Quote Steve Smith, nevermore.
Six months after being released by the Carolina Panthers, Smith shined against his former team on Sunday.
The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver caught two touchdowns and tallied 139 receiving yards in a 38-10 victory at M&T Bank Stadium.
The charismatic Smith was fired up about his performance following Sundayâ€™s game.
Rallying from 17 points down against Charleston Southern, the UNC Charlotte football team's comeback fell short on Saturday at Richardson Stadium.
The Niners failed to come away with points to start overtime, and the 25th-ranked Bucs scored on a one-yard run by Christian Reyes on the ensuing possession to come away with a 47-41 victory.
Chris Robinson continued to play the role of "super sub".
The senior fullback rushed for 192 yards and three touchdowns for Lenoir-Rhyne University in a 47-9 win over Tusculum on Saturday night.
The Bears (4-0, 2-0 South Atlantic Conference) gained 622 yards and won for the 22nd time in their last 23 home games.
Steve Smith never imagined playing in another football uniform.
Then came March 13, 2014, when the Carolina Panthers, who heâ€™d spent all 13 seasons of his NFL career with, let him go.
Up three points at halftime, the Maiden football team played a near perfect second half against Bunker Hill.
The Blue Devils scored on three of its four second half possessions and also returned a Bears fumble for a score in a 49-26 win to start conference play.
Chazz Surratt threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, leading East Lincoln to a 48-17 victory against visiting in Bandys on Friday night.
