Bowman and Brooks. If A. Brooks didn't bat that pass down it would be at the 1 or a TD. That receiver was open in the corner.
Yep. That was a huge play.
If you guys didn't notice, Patrick Willis made that last play happen. They knew it was going to Roddy so Willis quickly got underneath the curl right at the 4 or 5 yard mark. Matt Ryan had to reload to throw it to the left of Willis which forced Roddy to move closer to try and separate from Bowman.
Greater play by Willis than it was by Bowman because even if Roddy catches that, Bowman tackles him 1 yard short.
All four of our linebackers are beasts. The Four Horsemen will ride once more on Superbowl Sunday, and lead us to victory! Our linebackers remind me of the four great linebackers the Saints had under Fangio in the late 80's.
I like ours better though.

I just wanted to give props where props are due. This guy took over on that last drive and single-handedly sealed the game for us by knocking down 2 passes out of the last 3 plays. (Pun not intended).
So glad we locked this guy up long term! Him and Patrick are the heart and soul of our defense.
