Nissan #ProJackets Report, Divisional Round

Jan. 18, 2016

Four #ProJackets punched their tickets to Sunday’s conference championship games. Shaq Mason will face fellow Georgia Tech alumni Demaryius Thomas and Vance Walker in the AFC Championship Game at Denver, while Lou Young and the Carolina Panthers will host the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game.

With the conference championship matchups set, Super Bowl 50 will feature at least one #ProJacket on a team roster, marking the eighth time in the last nine years that at least one #ProJacket will play in a Super Bowl.

Denver’s Divisional Round win over Pittsburgh was extra sweet for Demaryius Thomas, whose mom was watching him play football for the first time.

Check out the rest of this week’s Nissan #ProJackets Report.
