For The Glory Offensive Player of the Week:

Chris Godwin

Despite not putting up his usual high-yardage game, Godwin did enough win this week’s award because of a very slow week from the rest of the Nittany Lion offensive core in the NFL. He would finish with 47 yards with a nice touchdown that you can check out below.
