Lynn Intercepts POG Honor

D'Anton Lynn grabbed his second Huddle Up Player of the Game honor this season, with honorable mention going to back up quarterback Matt McGloin.

With a team high 10 tackles (six solo), half tackle for loss and a momentum-shifting 58-yard interception, D'Anton Lynn grabbed his second Player of the Game honor this season.

Here are some fan comments on Lynn's performance:

"I voted for Lynn. His play was solid, and that INT & return was a thing of beauty."

"Had to go with Lynn, his INT completely changed the game."

"I ended up going with Lynn because of his INT and long return. He is really coming into his own this year."

Here is how the voting broke down:

D'Anton Lynn: 31%
Derek Moye: 22%
Silas Redd: 14%
Matt McGloin: 13%
Malcolm Willis: 8%
Rob Bolden: 8%
