THE FLATS — The National Football League continues its run through the season as several former Yellow Jackets impressed heading into Week 12 in this week’s #ProJackets Football Report, presented by GEICO.

Raiders tight end Darren Waller shined with a career performance, hauling in 13 receptions for 200 yards and two touchdowns in Vegas’ 31-28 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, including eight catches and 123 yards in the first half.

“He’s special,” Raiders coach Jon Gruden said. “A lot of guys can’t even dream of doing what Darren Waller can do. … Many people may not even dream of doing what Darren Waller can do, and I think he is clearly frozen today as one of the top Pro Bowl tight ends in this business.”
