Smith Shows Big Play Ability In Roughriders' Win

     Some players just flat out have a knack for big plays. One of the Syracuse Pros that we follow shows that big play ability just about every week. Taj Smith has had a fine season for the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders. He has had catches of 56 yards and 74 yards this year. His 14.7 yards per catch is one of the best on the team. He has 30 catches for 441 yards and 2 touchdowns up to this point in the season. His big play ability set the Roughriders on fire in yesterday's game.

     After the Riders kicked a field goal, they forced the Toronto Argonauts to punt. The Riders took the field for their second possession and that is where Smith came in. Quarterback Darian Durant hit Smith in stride on the sideline for a 56-yard catch. This left the ball at the Argonauts' 3 yard line. Backup quarterback Drew Willy later scored on the possession to make the score 10-0. The Riders never let up winning 36-10. Smith ended the game with 4 catches for 79 yards.

     The Roughriders have a 3-game winning streak, which brings their record to 8-6 on the season. They face Edmonton this Saturday.
