NFL Season Week 2: Tuesday Tidbits

     Week 2 of the NFL season was a productive one for former Syracuse players. Players like Curtis Brinkley and Mike Williams made significant contributions to their teams. Here is your team by team recap of the week:

San Diego 38 Tennessee 10
-Curtis Brinkley touched the ball 22 times in the victory. He ran the ball 18 times for 43 yards and caught 4 passes for 23 yards.

New York Giants 41 Tampa Bay 34
-Receiver Mike Williams made 3 catches for 59 yards. The Bucs wideout made one of the best grabs of the year on a 41 yard bomb from Josh Freeman for a score. Williams dropped one pass in crunchtime that would have put the Bucs in the red zone. The play was initially ruled a catch and after further review it was determined incomplete.

Indianapolis 23 Minnesota 20
-Dwight Freeney was out with a high ankle sprain and Delone Carter was inactive for the second straight week.

Arizona 20 New England 18
-In what may have been the upset of the week the Cardinals pulled out a big win in Foxboro. It was not for a lack of effort by Chandler Jones though. Jones had another exceptional game for the Patriots forcing a fumble and ending the day with 5 tackles. Steve Gregory started at safety and recorded 5 tackles.

Philadelphia 24 Baltimore 23
-The Ravens had a chance to win, but the Eagles' defense held strong in the final minutes to take the win. The Baltimore defense played well, including Jameel McClain who had 5 tackles. Arthur Jones played, but did not record a tackle. Jones was involved in a pregame scuffle with DeSean Jackson after Jackson got in the face of a teammate.

St. Louis 31 Washington 28
-RG III could not propel the Redskins to a victory again this week. Quinn Ojinnaka was brought back by the Rams after being cut just before the regular season. He started at guard for the Rams.

San Francisco 27 Detroit 19
-Doug Hogue made a great special teams tackle for the Lions, but it was not enough as Detroit took the loss. Hogue ended the game with 2 tackles.
