Nissan #ProJackets Football Report

Sept. 26, 2016

THE FLATS — Two #ProJackets had NFL career firsts this past week, while another will suit up for his team tonight on Monday Night Football from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La.

NFL rookies D.J. White and Adam Gotsis had a memorable week in week three of the NFL season, as each posted an NFL first.  White recorded his first career interception, picking off Ryan Fitzpatrick of the New York Jets in the Chiefs’ 24-3 win on Sunday afternoon. Gotsis recorded his first career tackle in the Broncos 29-17 road win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Not to be outdone, veteran Demaryius Thomas totaled 100 yards receiving on six catches in the Broncos’ win, which included a 55 yard touchdown catch and run.
