Nittany Lions In The NFL: Week 11 Roundup
Penn State took care of business this weekend by beating Rutgers 27-6 in Beaver Stadium on Saturday. On Sunday, a group of Penn State football alumni took care of business in the NFL, too. Here’s how these pros performed in their matchups this week in the league.
Saquon Barkley, New York Giants
The Giants finally got back in the win column after a tough three-game losing streak, and Saquon Barkley was a big reason why. Barkley had 14 carries for 83 yards, four receptions for 57 yards, and two receiving touchdowns in the 31-19 victory over the Commanders.
Ji’Ayir Brown, San Francisco 49ers
Ji’Ayir Brown recorded his first career interception on a diving catch in the back of the end zone in the 27-14 win over the Buccaneers. Brown had four tackles and three passes defended to go along with an interception.
