Indianapolis Colts safety Julian Blackmon has been named to ‘PFF’s NFL Week 5: Team of the Week’ following his performance in Sunday’s big win against the Tennessee Titans.
Blackmon finished with 5 tackles (4 solo), but no play was bigger than his game-clinching interception off Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill with thirty seconds left in the game:
Per PFF, Blackmon earned a +90.9 overall defense grade—including a +91.1 pass coverage grade against the Titans.
On the season, Blackmon has a +72.1 overall grade and a +73.6 coverage grade (*good for 20th best among all players at his position).
While he’s been known more for his hard-hitting playing style at safety, Blackmon has shown the ability to fly to the football in the passing game and be a ballhawk out there in coverage.
He called ‘ballgame’ this past Sunday.
