Griz In The Pros Week 5 Roundup
4 teams in the National Football League employ former Montana Grizzlies on their active rosters. None of them won on Sunday.
In fact, the closest anybody got to a win was in Miami, where the Dolphins were on their bye week.
Philadelphia, Atlanta and Tennessee combined to go 0-fer against their competition.
Individually, defensive end Kroy Biermann got the start for the Falcons in place of the injured John Abraham. He responded with 3 assists defensively. Safety Shann Schillinger came off the bench for Atlanta, but did not register any statistics, as the Falcons fell to Green Bay, 25-14.
The Tennesse Titans had to travel north to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. Things did not go well for Tennessee, as the Steelers rolled in a 38-17 victory. Special teamer Marc Mariani returned 3 kickoffs for 93 yards, 1 punt for 10 yards, and offensively caught 1 pass for 5 yards. Mariani also had one drop at wide receiver.
Finally, the Philadelphia Eagles’ tailspin continued in Buffalo, as the Bills broke through for a 31-24 win. Safety Colt Anderson chipped in with one tackle on special teams.
