Nissan #ProJackets Football Report

Nov. 28, 2016

THE FLATS — With the college football regular season coming to an end this week, the NFL regular season is hitting its stride in week 12 with a third of the year yet to play.

Wideout Demaryius Thomas continued his torrid pace, as he hauled in five catches for 60 yards, including a long of 24 yards (watch below). His five catches on Sunday night versus the Kansas City Chiefs gives him 10 straight games with five catches or more on the season.

CLICK HERE to see his 24-yard grab versus the Chiefs on Sunday night.

Shaq Mason and Darren Waller (2 catches, 14 yards) both aided in their team’s wins this weekend on the offensive side of the ball.

Defensively, Derrick Morgan (2 tackles, 1 pass defended), Daryl Smith (1 tackle) and Philip Wheeler (1 tackle) all contributed to their team wins, while Jeremiah Attaochu and D.J. White both saw action on the field in their team’s victory on Sunday as well.

Rookie Christopher Milton, who was signed by the Colts to the active roster from the practice squad on Nov. 19, made his NFL debut on special teams on Thursday night versus the Pittsburg Steelers.

Below is a complete list of the Football #ProJackets currently on NFL rosters.
