Indianapolis Colts: Can Jerrell Freeman Impact Potential Super Bowl Run?
Freeman helped Mathis hit Knile Davis to force a fumble in the second quarter. Then on the first drive of the second half, Mathis hit Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith on third down and his pass wobbled up in the air. Freeman was there to intercept it, giving the Colts their second turnover of the day.
If that wasn’t enough, Freeman ended the day for the Chiefs when he intercepted Smith in the end zone on an excellent play. He was defending tight end Anthony Fasano and Smith tried to throw it over Freeman’s head for a touchdown pass to Fasano. Freeman made an excellent play, turning his body to tip it up to himself and intercepting it. Indianapolis led 23-7 at the time, and he destroyed any will KC had of coming back.
His play was nothing short of impressive as he had a forced fumble and two key interceptions. Freeman also led the team in tackles with five to give him the all-around good day award. If Indianapolis can keep getting that type of big game performance out of him, then they can make a run to the Super Bowl.
