Brown’s Best – Week 10

Posted by Chris Brown on November 10, 2008 – 5:26 pm

BEST AWARENESS: Roscoe Parrish – The Bills slot receiver converted a 3rd-and-7 on Buffalo’s opening drive breaking a pair of tackles and stretching for the first down stick.

BEST OPEN FIELD TACKLE: Reggie Corner – Covering Wes Welker, Corner closed the space on a receiver screen and dropped the slot receiver for no gain.

BEST ANTICIPATION: Bryan Scott – The safety quickly recognized the end around play to Randy Moss and dropped the wideout for a two-yard loss.

BEST PASS BREAKUP – Terrence McGee – His shot on intended receiver Ben Watson as the tight end tried to make the catch jarred the ball loose for an incompletion on a 3rd-and-9 forcing the Patriots to settle for a field goal.

BEST LEG: Rian Lindell – The Bills kicker had a pair of touchbacks to help keep New England’s number one ranked kick return unit from making a big play.

BEST TOUCH: Brian Moorman – The Bills punter may have had his most consistent day of the season with four punts pinning the Patriots inside their 20-yard line. His best kick was probably his 36-yard placement punt that his coverage unit downed at the New England three-yard line.

BEST COVERAGE TACKLE: Jon Corto – The linebacker knifed in low at Ellis Hobbs and dropped him for just a 13-yard return. Copeland Bryan had an assist on the play.

BEST RED ZONE STOP: Ryan Denney/Ko Simpson – The two defenders stopped BenJarvus Green-Ellis on a 3rd-and-2 at the Bills 19-yard line for no gain against forcing the Patriots to take a field goal in the third quarter.

BEST THIRD DOWN STOP: Marcus Stroud – On a 3rd-and-1 Stroud beat his man to take down Kevin Faulk for a three-yard loss to force a punt.

BEST KEEP HOPE ALIVE PLAY: George Wilson/Marcus Stroud – The safety and defensive tackle combined for a sack on Matt Cassel in the fourth quarter. Stroud forced the fumble and Wilson recovered the ball at the Bills 44-yard line down 13-3 to give the offense an extra possession.

BEST RETURN: Leodis McKelvin – His 85-yard return gave the offense an additional chance to put points on the board late in an effort to make a run at the Patriots in the waning moments.

BEST NOSE FOR THE BALL: Ryan Denney, Ko Simpson, Kawika Mitchell – All three finished with 11 tackles on the day to lead the team and were active from start to finish on a day when Buffalo’s defense logged a lot of time on the field.

BEST EXECUTION: James Hardy/Trent Edwards – It came a little too late, but Edwards best throw went right where it should go to Hardy’s backside shoulder on the touchdown reception late.
