Nittany Lions In The NFL: Week Eight Roundup
Penn State football took down the Indiana Hoosiers at home to advance to 7-1 on Saturday. Nittany Lions around the NFL suited up this past weekend as well and had some big performances.
If you were unable to catch these performances or were recovering from Halloweekend, here’s what you missed.
Jahan Dotson, Washington Commanders
Jahan Dotson had a career-high eight receptions on 10 targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Commanders’ 38-31 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. The 23-year-old led Washington in receiving yards, and it was his second 100-yard receiving game of his career.
Saquon Barkley, New York Giants
To say Saquon Barkley carried the Giants’ offense on Sunday is an understatement. Barkley was the Giants’ only offensive production in the 13-10 loss to the Jets.
Barkley had 36 carries for 128 yards along with three receptions. The Giants’ offense, as a whole, only had 194 total yards and ended with -9 yards through the air.
