Georgia Tech #ProJackets Football Report: Week Five

Oct. 9, 2017

THE FLATS — Despite a few #ProJackets being on their bye week this week, Georgia Tech had a strong showing in week five as every #ProJacket that put on a helmet and jersey for their respective team got a win except for one in week five of the NFL season.

Defensive end Michael Johnson appears to finally be 100 percent after an early season injury, as the veteran #ProJacket had a season-high four solo tackles and 2.0 sacks in the Cincinnati Bengals’ 20-16 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

After kicking the game-winning field goal in his first-ever NFL game last Monday night versus the Washington Redskins, Harrison Butker did not disappoint in his second career game on Sunday night, as the rookie #ProJacket went a perfect 5-for-5 on field goals, including a long of 49 yards to help the Kansas City Chiefs remain unbeaten (5-0) with a 42-34 win over the Houston Texans.

Extra: Harrison Butker nails 43-yard go-ahead field goal to seal epic win.

Harrison Butker is just the third kicker since 1950 to connect on eight or more field goals through his first two NFL games.

Morgan Burnett

and the Green Bay Packers continued their strong start to the 2017 season with another close win, this time over the Dallas Cowboys, to put Green Bay at 4-1 on the year.

Shaq Mason and the New England Patriots bounced back from a home loss last week to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-14 on Thursday night football, while Chris Milton return to the field on special teams for the Indianapolis Colts in a win over the San Francisco 49ers after missing the last two games while bothered with an injury.
