It’s an interesting anecdote coming out of the upcoming Sunday Night Football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Kansas City Chiefs — one that brings two former teammates together in Jason Worilds of the Steelers and Brandon Flowers of the Chiefs. Both went to Virginia Tech, and Worilds says that Flowers is only doing at the NFL level what he was already doing against collegiate opponents.
“I know Brandon well,” he told the Beaver County Times. “We played together at Virginia Tech for two years. He’s an exceptional player, probably one of the most under-rated corners in the league. In college, he used to line up on the other teams best receiver week in and week out and make him null and void.”
So far this season, Flowers has already earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week once. He has 42 tackles and 4 interceptions so far in 2011, including one for a touchdown. He also has 15 passes defended.
