Tuesday Tidbits: Week 3

     Week 3 of the regular season has passed and we wanted to take a minute to feature one of the former Syracuse players making noise in the Canadian Football League. Taj Smith's final year in Syracuse was a fine one. In the 2007 season he had 44 catches for 822 yards and 5 touchdowns. He now finds himself in the Canadian Football League playing for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Here is what Taj Smith and the rest of  the Syracuse Pros in the NFL did this week:

Saskatchewan 30 Calgary 25
-Quarterback Darian Durant found Taj Smith for a beautiful 30-yard touchdown strike in what was a huge 3rd quarter for the Roughriders. Smith ended the game with 3 catches for 55 yards.

Dallas 16 Tampa Bay 10
-In a game dominated by the defenses, wide receiver Mike Williams had 2 catches for 33 yards.

Jacksonville 22 Indianapolis 17
Blaine Gabbert threw an 80 yard touchdown strike to give the Jags the win. For the Colts, Dwight Freeney (injury) and Delone Carter (coach's decision) were both inactive.

Tennessee 44 Detroit 41
-An impressive offensive output by both teams, but the Titans had just a bit more. Linebacker Doug Hogue played for the Lions, but did not record a tackle.

Atlanta 27 San Diego 3
-Atlanta dominated the undefeated Chargers. Running back Curtis Brinkley had his playing time cut down with the return of Ryan Matthews. Brinkley ended the day with 1 carry for 5 yards and 2 catches for 12 yards.

Chicago 23 St. Louis 6
-Quinn Ojinnaka started his second game at guard for the Rams.

Baltimore 31 New England 30
In a matchup of the Jones' brothers, the Ravens were able to squeeze by with a one-point victory. Chandler Jones ended the day with 2 tackles for the Patriots. Brother Arthur Jones played for the Ravens, but did not record a tackle. Jameel McClain had 2 tackles for the Ravens. Steve Gregory had 4 tackles for New England. Gregory also recorded an interception of Joe Flacco and returned it 36 yards to give the Patriots great field position.
