NFL – Mountaineer Thanksgiving

Lookin goodHappy Thanksgiving!

Three NFL games set for this holiday, and the first two should have some Mountaineer appearances.

First up, the day’s traditional host, Detroit, welcomes Green Bay to its home for dinner. Serving up some punch will be Sam Martin, the most profiled kicker in the league.

“It’s crazy, man,” said Martin, a former soccer standout who became a first-team Football Championship Series All-American as a senior. “When we’re in stretch lines in practice sometimes, I have those moments where I’m like, ‘Wow.’ If I don’t really think about it, I don’t realize it.”

As a rookie, Martin is fourth in the NFL, averaging 48.4 yards, and fifth in net punting at 41.7 yards.

“He’s not by any means a finished product, and he’ll be the first one to tell you that,” special teams coordinator John Bonamego said.

Following the appetizer, Oakland rambles in to Dallas. App State great turned Raider Jason Hunter is likely out due to injury (he was inactive last Sunday and hasn’t practiced all week).

But since the Cowboys are at home, expect more than one great shot of Carisa Rose working the sidelines.
