I'd like to add a couple more if that is okay?
Courtney Stephen has been outstanding this season. His recognition, reaction, closing speed and angle, and sure tackling have been a joy to watch. The kid is putting on a clinic.
Just before the third TD on the long pass play to Sinkfield, Ray Holley stepped up and made a perfect block on a free rushing Odel Willis. Stopped him cold. He saved Collaros from a vicious blind-side hit. That skill and that alone may be why he has gotten the start over other backs this season. Beautiful but sadly, seemingly unnoticed play.
Again, the Cats physically beat up their opponent. For most of the game (there was a little let up late third and for some of the fourth) every receiver and RB knew they were playing the Cats. The D was punishing the Eskies for daring to touch the ball.
Erik Harris spayed some stellar run D this game. Watching Bell stomp his feet and throw a little fit in frustration after a no-gain run was especially satisfying. Great game for the entire front 7.
The 2 and out by the Cats O to start the game was a little unnerving. Nerves didn't last long though.
