WATCH: Jamie Collins shows off serious hops, hurdles line to block PAT
Jamie Collins has been called a freak several times, and not in a bad way. The New England Patriots linebacker is a freak of an athlete with ridiculous ability to make plays all over the field.
He showed that off Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts on this extra point attempt. Reminiscent of Kam Chancellor's hurdle in the playoffs last season, Collins hurdled the line and blocked former Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri's extra point to bring the Colts within six.
It was an insane showing of athletic ability on Collins' part, further solidifying his place as being one of the best defenders not only on the Patriots' roster, but in the NFL, as well.
Here's what Bill Belichick had to say about the play after the game.
“The Colts' field-goal protection, they try to get real low and protect those guys from not getting knocked out of there by the defensive linemen,” Belichick said via Mike Reiss of ESPN. “I thought we had an opportunity to go over the top of them, and Jamie did and made a great play on it.”
Collins sure did make a great play on it, and while it didn't prove to be a pivotal play, it definitely could have had the Colts recovered the ensuing onside kick.
