Here are a couple #ProHog standouts from Sunday, as well as a few notes from the weekend:
Flowers continues to be a force along the Patriot defensive line. The third-year end recorded six tackles Sunday, to go along with one sack, one tackle for loss and two quarterback hits.
Through three games, Flowers has 13 tackles to lead all Patriot defensive linemen, as well as a team-high three sacks and is tied with fellow #ProHog Deatrich Wise, Jr. with three tackles for loss. Flowers and Wise have combined for five of the Patriots six total sacks this season.
Trey Flowers has three sacks through three games this season, and if including playoffs, 12.5 sacks in his last 15 games.

Despite the Ravens falling to the Jacksonville Jaguars 44-7 in London, Alex Collins had a big day with his new team. Last week, Collins was signed to the Ravens’ active roster. This week, the second-year running back ran for a game and career-high 82 yards on nine carries to lead all Baltimore backs.
Through two games with the Ravens, Collins has tallied 124 yards on the ground, one shy of his 2016 regular season total with the Seahawks in 11 games of action.
19 of his 82 yards Sunday came on his season-long run…

Other #ProHog Notes
Ravens’ back-up quarterback Ryan Mallett came in late, once the game was out of reach, tossing a six-yard touchdown for Baltimore’s only score. Mallett finished 6-of-9 for 36 yards and one touchdown.
Vikings receiver Jarius Wright hauled in his first touchdown reception of the season, matching last season’s total, for his ninth career touchdown Sunday. Wright finished with two receptions for nine yards and one score. Last season, Wright did not catch a touchdown until the final regular season game against the Chicago Bears.
Third-year linebacker Martrell Spaight had a career day on Sunday. Spaight tallied a season-high nine tackles to finish second on the team and recorded one fumble recovery. In his last seven regular season games, dating back to last season, Spaight has recorded a combined 32 of his 39 career tackles, including 21 solo stops.
Rookie offensive lineman Dan Skipper signed to the Detroit Lions practice squad Monday, after being released by the Dallas Cowboys last Wednesday.
