#ProJackets Week 7 Update

Oct. 20, 2014

Seven #ProJackets saw action during week 7 of the 2014 NFL season.  Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas turned in his third straight stellar performance as he led the Broncos’ in receiving yards with 171 while also scoring two touchdowns. Thomas also caught Peyton Manning’s 509th TD pass which broke the previous NFL record of 508 TD passes in a career held by Brett Favre.  

Baltimore Ravens LB Daryl Smith also had a great game as he led the Ravens’ in tackles with 13 in their win over the Atlanta Falcons. Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson missed his second straight game of the season and his team travels to London this week to take on the Atlanta Falcons in Wembley Stadium at 9:30 a.m. ET.
