Sunday may not have been a banner day for the Jacksonville, but Paul Posluszny showed why he is one of top linebackers in the NFL in the Jaguars’ 45-17 loss at Seattle.

The former Penn State star was involved in 12 tackles, including five solo. He now has 31 through three games, which is good enough to lead the league.

He also had a interception, the 10th of his career.

Seahawks defensive tackle Jordan Hill was inactive for the third straight week.

Here is a look at how other former Penn Staters fared in Week 3.
