Griz In The Pros Week 6 Roundup
After a disappointing Week 5 in which no NFL team with Grizzly ties won, Week 6 brought about redemption for a few squads.
The Atlanta Falcons rebounded against the Carolina Panthers in a 31-17 win. The Dirty Birds are now 3-3 on the season. Defensive end Kroy Biermann came off the bench to record two quarterback hits, while safety Shann Schillinger had two assists on special teams.
The Philadelphia Eagles also got back into the win column, snapping a 4-game losing streak with a 20-13 win over the Washington Redskins. Philly is now 2-4 on the year. Safety Colt Anderson picked up an assist on special teams in the win.
The Miami Dolphins trekked north to face the New York Jets on “Monday Night Football”. Unfortunately, just like their geographic location, the Phins play continued to spiral south as they fell 24-6. For the second time this season, all of Miami’s points were scored by former Montana Grizzlies. Kicker Dan Carpenter was 2-for-2 on field goals, connecting from 23 and 21 yards away. Carpenter also made one tackle. Running back Lex Hilliard got the start for Miami, and finished with 1 reception for 15 yards. On special teams, cornerback Jimmy Wilson contributed 2 tackles and a forced fumble.
Finally, the Tennessee Titans were on their bye week and will return to action next Sunday.
