“Back-Up of the Game” is safety Sergio Brown
This week’s “Back-Up of the Game” presented by Venyu is safety Sergio Brown.
All week the Colts talked about the importance that field position would play in taking on the undefeated Denver Broncos.
It was the Colts special teams that dominated the field position category with Sergio Brown on top of his game at the gunner position.
Late in the first quarter, Brown found himself in the perfect place to make a game-changing turnover.
Denver punt returner Trindon Holiday fielded a McAfee punt at the Colts seven-yard line before changing fields up the far sideline.
Colts fullback Stanley Havili was there to strip Holiday and Brown recovered the bouncing ball, which set up the Colts first touchdown of the evening.
Brown had a pair of special teams tackles and downed two Pat McAfee punts inside of the Broncos 10-yard line.
The special teams phase wasn’t the only area that Brown impacted the game.
With the Colts thin in the secondary, Brown played spot duty at the safety position in the second half and added another tackle.
