PSUers in the NFL, Divisional Playoffs: James and Hogan Move On

Eight teams are left in the NFL playoffs, with five of them having Penn State alums on the roster. How did the former Nittany Lions perform?

NFL: AFC Divisional-Houston Texans at New England Patriots David Butler III-USA TODAY Sports

Divisional Matchups:

Seahawks-Falcons (Gilliam)

Patriots-Texans (C. Hogan)

Packers-Cowboys (J. Crawford and S. Lee)

Steelers-Chiefs (Hali and Travis vs. J. James)

This week’s top performers:

  • Sean Lee led the Cowboys with eight tackles, including two tackles for loss.
  • Chris Hogan had four catches for 95 yards for the Patriots, including this 45-yarder. What a nice adjustment on the ball!
  • Jesse James had five catches for 83 yards for the Steelers, including this 26-yard reception. He had the best game of any TE on the field, which was surprising given that he was up against the Chiefs’ Travis Kelce.
  • Tamba Hali had one tackle for the Chiefs.
  • Jack Crawford had one tackle for the Cowboys.

Next week’s games:
