Penn State In The NFL: Week 4 Recap

Penn State has long been recognized for its ability to develop young players into NFL stars. This week, Penn Staters represented their alma mater well at the highest level of football competition.

Paul Posluszny, Allen Robinson, Jared Odrick – Jacksonville Jaguars

For perhaps the most interesting NFL team for Penn State fans, Allen Robinson had another strong showing. He made four catches for a total of 80 yards, including one play that went for 48 yards. On the defensive side of the ball, Paul Posluszny made five tackles, bringing his season total to 39 which is good for fourth in the league. Jared Odrick also recorded one takedown.

Chris Hogan – Buffalo Bills

Hogan, a former Penn State lacrosse player, continued his NFL success with five grabs for 43 yards on Sunday in a 24-10 loss against the New York Giants.

Nate Stupar – Atlanta Falcons

Stupar continued his hot streak of play on Sunday as he led the team with six tackles when the Falcons beat the Texans 48-21. He also recovered a fumble and returned it for an 84-yard touchdown to end the game.


  • Sean Lee and Jack Crawford – Dallas Cowboys: In a thrilling overtime matchup, the Dallas Cowboys fell to the New Orleans Saints by a score of 26-20. Jack Crawford made two tackles, while Sean Lee made three before leaving in the first half with a concussion.
  • NaVorro Bowman – San Francisco 49ers: Since the departure of long-time San Francisco defensive staples such as Patrick Willis and Aldon Smith, Bowman has had to play a much larger role in the San Francisco defensive scheme. Bowman came up large on Sunday with eight tackles. Unfortunately his efforts weren’t enough and the 49ers lost to the Packers 17-3.
  • Adrian Amos and Robbie Gould – Chicago Bears: Both of the Chicago Bears’ Penn Staters performed well in their 22-20 defeat of the Oakland Raiders. Adrian Amos made five tackles and Robbie Gould made all three of his field goal attempts. His long on the day was 54 yards, but his crowning achievement was a 49-yarder to win the game.
  • Sam Ficken: No he hasn’t been signed yet, but after poor performances by kickers across the league, there’s reason to be optimistic regarding his NFL dreams.
  • Garry Gilliam – Seattle Seahawks: Gilliam once again proved his reliability for the Seahawks, making his fourth start of the year on the team’s offensive line.
