Sensational day for PSU alums in NFL

Sunday was a great day for Penn State alums in the pros, as one after another after another, former Nittany Lions made highlight reel plays.

Let’s start with this 82-yard TD run by Miles Sanders of the Eagles against the Saints. Sanders also had another TD, a 1-yard run, and finished with 115 yards on 14 carries in Philly’s 24-21 win.

Rookie KJ Hamler made two long TD grabs in the Broncos’ 32-27 win over the Panthers. Hamler caught two passes for 86 yards, and both were scores.

Mike Gesicki had a big day for the Dolphins, catching five passes for 65 yards and two TDs. This first highlight is one of his TD grabs, but the second one actually earned him more praise as he pulled off a tremendous one-handed catch. Unfortunately, Gesicki left the game later on after suffering a shoulder injury.

Allen Robinson had yet another outstanding day with nine catches for 123 yards and one TD in the Bears’ 36-7 win over the Texans. Robinson now has more than 1,000 receiving yards this season and has made more than 100 catches in a row without dropping a pass.
