Week 8 of the 2018 NFL season brought a pair of firsts for two Utah ties — a season first for former BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy and a career first for former Utah wide receiver Tim Patrick.

Van Noy, starting at linebacker for New England, forced a fumble on a strip sack in the third quarter when he hit Buffalo quarterback Derek Anderson from behind and knocked the ball loose, and teammate Patrick Chung recovered the ball. That set up a Patriots field goal that extended their lead to 12-6 in an eventual 25-6 New England win Monday night.

Then, with just under two minutes to play, Van Noy added a second sack, this one for a 10-yard loss that knocked Anderson out of the game.

The two sacks were Van Noy’s first sacks of the season.

Van Noy also had a team-high eight tackles, including seven solo stops, and two quarterback hurries while playing all 64 defensive snaps for the Patriots and eight on special teams.

Patrick, meanwhile, caught a 24-yard touchdown pass from Denver quarterback Case Keenum with five seconds remaining in the first half on third-and-10 to cut Kansas City’s lead to 16-14 in the Chiefs’ 30-23 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

It’s the first touchdown of the second-year pro’s career.

He added a 13-yard carry for a first down on the final play of the first quarter while playing 19 offensive snaps and 19 on special teams.

Patrick had a touchdown reception earlier this season wiped out by penalty, but this time it stuck. He has three catches for 56 yards on the year.
