His teammate, Alex Smith, has been heard from every week in 2013-14, it seems.
But the other former Utah Utes star on the Kansas City Chiefs (or Sean Smith) came up big on Sunday, returning an interception thrown by Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Jeff Tuel 100 yards for a touchdown.
It was also Sean Smith's first pick six of his career. Guess people might start talking about Sean now, eh?
So here are your big winners from Week 9 for Utahns In The NFL.
Sean Smith - Defensive Back - Kansas City Chiefs (Utah)
Sean Smith is the focus for this edition of Utahns In The NFL simply because he hasn't been all season long, and it's nice to get a story once in a while about someone on the Chiefs whose name is not Alex Smith.
That Sean is also a former Utah Utes star makes the story even better -- and what makes it even more compelling is that he was let go by the Miami Dolphins last year, much in the same manner as his fellow Ute Alex.
Like the 49ers for Alex, the Miami Dolphins simply didn't have a place at the proverbial table for Sean after six years there.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, who is quickly becoming a charity case for former University of Utah players and knows the state well having coached here, snapped him up like he did with Alex Smith and the rest, well, is history.
"I thought the guys blocking for him did a nice job of helping out," said Reid in a press release. "That’s a long haul, when you have people chasing after you."
Sean, who signed with Kansas City back in March on a three-year, $18 million deal has had 24 tackles and two interceptions this season for the Chiefs who are now 8-1 overall.
And of course, we can't not talk about the Chiefs without talking about the quarterback, also a former Ute.
Alex Smith - Quarterback - Kansas City Chiefs (Utah)
Alex Smith also had a good day, running his record -- and that of the Chiefs -- as a starter to 9-0, his best season ever as a professional.
It certainly wasn't his best game as a pro but it's one he'll take so long as it's a win. And so will Reid.
"I thought Alex (Smith) managed the game well and I know that’s a weird term, but he made some big-time throws," said Reid. "We had a couple, as the old saying goes, we didn’t get the fish in the boat on a couple of them, but we normally don’t drop balls, so we’ll keep working on that."
As Reid indicated, Smith did not have his best game as a Chief -- even if Smith threw for just 124 yards on 19-of-29 pass attempts.
But the Chiefs aren't the only NFL team having success with players from the state of Utah.
Bobby Wagner - Linebacker - Seattle Seahawks (Utah State)
Bobby Wagner, the pride of Utah State, is continuing to do great things up in Seattle for the Seahawks.
In Seattle's 27-24 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the former Aggie recorded six tackles and 1.5 sacks.
One sack was a highlight reel demolishing of Bucs rookie quarterback Mike Glennon -- who happened to matriculate with Seahawks star Russell Wilson at NC State.
Obviously there wasn't anything personal -- just business -- with Wagner's sack of Glennon, which appeared to have knocked the wind out of the former Wolfpack star.
For Wagner, who now has 51 tackles and one interception as well, these were his first sacks of the 2013-14 season.
For future Seahawks opponents that probably isn't good news. For Utah State fans, however, hearing that one of their Aggies is becoming one of the most formidable forces in the NFL is wonderful news indeed.
