6. Kyle Hamilton, Brandon Stephens, and Geno Stone cannot be slept on anymore

If you have a friend who calls himself or herself a fan of the NFL, ask that person if he knows Kyle Hamilton (probable), Brandon Stephens (not so probable), and Geno Stone (very improbable).

If the answer is not 100% positive, then I'm sorry to tell you that your friend is a fake fan.

Hamilton made history last weekend by racking up three sacks in a single half of play against the Colts. He had never sacked a quarterback in college, and he had only completed two sacks through the full 2022 season. Welp.

Something Hamilton had not done in the NFL at all was intercepting a pass. It took him a while, we must say, but he did it on the last play of the game when he added another (the third) pick to Dorian Thompson-Robinson's Sunday tally.

Brandon Stephens has been said to "lack ball skills," meaning he cannot track a flying ball. Well, let me tell you he might not agree with that after intercepting DTR off a deflected pass by Arthur Maulet.

Just in case you missed it, he returned that pick all the way upfield for a 52-yard gain that could be considered 75% of the touchdown the Ravens would score right after that.

And then, there is Geno Stone who also intercepted the rookie Browns quarterback to welcome him in a warm way to the NFL.

I'm going to give you a pass for not recognizing at least one of those names before Sunday's win. From now on, though, there are no excuses for you not to do so.
