Sprint Game Ball: David Harris

After such an ugly loss, it might seem difficult to single anybody out for excellent play, but it really is not. It's time to recognize Mr. Underappreciated on this defense, David Harris. While Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, and D'Brickashaw Ferguson are correctly identified as elite homegrown talent, Harris flies under the radar. It's not really a persona thing because only Revis of the first three is a big self-promoter.

The inside linebacker's abilities stopping the run in traffic and blitzing were again on full display Sunday against the Packers where he led the Jets with 9 tackles and 1 sack. He was one of the biggest reasons Gang Green shut down Green Bay's run game and stayed in a contest in which the offense was shut out.

Not only for his work Sunday, but also for quietly playing like an elite inside linebacker for years, David Harris gets my Sprint Game Ball.

Who gets your game ball?
