The third week of the NFL's season saw some former Auburn Tigers have a big weekend among the best of the best.
Karlos Dansby proved himself to be one of Auburn's last great linebackers as he raked in a season high 12 tackles, two stuffs for five yards lost and a pass deflection. Dansby's Arizona teammate, Jerraud Powers, helped out with three solo tackles and one assisted tackles. Nick Fairley had three assisted tackles and two yards lost in Detroit's win over Washington. Pat Sims had two tackles with the Raiders in the Monday night game against the Broncos. Sen'Derrick Marks and Josh Bynes both collected one tackle and one assisted tackle in their respective games. Linebacker Daren Bates picked up another solo tackle with the Rams.
Quaterback Cam Newton had a stellar Sunday, throwing for 223 yards and three touchdown passes, as well as his first rushing touchdown of the season. Ronnie Brown rushed for six yards on five attempts but picked up a touchdown along the way. Ben Tate ran nine times for 36 yards in the Texans' loss to the Ravens.
Great job this week, Tigers, and as always, War Eagle!
