Micah Parsons led the way for Penn State alums that had standout performances this past weekend. Parsons had five tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble in the Dallas Cowboys 22-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams. He is now tied for the league lead with six sacks through Week 5 of the NFL season.

Other Notable Performances from Penn State Alum:

Saquon Barkley

Barkley had 70 rushing yards on 13 carries to go along with three catches for 36 yards in the New York Giants’ 27-22 win over the Green Bay Packers. Barkley is second in the league in rushing with 533 yards.

Miles Sanders

Sanders rushed for 58 yards in the Philadelphia Eagles’ 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Sanders is third in the league in rushing through Week 5 with 414 yards.

Chris Godwin

Godwin caught six passes for 61 yards in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 21-15 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Jaquan Brisker

Brisker had five tackles in the Chicago Bears’ 29-22 loss to the Chicago Bears. Brisker is already a foundational piece in New Bears head coach Mat Eberflus’s defense.

Kevin Givens

Givens had only one tackle for the San Fransico 49ers’ 37-15 win over the Carolina Panthers. However, he gained praise from NFL Analyst Brian Baldinger for his player development into a solid starter because of his work ethic and his willingness to be coached.
