Nissan #ProJackets Football Report

Sept. 5, 2016

THE FLATS — In the final week of the 2016 NFL Preseason last week, it would be a handful of defenders that would stand out for the #ProJackets as teams begin to make their final preparations for the upcoming 2016-17 season.

Making his first start of the preseason slate, Brandon Watts recorded seven total tackles, three solo and four assisted, to help lead the Minnesota Vikings to a 27-25 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, Sept. 1.

Cornerback Mario Butler also played well in his first start of the preseason, as he totaled four solo tackles for the Buffalo Bills in a loss to the Detroit Lions on Sept. 1.

Across the field was Isaiah Johnson, who posted two tackles for the Lions in the 31-0 win over the Bills, while Adam Gotsis finished with two tackles himself for the Denver Broncos in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Chris Milton recorded an interception and a pass defended for the Indianapolis Colts in their win over the Cincinnati Bengals, D.J. White got the start and tallied one tackle in the Chiefs’ win, while Philip Wheeler finished with four tackles, two solo and two assisted, in the Falcons’ 17-15 win over Jacksonville.
