they got a big win over the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte, who feature two Tar Heels in Tre Boston and Andre Smith. Boston, who plays the most out of the four, started and had four tackles in the Panthers secondary. Robert Quinn, who was suspended for the first two games for the Dallas Cowboys, will likely make his return in week three against the lowly Miami Dolphins. Quinn is coming off a year where he started all sixteen games for those Dolphins, before heading to the Cowboys this offseason. He is looking to bolster an already strong Cowboys defense, who are looking for a 3-0 start to the season.

1 day ago ACC Power Rankings: Week 4
Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images Clemson is pulling away from the pack. Last season, Syracuse only lost by four in Death Valley. When Clemson visited the Carrier Dome in 2017, the Orange pulled off the upset in a thriller. Could Syracuse pull off another shocker in front of their home crowd? Not at all. The 41-6 victory by the Tigers over the recently pesky Orange solidified their position atop the ACC power rankings. The tricky part now is sorting out the rest of the conference. 1. No. 1 Clemson - 3-0 (2-0) Trevor Lawrence threw two interceptions in Clemson’s nationally televised 41-6 victory on Saturday night. His total is now five on the season. This is the question: is it still early for Lawrence or will this be the expectation for this season? The Tigers will have to limit these turnovers if they are to win the last game in January. 2. No. 21 Virginia - 3-0 (2-0) With just over two and a half minutes left in the game, the Cavaliers punched in a rushing touchdown to take the lead over Florida State. A goal line stand sealed the 31-24 victory for Virginia. UVA has now won two of three against FSU. 3. Wake Forest - 3-0 (0-0) After lackluster defense in the first two games of the season, the Demon Deacons’ D made it happen against the Tar Heels. If Wake Forest can keep the momentum going into their league opener against Boston College, it could be a special year for the Deacs. 4. North Carolina - 2-1 (1-0) It was too little too late for the North Carolina Tar Heels on Friday night versus Wake Forest. The light at the end of the tunnel is that this team does not quit, as evidenced by another strong fourth quarter performance. UNC needs to avoid a slow start this week against App State or it may not be pretty. 5. Boston College - 2-1 (1-0) The Eagles were 18-point favorites at home against Kansas. The Jayhawks flipped the spread and beat BC by 24. There was only one THB writer that made that pick. Can Boston College regroup this week against Rutgers? 6. Virginia Tech - 2-1 (0-1) There were high expectations for this Hokies team, especially with the talent returning on defense. However, this has yet to come to fruition. VT was down 14-3 at the half against Furman, but dug deep in Blacksburg to secure a 24-17 win. 7. Louisville - 2-1 (0-0) After a hot start in the first half against Western Kentucky, the Cardinals eventually defeated the Hilltoppers 38-21 in a neutral site battle in Nashville. After a opening week loss to Notre Dame and easy victories against in-state directional schools, the true Louisville team will be seen this week in Tallahassee. 8. NC State - 2-1 (0-0) This team also faced in-state directional schools to start off with an easy 2-0 record. However, when facing their first P5 opponent and the oddsmakers making them a six-point favorite, the Wolfpack were waxed on the road 44-27 by West Virginia. 9. Duke - 2-1 (0-0) After a 42-3 rout versus Alabama in Week 1, the Blue Devils have taken care of business the past two weeks versus North Carolina A&T and Middle Tennessee State. This week’s game in Blacksburg will be an interesting test for Duke. 10. Miami - 1-2 (0-1) The Hurricanes tallied their first victory of the season against Bethune-Cookman. Miami should get back to .500 next week versus Central Michigan before the Hurricanes get back to their league schedule. 11. Pittsburgh - 1-2 (0-1) The Panthers had a chance to knock off No. 13 Penn State in State College, but could not tie the game late with a first-and-goal at the one-yard line. That is a missed opportunity that will haunt Pitt. 12. Syracuse - 1-2 (0-1) After high expectations coming into the season, the Orange have fallen fast. Syracuse has now been outscored 104-26 in the past two games. 13. Florida State - 1-2 (0-1) This is how bad it is at Florida State. As first reported by the Tallahassee Democrat: Four-year-old sells lemonade to help pay for FSU Willie Taggart’s $17 million buyout. 14. Georgia Tech - 1-2 (0-1) The Yellow Jackets lost to FCS The Citadel in overtime at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta. That’s all. Take a look at the ups and downs from the first four weeks of power rankings:
