How to Watch Former BYU Players in the NFL, Week 1

Check out former Cougars in the NFL this weekend.

NFL: NFC Wild Card-Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL is underway and 8 former BYU players made 53-man rosters. Below is how to watch former Cougs in the NFL during week one kickoff.

Jamaal Williams — Packers @ Vikings, 1:00 ET, Fox

Jamaal is back with the Packers for his fourth NFL season. QB Aaron Rodgers named Jamaal as a “breakout player” to watch for the Packers this season. Jamaal is behind Aaron Jones on the depth chart, but he has carved out a role as a pass-catching back and elite pass blocker.

Taysom Hill — Saints vs Buccaneers, 4:25 ET, Fox

The NFL’s Swiss Army knife is back for his fourth season with the Saints. Taysom is listed as the #2 QB on the Saints depth chart ahead of Jamies Winston and is expected to line up once again all over the field at different positions. If Drew Brees gets injured again, it will be interesting to see if Taysom indeed is the Saints starting QB.

Fred Warner — 49ers vs Cardinals, 4:25 ET, Fox

Fred has become one of the NFL’s top linebackers and is due for a Pro Bowl season. The 49ers have one of the top defenses in the NFL and Fred is a key cog in that.

Kyle Van Noy — Dolphins at Patriots, 1:00 ET, CBS

The two-time Super Bowl champion enters his eighth NFL season and first with the Dolphins after signing a new contract. Van Noy will open against the Patriots, where he spent the five previous seasons.

Sione Takitaki — Browns at Ravens, 1:00 ET, CBS

Takitaki enters his second NFL season as a starter at outside linebacker for the Browns. He’ll have a tough test trying to slow down reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson.

Harvey Langi — Jets at Bills, 1:00 ET, CBS

Langi made the Jets 53-man roster as is one of the inside linebacker backups in the Jets 3-4 scheme. Brothers Corbin and Bronson Kaufusi are members of the Jets practice squad.

Michael Davis — Chargers at Bengals, 4:05 ET, CBS

Davis is a backup corner for the Chargers on the official depth chart. He is entering his fourth NFL season.

Daniel Sorensen played Thursday for the Kansas City Chiefs in their win over the Houston Texans.
