Former Vols who played significantly
Trey Smith – OL – Kansas City Chiefs
Once again, Trey Smith played every offensive snap. It wasn’t his fault, but the Kansas City Chiefs didn’t run the ball well, as Patrick Mahomes threw it over 60 times and was sacked four times. Still, Smith did his part to protect Mahomes as the Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans 20-17.
Alvin Kamara – RB – New Orleans Saints

Alontae Taylor – DB – New Orleans Saints
On the other side of the Saints’ loss to the Ravens, Alontae Taylor played 88 percent of the defensive snaps. He finised with a pass deflection and five tackles, three of which were solo.
