You May Have Missed It: Melvin Ingram’s First Half Sack

You just might have missed Melvin Ingram‘s first half sack of his career. It was definitely easy to miss.

Brandon Weeden rolls out on the play and didn’t see anyone open, so he tried to scramble for a little to try and keep the clock rolling. Melvin and Shaun Phillips arrived at the same time to hit a sliding Weeden. Mel looks like he put a harder hit on Shaun than he did on Weeden. I am also surprised that there was not another penalty on Melvin for the hit.

The rookie’s first half sack is not exactly Melvin beating the tackle off of the edge and getting a clean hit on a quarterback standing in the pocket. Can we just give that first half sack back and save it for a more dramatic occasion?

The rookie keeps making plays when he is on the field. He deflected another pass in the game that should have been intercepted for a touchdown, but it was “no hands” Atari Bigby trying to make the play. Keep Mel on the field and good things happen.

    I yelled at my TV “NO!!!”when I saw that play I thought it would definitely be the 3rd time a Melvin Ingram roughing the passer penalty would extend an opponents drive and lead to another TD at leat this time it wasn’t his fault they lost like it was in New Orleans

    So funny… it kinda looks like he is desperately trying to beat Phillips to Weeden… much like a hyena tries to beat a pack member to a carcas. I wonder if he got up and said… “Deamn…Why you gotta have a piece of everything, Shawn”? LMAO!
