Mohamed Sanu: Best day of career for Rutgers grad

John Grieshop

Rookie Receiver Mohamed Sanu caught his first touchdown Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 31-13 victory over the New York Giants. Sanu had a record setting career at Rutgers before being a third-round draft pick of the Bengals.

Former Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had the best game of his young NFL career on Sunday. Sanu was the Cincinnati Bengals' second-leading receiver as they beat the New York Giants, 31-13.

Sanu was targeted six times on Sunday and made four catches for 47 yards and a touchdown. The rookie's first NFL touchdown came on a 10-yard pass from Andy Dalton which Sanu out-jumped his defender to grab on a post pattern.

It was the second touchdown that Sanu has been a part of this year after he threw one on Sept. 23 against the Washington Redskins, hitting A.J. Green for a 73-yarder on a trick play to open the game.

Despite not gaining a ton of yards, a number of Sanu's catches were crucial for the Bengals as he made catches for first downs in both third-and-eight and fourth-and-two situations. Sanu also ran for a first down, lining up in the backfield and picking up three yards on his only carry.

Thus far in his rookie season, Sanu has nine catches for 103 yards.

At Rutgers, Sanu was the all-time leader in carrer reception with 210 as well as holding the record for receptions in a season with 115 in 2011.
