Dec. 29, 2015

Week 16 of the 2015 NFL season featured four solid defensive performances from #ProJackets, led by Green Bay’s Morgan Burnett, who tallied 10 tackles at Arizona. Baltimore LB Daryl Smith recorded eight tackles and his first interception of the season, while Michael Johnson (Cincinnati) and Vance Walker (Denver) added six and five tackles, respectively.

Rookie guard Shaq Mason made his 10th start on the offensive line for the New England Patriots. Mason is one of six #ProJackets that will play in the NFL Playoffs in January, joining Demaryius Thomas and Walker (Denver), Johnson, Burnett and Brandon Watts (Minnesota).
