Jabrill Peppers forces beautiful fumble with perfectly-executed hit
Jabrill Peppers has a nose for the football.
The former All-American Michigan defender and defensive playmaker is now in the NFL with the New York Giants. He’s still finding ways to get to the ball and forced a turnover on Monday Night Football.
It started with a short completion to a Cowboys receiver on a crossing route. He cleanly made a catch but was running into the path of Peppers afterward.
Peppers lined him up and delivered a perfect helmet-to-ball hit as the player arrived. Though the receiver tried to spin away at the last second, Peppers’ beautiful hit was directly on the ball and popped it free.
The Giants recovered to takeover possession:
