Monday Night Football
Jones goes the distance
On Monday, quarterback Drew Brees was trying to rally his New Orleans Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when they faced the Atlanta Falcons. However, Falcons linebacker Deion Jones had other plans with this 90-yard pick-six. Atlanta went on to beat New Orleans, 45-32.

Not bad from the rookie out of Louisiana State University. Brees had gone 305 passes without an interception, but it all came to an end.
Falcons LB Deion Jones stood out at the Senior Bowl workouts last January. Moves like a strong safety. Speed…

Hit of the week? Or hit of the year?
On Saturday, University of Minnesota defensive end Tai’yon Devers laid the smackdown on Colorado State University quarterback Collin Hill, sending his helmet airborne. You can’t blame the quarterback for losing the ball when he couldn’t hold on to his helmet. The hit was the hardest we’ve seen, but Hill managed to stay in the game.
