Georgia Tech #ProJackets Football Report: Week 15

Dec. 18, 2017

THE FLATS — Week 15 of the NFL regular season got off to a great start on Thursday night, as Georgia Tech had four #ProJackets take the field in the last prime time Thursday night game of the season in the meeting between Denver and Indianapolis.

In the head-to-head action, the Denver Broncos and Adam Gotsis (six tackles) and Demaryius Thomas (five catches, 69 yards) defeated Chris Milton and D.J. White (three tackles) of the Indianapolis Colts 25-13 on Thursday Night Football.

On the offensive side of the ball, offensive lineman Shaq Mason helped guide the New England Patriots to a thrilling win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, while kicker Harrison Butker scored 12 points (three field goals and three PATs) in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Defensively, Morgan Burnett posted seven stops, including five solo tackles, for the Green Bay Packers in a loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon, while Michael Johnson had four tackles in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Off the field, Johnson received the honor of being nominated as the Cincinnati Bengals’ representative for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award (READ HERE).
