Outside of former Missouri QB Brad Smith’s passing touchdown and strong safety William Moore’s interception, most former Tigers struggled on Sunday.
Missouri football fans who tuned into the Jets-Bills game Sunday may have felt a touch of nostalgia as Brad Smith, now a wide receiver for New York, lined up behind center in the wildcat formation from the Buffalo three yard line. The receiver rolled out to his right and hit TE Dustin Keller in the back of the endzone to put the Jets up 24-7 after the extra point conversion.
Receiver Jeremy Maclin and and Eagles quarterback Michael Vick had worked extremely well together, and one could argue Vick’s rib injury manifested itself in Maclin’s poor statistical showing.
Justin Gage had the most productive receiving day of the three, reeling in two catches for 30 yards and no touchdowns from the wide receiver slot. Brad Smith continues to have a forgettable season buried in the New York Jet’s receiving corps.
Safety William Moore had the only solid performance on the week. He picked off 49ers QB Alex Smith in the third quarter.
The Falcons tried to downplay former Missouri linebacker Sean Weatherspoon’s injury, saying he left the game in week three with cramps. However, they deactivated him before this week’s game against San Francisco and he was seen wearing an ankle brace on the sidelines.
