Texas A&M Football: Aggies in the NFL, Week 5 – Texas A&M

Texas A&M is well represented in the National Football League, with some of the most well-known players and coaches descending from the ranks of the maroon and white throughout the years.
In week 4 of the NFL schedule, numerous former Texas A&M standouts shined on the gridiron, including the regular names so far with Von Miller, Myles Garrett, Christian Kirk, Josh Reynolds, and Kenyon Green, and for a second straight week, Dallas Cowboys safety Donovan Wilson exploded on the scene against the Washington Commanders, recording 9 tackles, 8 solo tackles, and was a consistent force in the backfield providing multiple pressures against quarterback Carson Wentz.
Week 5 of the NFL season began on Thursday when the 1-2-1 Indianapolis Colts traveled to face the Russel Wilson-led Denver Broncos in one of the sloppiest offensives affairs in modern NFL history, where the Colts ended up escaping with a 12-9 overtime win, mostly due to Wilson late-game interception, and a complete miss on a slant to wide receiver KJ Hamler at the goal line which would have sealed the win for the Broncos.
