Connor Barwin, Houston Texans

When your team is down to its third-string quarterback (and throw in the added bonus of said quarterback being a rookie taking his first NFL snaps), it's basically up to the defense to make a stand to deliver victory.

Up 20-10 going into the half, the Texans learned they'd be without starter Matt Leinart, who'd been making his first start of the season in the place of the Texans' regular starter Matt Schaub.

With untested rookie T.J. Yates now operating the offense, the Texans' defense was forced to step it up. The much-improved unit did so in a big way, led by Barwin's massive four-sack, seven-tackle effort, stonewalling the Jaguars' offense and preserving the 20-13 victory.

Just imagine this defense with Barwin on one side and Mario on the other next year.
Scary, indeed.
