Mizzou football players meet up on the gridiron again.
Earlier this preseason we got to see a matchup between former Mizzou football players Damarea Crockett and J’Mon Moore.
Both of the players scored touchdowns.
It’s nothing new, the NFL is a place where former college teammates meet up every Sunday, but especially throughout the preseason when more players see the field.
Friday night’s game between the New York Giants and the Chicago Bears brought two other Mizzou players against each other — and this time, it wasn’t a case where two players scored a TD. It was a game where the two players were on the field at the same time.
Chicago Bears quarterback Chase Daniel and New York Giants pass rusher Markus Golden stepped on the field at MetLife Stadium where the Giants defeated the Bears 32-13.
Daniel started the game and finished 12 of 18 for 103 yards. He was sacked three times, and one of those came by way of Golden.
The former second-round pick pushed through the tight end and buried Daniel into the ground for an 8-yard loss in the second quarter.
Daniel’s play was solid enough Friday. He will be the backup to quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Golden also will make the team, but it was a good sight to see the fifth-year pro get to the quarterback.
He showed the same speed and quickness he did while he was with the Arizona Cardinals throughout the first two years of his career.
The past couple of years he has been slowed with an ACL injury. Hopefully this is a sign he will have a bounce-back season. Even though it came against one of Mizzou’s all-time great QBs, it’s OK. That’s what the preseason is for.
