LARAMIE -- A pair of Jacksonville defenders had their best outing of the early season across the pond and that gunslinger in Western New York is firing on all cylinders since an opening-night hiccup in the Big Apple.

Check out those performances from the active Cowpokes right here:

Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills, Quarterback  

Former Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen tossed four touchdown passes Sunday in a 48-20 dismantling of division rival Miami. He had just four incompletions on the afternoon while throwing for a season-high 320 yards. Allen also added a rushing touchdown in the rout. Over his last three games, the Bills' signal caller has completed 72-of-94 throws for 812 yards. He's added eight touchdowns through the air and two more on the ground.

Carl Granderson, New Orleans Saints, Defensive end 

Fifth-year edge rusher Carl Granderson capped his Sunday with four tackles, including half a tackle for loss, in a 26-9 home loss to Tampa Bay. The Sacramento, Calif., product now has 13 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble for the 2-2 Saints.

Logan Wilson, Cincinnati Bengals, Linebacker  

While the Bengals (1-3) have become known for slow starts, Logan Wilson has not. The former Wyoming linebacker from Casper tallied four tackles, including three solo stops, in a 27-3 setback at Tennessee. Wilson now has 26 tackles, a pair of stuffs and two interceptions.

Tashaun Gipson, San Francisco 49ers, Safety 

The ageless Tashaun Gipson registered five tackles out of the San Francisco secondary in Sunday's dominating 35-16 victory over visiting Arizona. The 12th-year safety from Dallas now has 15 tackles through four games.

Marcus Epps, Las Vegas Raiders, Safety

Former Wyoming walk-on Marcus Epps finished with four tackles, including a half-a-stop for loss, in the Raiders 24-17 loss Sunday in Los Angeles. Epps now has 19 stops on the season during his first year in Sin City.

Andrew Wingard, Jacksonville Jaguars  

Andrew Wingard tallied a season-high two tackles Sunday in the Jaguars 23-7 victory over the Falcons inside London's Wembley Stadium. The former UW safety now has four tackles on the year.

Mike Purcell, Denver Broncos 

The 6-foot-3, 328-pound Mike Purcell was placed on the inactive list during the Broncos first win of the season Sunday in Chicago. Denver rallied from 21 down in the second half to knock off the Bears, 31-28.

Chad Muma, Jacksonville Jaguars  

Devin Lloyd out, Chad Muma in. Jacksonville's starting middle linebacker will reportedly miss two games after undergoing hand surgery, cracking the door for the former UW standout. Muma took full advantage of the opportunity Sunday, racking up a season-high seven tackles in a 23-7 victory over the Falcons in London. Muma also broke up two passes in the win.

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
