The St. Louis Rams won the overtime coin toss in San Francisco, giving Oklahoma product Sam Bradford’s offense the chance to drive down the field and put the game away. MU’s own Justin Smith shattered their hopes with a drive ending sack inside the 27 yard line.
Smith leads the 49ers in sacks with five this season.
Jeremy Maclin and Michael Vick have been lethal together this year. With Vick on his way to a possible MVP nod, Maclin had another solid game. He had beautiful footwork on a touchdown catch falling into the end zone.
Chase Daniel’s former favorite target also notched a clutch grab and run on third down to keep a scoring drive alive during the Eagles’ Monday night rout of Washington. For any fan who has yet to view the highlights, the recap is a must-see. Maclin’s touchdown pops up at about the 2:40 mark.
Of course, one week after adjusting the stat line to reflect Brad Smith’s wildcat rushing yardage as opposed to his previously nearly non-existent receiving totals, Smith finally caught another ball. The graphic has been adjusted accordingly
Smith gave the Cleveland Browns problems all day, behind center or otherwise. He cracked the highlight reel with this reverse for 16 yards.
The Jets would go on to win in overtime.
Chase Daniel’s Saints had a bye this week. Sean Weatherspoon and Danario Alexander remain sidelined by knee injuries.
