I don't see many DBs playing it that way. But since the rule change, it's the highest percentage play imo.
I agree, Kj did an excellent job forcing the receiver to the back line & keeping his eyes on him.
It happens from time to time.
Jackson did it against Dez Bryant once in his rookie year on a ball along the sideline. Bryant is big and tall and can jump. It was a good play by Jackson knowing that he can't outjump the receiver.
Also, JJo did it recently against the Denver's receiver, whatshisname (?) in the endzone. He was beat, but recovered enough give the receiver a shove before he can get both feet inbound.
