3. Number three play. Number one dance
John Brown’s rookie year in Arizona is one of the fondest memories Cardinal’s fans can have of 2014. Despite being a third round pick, Brown showed that he is a legitimate member of the ridiculously talented 2014 rookie receiver group. His speed was never a secret, but his well-developed instincts and hands turned him into a weapon.
Don’t buy it? The St. Louis Rams defenders have experienced it firsthand. The Cards were having a problem getting over the Rams in their Week 10 game in Arizona. The score was 14-10 in the middle of the fourth quarter. Drew Stanton took a snap from the Rams 48 yard line.
Drew Stanton stepped up in the pocket and slung the ball to Brown, who leaped up and into the endzone and held the ball for a score. The play was great, and important, but it gets bonus points for the touchdown dance. A dance so good, the NFL AM crew gave him an award for it.
