Defensive MVP – Harrison Smith
What can’t Harrison Smith do? Seriously. Any situation he is in, Mike Zimmer can ask him to perform just about any task and he can complete it effectively and open up his teammates to perform other tasks.
His versatility is something praised often and it was in full display this week. Smith lit up the stat sheet in just about every category possible in this game. Check out this awesome list of things he accomplished this week:
- Six tackles (five solo)
- One tackle for loss
- One pass defense
- One forced fumble
- One fumble recovery
He became the first player since Antoine Winfield in 2008 to register at least one tackle for loss, pass defense, forced fumble, and fumble recovery in a game…and he completed all this in one half of play.
Harrison Smith is a dominant player and one that can quickly change the scope of a game. Even with a secondary struggling for depth, Minnesota was able to hold their own against a great offense like Green Bay…and a lot of that is thanks to the 6’2 safety.
