Nissan #ProJackets Football Report

Jan. 9, 2017

THE FLATS — While only one #ProJacket was in action this weekend during the NFL Wildcard Weekend, a total of five #ProJackets will hit the field for the NFL Divisional Round of the Playoffs this weekend.

Morgan Burnett, the lone #ProJacket in action this past weekend, helped lead the Packers to a 38-13 drubbing of the New York Giants to advance to the Divisional Round versus the Dallas Cowboys. Burnett totaled five solo tackles in Green Bay’s win.

Along with Burnett, T.J. Barnes (Kansas City Chiefs), D.J. White (Kansas City Chiefs), Shaq Mason (New England Patriots) and Philip Wheeler (Atlanta Falcons) will all look to keep their teams’ season alive this weekend in the NFL Divisional Round.

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