This week’s performers:

  • The Patriots’ Chris Hogan had six catches for 128 yards on eight targets, including a 26-yard touchdown, and also added one carry for four yards.

His first reception was a 28 yard catch-and-run down the near sideline on the Patriots first drive, followed up by a four yard end-around carry.

Hogan then made a 12-yard grab for the first down near the end of the first quarter. New England missed a field goal on the drive.

Hogan’s third grab came on a 43-yard deep ball where he beat Jalen Mills down the right side, leading to a James White touchdown run on the next play.

His fourth catch was good for 15 yards and a first down with five minutes left in the third quarter.

Hogan’s fifth reception was the aforementioned 26-yard touchdown, and he later made a sixth grab for three yards early in the fourth quarter.

A fantastic effort for the former lacrosse star Hogan, who has been the most consistent PSUer in the NFL this season (with the possible exception of Sean Lee and NaVorro Bowman when healthy) but his efforts weren’t quite as good as the Eagles and their Penn Stater...

  • Stefen Wisniewski helped Philadelphia amass 538 yards on offense and score 41 points. The Eagles punted just once in the game, were not sacked the entire contest, and controlled the ball for over 34 minutes.

Wis is now a Super Bowl champion!!
