The 10 Most Impactful Plays of Week 3 - Joe Redemann
In just the second quarter and only about 30 yards from their own end zone, Brown and safety Adrian Phillips combined to sack quarterback Andrew Luck. While riding him to the ground, Brown ripped the ball out of Luck’s hands forcibly. On one bounce, defensive lineman Caraun Reid reeled the fumble in and returned it 61 yards for a game-tying score.
Top 10 Rookies Through NFL Week 3 - Michael Renner
