Nittany Lion jersey swaps continue in week three of the NFL season

Everyone knows Penn State ties are stronger than anything, but maybe no one knows that better than some Nittany Lions in the NFL these days.

Baltimore Ravens practice quarterback Trace McSorley met two of his former Penn State teammates – fullback Jason Cabinda and cornerback Amani Oruwariye – on Sunday afternoon to catch up on their late and exchange some discussions.

Oruwariye had four total tackles and a timely interception, but his stat line was not enough to put Detroit above Baltimore. Cabinda himself contributed a tackle, while McSorley did not play.

Another Penn State jersey swap took place after Monday Night Football between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys.

After the game, running back Miles Sanders and linebacker Micah Parsons caught up and changed their jerseys. The former teammates are now some of the best players on their NFC East teams.

Parsons’ solid effort helped Dallas beat Philadelphia 41-21. The rookie linebacker had four total tackles, one half-sack, one tackle for loss and one pass deflection. Sanders, meanwhile, totaled 55 yards from the scrum but was hardly used.

Sanders and Parsons will meet again in the Cowboys and Eagles rematch in Philadelphia on January 9.
