Smith gets the better of rookie Davis
By Pat Yasinskas
I said earlier I thought Vontae Davis had made a mistake by jawing with Steve Smith early in the game. The proof of that just came through as Smith beat Davis for a touchdown catch.
Did you see Smith’s initial reaction as he got up after the catch? He quickly looked for Davis and appeared ready to do something to add insult to Davis’ injury. But Smith didn’t get the chance.
Tight end Dante Rosario quickly put his arms around Smith and that kept the little guy from doing any further damage. Smith’s touchdown and a two-point conversion by DeAngelo Williams has cut Miami’s lead to 17-4 with 5:13 left in the game.
