Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Brandon Graham

Brandon Graham

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham had a career day on Sunday. It helped that he was facing a terrible New York Jets offense. Graham made 6 tackles, 3 sacks, and 5 total hits on the quarterback in the 31-6 victory.

Here’s some video, but keep in mind that the Tweeter (Fran Duffy, whoever that is) is inaccurate with his comments. Just enjoy the moving pictures:
