It was another productive weekend for some former Penn State stars in the NFL, so let’s get to the highlights.
Adrian Amos, S, Green Bay Packers
Amos continues to shine in Green Bay’s secondary. In Sunday’s win over the Jaguars, it was the Green Bay defense, not it’s high powered offense, that had to carry the Packers for most of the game.
With Jacksonville approaching midfield in the second quarter, Amos jumped in front of the intended receiver and snagged an interception — his first of the 2020 season.
Chris Godwin, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
It’s safe to say Tampa Bay was a little ticked off after its drubbing at the hands of the New Orleans Saints a week ago on Sunday Night Football.
The Bucs offense was unstoppable in their bounceback win over Carolina in Week 10, racking up 46 points and 544 yards of total offense.
Godwin was once again a focal point, with six receptions for 92 yards.
Even with Antonio Brown in the lineup, the former Nittany Lion is sure to continue to receive a high-amount of targets from Tom Brady.
Carl Nassib, DL, Las Vegas Raiders
Hey, who doesn’t love when a defensive lineman gets an interception?
Nassib snagged his first career INT in Las Vegas’ 37-13 win over divisional rivals Denver on Sunday, catching Broncos QB Drew Lock completely by surprise as he dropped into coverage in the middle of the field.
Nasib and the Raiders will now host the Kansas City Chiefs for a huge matchup on Sunday Night Football in Week 11.
DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Denver Broncos
It was a tough day at the office for the Denver offense, but Hamilton came up with another touchdown grab.
That gives him two touchdowns in as many weeks.
He finished the game with three receptions for 33 yards and that score.
