Secret Superstars: Wild Card

The playoffs always push the level of excitement about football even higher and, with just four games in each of the first two weeks, storylines are pushed harder and harder. In the Wild Card round we saw Ray Lewis’ last dance in Baltimore and Robert Griffin III’s horrible injury in Washington.

We’re mixing it up a little bit for the playoffs, this time focusing on a Secret Superstar from each game.

Glover QuinS, Houston Texans

Houston Texans safety Glover Quin featured on Secret Superstars earlier in the season and, with another impressive performance in the team’s home win over the Cincinnati Bengals, has earned a spot in our first postseason edition. Bouncing back from a poor performance on the road against Indianapolis to end the regular season, Quin had his best performance of the season, in terms of pass coverage at least, in Sunday’s game.

Frequently matched up against tight end Jermaine Gresham and shifty slot receiver Andrew Hawkins, Quin more than held his own, giving up just two receptions for 13 yards from the six passes thrown into his coverage. His number of receptions allowed was matched with two passes broken up, both coming against Gresham. Between his time at safety and his time covering the slot, Quin played 27 snaps in coverage, allowing a mere 0.48 yards per snap. Highlighting his play in coverage was his pass breakup against Gresham on 2nd-and-11 with 3:01 left in the game, as Quin able to get his hands in front of the tight end just as he reached for the pass.
