Then on 4th down, he stayed with Blackmon well on the deep dig route, helping to force an errant throw (along with the pass rush.)
I saw Jjo with that thing on his knee & I almost freak'd... then I saw Ball in the game & I had that


look on my face.

Then he made that one play, knocking the ball out of Robinson's hands as he went to the ground & I was like.... all-right.

Kj's break up of that TD was another where turning to look for the ball would have been bad.
