Tigers in the NFL Week 12: Brad Smith seizes the spotlight on Thanksgiving

In a Thanksgiving game many fans could not watch on cable, Brad Smith scurried away from the Cincinatti Bengals for two touchdowns, both spanning more than half the field.

Two plays into the third quarter, Smith ran the ball 53 yards untouched by a Bengals’ rush defense ranked 23rd in the NFL. 15 football minutes later, he took a kickoff 89 yards to pay dirt.

The former QB also caught one Mark Sanchez pass on the day. The grab extends his catch streak to three games, beginning the very week this blog decided to modify his stat line to reflect rushing statistics only. Before Week 10, he had one catch all season.

Big 12 products Sam Bradford and Danario Alexander have begun to develop a quality working relationship for the St. Louis Rams. In a victory over Denver, Bradford connected with Alexander 4 times for 95 yards, the most impressive of them coming on a 45 yard sideline strike over an Oklahoma State product, cornerback Perrish Cox.

Atlanta Falcons’ linebacker Sean Weatherspoon returned from a nagging knee injury and looked sharp enough on Sunday.
