WAZZU GREAT Ropati Pitoitua contributed mightily in Tennessee’s 38-13 thrashing of the New York Jets on Sunday. The Titanic Titan pressured Jets’ quarterback Geno Smith much of the day and sacked him twice.

His Sunday sack output already equals his previous season best, set last season as a Kansas City Chief.

PITOITUA'S OLD Cougar teammate Eric Frampton—recently released by Dallas—had a tryout with Baltimore last week, but wasn’t immediately signed to a contract. Frampton has made hay in the NFL with his special teams prowess over the past six seasons.

Here’s how the NFL Cougs performed in week four:

Husain Abdullah, CB, Kansas City, 5th season: No recorded stats from the Chiefs’ 31-7 victory against the New York Giants.

Jed Collins, FB, New Orleans, 5th season: Caught one pass for 6 yards in the Saints’ 38-17 defeat of Miami on Monday.

Brandon Gibson, WR, Miami, 5th season: The Puyallup native led all Dolphin receivers with six catches for 71 yards in a losing effort against New Orleans.

Chris Ivory, RB, New York Jets, 4th season: Did not play; out with a hamstring injury suffered in week three.

Rian Lindell, K, Tampa Bay, 14th season: The Vancouver native connected on a 50-yard field goal, but it wasn’t enough to give the Bucs their first win of the year, as they fell to Arizona, 13-10. He was also true on his line extra-point attempt.

Travis Long, LB, Philadelphia, 1st year: Did not play; assigned to the Eagles’ practice squad.

Ropati Pitoitua, DE, Tennessee, 5th season: The Tacoma native posted three solo stops—2 of which were QB sacks—in the Titans’ 38-13 win against his former employer, the New York Jets.

Jeff Tuel, QB, Buffalo, Rookie: No recorded stats from the Bills’ 24-20 defeat of Baltimore.

Marquess Wilson, WR, Chicago, Rookie: Declared inactive for the Bears’ 40-32 loss to Detroit.
