Nissan #ProJackets Report, Week 12

Dec. 1, 2015

Here is your Nissan #ProJackets Report for Week 12:

Megatron continues to prove why he’s the best receiver in the NFL. Calvin Johnson caught three touchdowns in Detroit’s 45-14 Thanksgiving Day win over Philadelphia. Johnson has scored a touchdown on seven straight Turkey Days, an NFL record. He also broke his own Thanksgiving record for career touchdown receptions (11).

For the 7th straight season, make sure to leave room for a Megatron Touchdown catch this Thanksgiving. #PHIvsDET https://t.co/NCV5YgZn9w

Philip Wheeler turned in his second double-digit tackle performance in three games, recording a season-high 11 stops in Atlanta’s 20-10 loss to Minnesota. During the nightcap of the NFL’s Thanksgiving Day slate of games, Morgan Burnett tallied seven tackles for the Green Bay Packers.

Tennessee’s Derrick Morgan was sidelined with a shoulder injury, a week after his streak of 34 consecutive starts came to an end.

For only the third week this season, no #ProJackets will be on Monday Night Football. One of the major Week 13 matchups will be Thursday night when Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions host Morgan Burnett and the Green Bay Packers. Sunday afternoon will also feature another #ProJackets tilt between San Diego (Jeremiah Attaochu) and Denver (Demaryius Thomas, Vance Walker).
