With another week into the NFL season, we’re starting to get a little more serious about what the playoffs look like.
Surely there is plenty of time for these bubble teams to push. But looking at other teams like the Rams and Packers, it’s starting to look more and more likely that they won’t make it to the playoffs.
We saw some outstanding Nittany Lions this week.

The Bucks lost to the Browns, but Chris Godwin put in an impressive performance, helping Tampa Bay stay in the game despite losing in overtime.
There weren’t many outstanding former Penn State players, but there are still some worth highlighting.
