Nissan #ProJackets Report, Week 17

Jan. 4, 2016

Seven #ProJackets have advanced to the 2016 NFL Playoffs, including three players who will play in this weekend’s Wild Card Weekend. On Tuesday, Carolina promoted CB Lou Young to the Panthers’ active roster from the practice squad.

Michael Johnson and the Cincinnati Bengals will host Pittsburgh on Saturday at 8:15 p.m. ET on CBS. Brandon Watts and the Minnesota Vikings will host defending NFC champion Seattle on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. ET, followed by Morgan Burnett and the Green Bay Packers against Washington at 4:40 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Three more #ProJackets will see action during the Divisional Playoffs on Jan. 16 (Shaq Mason, New England) and Jan. 17 (Demaryius Thomas and Vance Walker, Denver).

Morgan Burnett had another solid weekend for the Packers, tallying eight tackles. Burnett finished the season with 11 straight starts in the Green Bay secondary.

Both Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas had huge offensive days on the final week of the NFL regular season. Megatron tied a season high with 10 catches in the Lions win, while Thomas had 117 receiving yards in a Broncos home win.
