San Diego Chargers DE Dwight Freeney and Houston Texans LT Duane Brown have met a lot throughout the years from Freeney’s days in Indianapolis. They have battled it out a number of times and Brown knows the challenge that he is about to face on Monday Night.
“He’s got a little bit of everything, he’s about 6’1”, he’s pretty heavy so he plays with great leverage, Brown continued. “(He’s) very good at hand placement, he gets his hands inside on your chest he can get a pretty good bull rush. He’s still as dominant as he was in his younger years.”
When asked how he’ll prepare for blocking defensive end Freeney, Brown said, “Study my film from years past and get ready for a challenge.” – Houston CBS Local
Brown can keep his eyes focused on Freeney the whole time, but he better not forget about the other playmakers on the Chargers defensive line. The Chargers have a number of guys on that defensive front that can get pressure on the quarterback. Corey Liuget, Kendall Reyes and Cam Thomas all can put pressure on quarterbacks and we should be able to present a good pass rush against the Texans.
This should be a fun part of the game to watch.
