#ProJackets Football Report: Week 17

THE FLATS — The story of the season from the start, Raiders tight end and #ProJacket Darren Waller finished strong, recording his third 100-yard receiving game in the last five weeks of the NFL regular season.

Eclipsing the century mark for the fifth time this season, Waller hauled in 107 yards on six receptions, including a season-long 75-yarder in the 16-15 nail-biting loss at Denver. He finished with 90 receptions, 1,145 yards and three touchdowns on the season.

Despite not being named to the Pro Bowl, Waller feels content with his performance this season and is already building toward 2020.

Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker finished up the regular season with a 1-for-1 FG performance (6-for-6 PAT) in the 31-21 win over Chargers. He’ll join Shaq Mason and Chris Milton (injured reserve) in representing #ProJackets in the NFL Playoffs. The Chiefs earned a first-round bye.

Mason and the Patriots lost in the final game of the season 27-24 at Miami to secure a first-round playoff spot and will face Milton’s Titans at 8:15 p.m. ET.

Milton remains on injured reserve and hasn’t played since Nov. 24 against Jacksonville.

Below is a complete list of the Football #ProJackets who were on NFL rosters this preseason.
