Tigers in the NFL Week 14: Fairly quiet performance across the board

Read this post at the Missourian’s TigerSports page

Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore picked up five tackles against the Carolina Panthers. Next to the rest of the MU alumni in the NFL, his stat line looks gaudy.

San Francisco defensive end Justin Smith, Mr. Consistency, had an impact with three tackles from his starting spot.

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Ziggy Hood did not log any meaningful statistics in week 14, but despite his lack of recorded tackles, the big man looks comfortable in the Steelers 3-4 defense and has been effective.

Outside of those three, the rest of the former Tigers had no real net impact on their respective games in week 14.

Although Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin had a catch for 11 yards, he also had a Michael Vick pass bounce off his hands and land in the arms of Dallas Cowboys linebacker Bradie James.

Justin Gage caught one for a short gain, but was mostly negligible in a Titans loss to the Colts.

New York Jets wide receiver Brad Smith flipped his paltry stat line from two yards on one rushing attempt in week 13, with a yard on two tries on Sunday.

St Louis Rams wide receiver Danario Alexander played a minimal role in the Rams offense against San Francisco. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo attributed the decrease in playing time to game flow. Danario did not crack the scoresheet.

Atlanta linebacker Sean Weatherspoon played sparingly at Carolina, only subbing in on third down as he slowly returns to form after the injury.
