#ProJackets Report, Week 2

Sept. 21, 2015

Rookie Shaq Mason made his career-first NFL start as 10 #ProJackets started in Week 2 action of the 2015 NFL season. Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas posted his first 100-yard game of 2015 with eight catches for 116 yards in a Thursday night win at Kansas City.

Calvin Johnson hauled in 10 catches for 83 yards with a score in Detroit’s 26-16 loss to Minnesota. His amazing touchdown grab was an instant highlight on Sunday. 

Defensively, Derrick Morgan recorded six tackles and forced a fumble in Tennessee’s 28-14 road loss at Cleveland. Daryl Smith snagged eight tackles in Baltimore’s 37-33 loss at Oakland.

DT T.J. Barnes is the lone #ProJackets player in action on Monday Night Football as the New York Jets face the Indianapolis Colts.

Next week, three NFL games will feature #ProJackets matchups: Jets (Barnes) vs. Eagles (Gardner), Lions (C. Johnson) vs. Broncos (Thomas, Walker), and Bengals (M. Johnson) vs. Ravens (Smith, Waller).
