Saquon Barkley once again led the way for Penn State players in the NFL this week. Barkley rushed for 83 yards on 22 carries and scored the game-winning touchdown in the New York Giants’ 24-20 come-from-behind win over the Baltimore Ravens. Barkley now has 616 rushing yards on the season good for second in the NFL through six weeks

Other notable performances: 


Gesicki had his best game of the season, catching six passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns in the Miami Dolphins’ 24-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday. He also garnered a lot of attention for his rendition of the griddy.


Sanders rushed for 71 yards on 18 carries and scored a touchdown, helping the Philadelphia Eagles remain undefeated with a 26-17 win over the hated Cowboys Sunday night. Sanders has 485 yards on the season which is good for fourth in the league. In the same game, Parsons recorded seven tackles and two pass breakups.


Godwin had six catches for 95 yards, but his Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-18 Sunday afternoon.


Brisker recorded five tackles and a sack on Carson Wentz as the Chicago Bears came up short against the Washington Commanders 12-7 Thursday night.


Robinson caught five passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Los Angeles Rams’ 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers Sunday.


Johnson recorded four tackles and a tackle for loss in the Los Angeles Chargers’ 19-16 overtime victory over the Denver Broncos Monday night.
