The stop at the 1 yard line, smashing that receiver so he couldn't lean the ball into the endzone. Great play!!
but the one man option destroyer was the one of the more amazing individual plays I have seen in a long while. Closes in on the QB forcing him to pitch, Browner cuts to the pitch man, stops him in his tracks, strips the ball and recovers it.
This is the play that changed my mind. My knock on Browner has never been his ability to jam, it's been his stupid penalties in deep coverage, and I've thought he was a liability for it.
This play reminds me of the play where Deion Branch, after Seneca threw a pick that would have sealed a game vs the Chiefs, ran over to the LB who had picked the ball, stripped it on the sideline, and recovered it himself to keep the drive alive. We ultimately lost that game, and Branch ultimately wasn't a good player for us, but plays like that impress me.
