The third week of the preseason for the Arizona Cardinals has wrapped up with a 24-14 victory to christen the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
And it was a breakout preseason game for one specific individual who hauled in two touchdowns, including the play of the game below.

Now those are some ball skills.
If the Cardinals can see a healthy John Brown display that type of consistency and “go and get it” attitude to complement Fitzgerald, David Johnson, Jermaine Gresham and JJ Nelson, the Cardinals offense could be a juggernaut.
John Brown also hauled in an impressive long pass from Carson Palmer earlier in the game for another score:

He’s still listed as the 3rd WR behind Jaron Brown, but if Arians’ history of his offense is any attribution, it might not be long before we see John Brown passing up JJ Nelson once he is actually practicing with the team.
What was your favorite play of the game? Did you think the Honey Badger’s 2nd pick of the preseason deserved it more?
