It's been a rookie season to forget for Darqueze Dennard. The 24th-overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft ,played in a grand total of 61 defensive snaps this season, and was never used extensively with so many talented corners already on the roster.

However, in what little time he did get, Dennard did manage to make some notable plays. The first of which came in Week 3 during a win over the Titans. Dennard came off a cornerback blitz to sack Jake Locker, a rare feat for any DB in this year's defense.

Then came the wild-card round of the playoffs. With Dre Kirkpatrick battling an ankle injury, Dennard was given more snaps, and he made a crucial play towards the end of the first half. As running back Dan Herron was running for a first down with the Colts in position to score before halftime, Dennard took a swipe at the ball, and...well.....he got all ball(s):

It's clear Dennard was going for the football, and he ended up forcing the fumble, which Cincinnati recovered and got a field goal off to cut Indy's lead to 13-10 at halftime.
