This probably didn't tickle


Dec 18, 2021

Darius Leonard wasn’t satisfied simply intercepting Mac Jones in the second quarter of Saturday night’s game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts linebacker threw salt on the wound by stiff arming Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers into next week on the ensuing runback.

Leonard actually lost yardage on the return, but the pick still was crucial. It helped keep the Patriots off the scoreboard, ending a streak of 99 consecutive games with first-half points for New England.

And that stiff arm? Yikes.
