Tigers in the NFL


Justin Smith, #94 – San Francisco 49ers @ Houston Texans

                The defensive tackle totaled 10 tackles – 8 of which were solo.  Smith has 21 tackles and one sack this season. The 49ers are second in the NFC West.

Jeremy Maclin, #18 – Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington Redskins

                The first round pick out of Missouri had five receptions for 53 yards last night against the Redskins. Maclin is averaging 13.7 yards a game. Philadelphia defeated Washington 27-17 and is second in the NFC East. Teammate DeSean Jackson credited Maclin for blocking for him.

Ziggy Hood, #96 – Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Minnesota Vikings

                The Pittsburgh Steelers handed the Minnesota Vikings their first loss of the season on Sunday. The defense dominated, sacking quarterback Brett Favre three times. But what made the difference in the game were Pittsburgh’s two defensive touchdowns in the last seven minutes.

C.J. Mosley, #69 – Cleveland Browns vs. Green Bay Packers

                Defensive tackle C.J. Mosley recorded one tackle in the game against the Packers. It’s his 11th this season.
