Nissan #ProJackets Football Report

Dec. 27, 2016

THE FLATS — As the 2016 NFL regular season winds down, a number of #ProJackets are looking to help their teams make the playoffs.

Shaq Mason and the New England Patriots rolled to a 41-3 beat down of the N.Y. Jets on Dec. 24, as the Patriots totaled 114 yards on the grounds and 220 yards through the air in the win.

Safety Morgan Burnett helped to lead the Packers to a 38-25 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Dec. 24, as he picked up eight total tackles, six solo, on the night.

T.J. Barnes and D.J. White both saw action in the Chiefs’ 33-10 win over the Denver Broncos, while Philip Wheeler recorded two stops in the Falcons’ 33-16 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Two #ProJackets in Isaiah Johnson and DeAndre Smelter were both signed from the practice squads and saw action for their respective teams last week against each other in the L.A. Rams and San Francisco 49ers contest.
