Nissan #ProJackets Football Report

Oct. 3, 2016

THE FLATS — Week four of the NFL regular season saw a number of #ProJacket defenders have an impact on their team’s success on the field.

Linebacker Philip Wheeler registered a season-high four tackles, two solo and two assisted, to help lead the Falcons to a 48-33 win over divisional foe Carolina on Sunday afternoon, while on Thursday night, Michael Johnson totaled one tackle and a half a sack as the Bengals routed the Miami Dolphins 22-7.

Although in a losing effort, outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu totaled a season-high four tackles, all solo, to go along with his second sack of the season against the New Orleans Saints.

Offensively, Demaryius Thomas hauled in six catches and a touchdown for the second straight week to help keep the Denver Broncos undefeated with a 27-7 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

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