Cats in the NFL Week Two Recap

The Packers fell behind early as the Falcons scored 24 first half points on their way to a 34-23 victory. Despite the loss Randall Cobb performed well in the National TV spotlight catching 6 balls for 60 yards. Cobb did injure his shoulder in the loss and is listed as day-to-day for this week. Lets hope this is a minor injury for the former Kentucky legend.

 

The Bucs scored 26 unanswered points in the 1st half against the Bears on their way to a 29-7 victory. Danny Trevathan recorded 4 tackles in a loss that the Bears would like to put in their rear-view. Chicago will have to rebound quickly as they host the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday.

The Steelers dominated the Vikings as Sam Bradford sat out with a knee injury. Bradford’s absence did not stop Bud Dupree from getting to the quarterback as the former first round pick recorded 2 tackles and 1 sack in the Steelers 26-7 victory. An encouraging performance from Dupree in his first action of the season, he sat out the Steelers opening game with a shoulder injury.

Za’Darius Smith suffered a knee sprain in the Ravens opening win against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Kentucky product was not able to play in Sunday’s game against the Browns. The Ravens have not released a timetable for his return. Even without Smith the Ravens defense continued to show why they are one of the league’s best as they forced 5 turnovers in the team’s 24-10 victory. The Titans got back on track this week after losing their opener, Wesley Woodyard led the defense with 9 tackles including 1.5 for a loss. The 11 year NFL veteran continues to play linebacker at an elite level. The Titans laid it on the Jaguars scoring 31 2nd half points on their way to a 37-16 win.

Avery Williamson also played well as he contributed 4 tackles and a pass deflection in the Titans 37-16 win. This is a huge year for Williamson as he will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. If the Kentucky product continues playing the way he has in his first 3 NFL seasons he should be in line for a major pay day.

Corey Peters, now a 7 year NFL veteran, failed to register a tackle in yesterday’s game but did find a way to pressure the quarterback with one QB hit in the Cardinals 16-13 win against the Indianapolis Colts.

    What about the great guard? Might be best of all…
