While it was a tough Saturday for Michigan State, Sunday is looking much better for Kenneth Walker III and Jayden Reed.

Saturday was a forgettable day for Spartan fans everywhere. Michigan State struggled mightily against Washington in a 41-7 thrashing at home by the Huskies. But Sunday was much better for the green and white. Kenneth Walker III and Jayden Reed had big days in the NFL.

Walker III was playing the Detroit Lions and a lot of local fans were not happy with how well he played against their team. He didn’t have the most effective day on the ground, but he did cross the goal line a couple of times.


The first touchdown by Walker gave the Seahawks an early 7-0 lead and the second score tied the game up at 14-14 in the third quarter. He had just over 40 yards in the game, but his offensive line did him no favors. A nice two-touchdown game for Walker in his return “home” to Detroit.

Not a bad day.

As for rookie wideout Jayden Reed, he was most of the Packers’ offense on Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, scoring the first touchdown of the game as well as another in the second half to extend Green Bay’s lead.


Like Walker’s touchdown, Reed’s was the first of the game for the Packers. He put Green Bay on the board and gave them a 7-3 lead in the first quarter. His second touchdown extended a slim Green Bay lead to two scores.

It’s clear that he’s going to be one of Jordan Love’s favorite targets this season.

Michigan State fans are still recovering from a tough Saturday following a tumultuous week, but Sunday had to put some smiles on some otherwise sad faces in East Lansing. It’s great to see Kenneth Walker III and Jayden Reed flourishing at the next level.
