THE FLATS — Week 16 saw a number of Georgia Tech #ProJackets help secure their team’s spot in the upcoming 2017 NFL Playoffs.

Offensive lineman Shaq Mason and the New England Patriots recorded another big win this week, a 37-16 blowout of the Buffalo Bills, in which Mason had a great block in the contest which drew the eye of many media members on Twitter.
