Nissan #ProJackets Football Report

Dec. 5, 2016

THE FLATS — Week 13 saw a trio of #ProJackets suit up back in Atlanta, Ga., while a number of former Jackets helped lead their teams to victories.

Philip Wheeler of the Atlanta Falcons, D.J. White and T.J. Barnes of the Kansas City Chiefs all played in the Georgia Dome on Sunday afternoon, as Barnes made his season debut for the Chiefs who escaped Atlanta with a 29-28 win.

Morgan Burnett totaled nine tackles in a snowy day in Green Bay to help lead his Packers to a 21-13 win over the visiting Houston Texans, while Adam Gotsis (2 tackles), Michael Johnson (1 tackle) and Daryl Smith (1 tackle) all saw action in their teams’ respective wins this weekend.

Demaryius Thomas hauled in six catches for 61 yards to continue his steak of five catches or more for the 11th straight game, which included this diving catch by Thomas in the win over the Jaguars.

Darren Waller hauled in a season-long 15-yard reception in the Ravens’ win over the Dolphins, while Shaq Mason again helped lead a strong Patriots’ offensive attack in their rout of the Rams on Sunday.

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