Griz In The Pros Week 2 Roundup

NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” provided a nice little University of Montana reunion, as 3 former players took to the Georgia Dome field for the same game, as the Atlanta Falcons hosted the Philadelphia Eagles.

Falcons safety Shann Schillinger finished with a single special teams tackle. Atlanta defensive end Kroy Biermann collected one tackle defensively, and one tackle and two assists on special teams. The Falcons won 35-31.

Eagles safety Colt Anderson made one of the more underrated plays of the game. In addition to his one special teams tackle, Anderson also downed a punt at the Atlanta 1-yard line, setting up the Falcons in awful field position offensively.

The Miami Dolphins traveled to Houston to face the Texans. Safety Jimmy Wilson and running back Lex Hilliard got into the game, but did not garner any official statistics. Kicker Dan Carpenter was 1-for-1 on point after kicks, but just 2-for-4 on field goals. Carpenter nailed two kicks from 47 and 34 yards, respectively, but also missed a 34-yarder wide left and had another attempt blocked.

Finally, Tennessee’s Marc Mariani had the most impressive day of any former Griz. Not only did Mariani’s Titans upset the Baltimore Ravens 26-13, but Mariani played a lot of offensive snaps as the team’s 4th wide receiver. Mariani finished with two catches for 9 yards offensively, and returned 3 punts for 17 yards.
