After a quiet start to his rookie campaign, Ji’Ayir Brown’s coming out party came in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With Talanoa Hufanga leaving the game due to injury, Steve Wilks and the 49ers defense needed to lean on Brown in the secondary against Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and the Bucs.
Despite giving up a gain to Rakim Jarrett, Brown shined when the Bucs were approaching the end zone. After forcing the Bucs off the field with a clutch pass deflection against Evans on fourth down, Brown didn’t wast much time securing the first interception of his NFL career.
Again with the Bucs near the end zone, the former Penn State Nittany Lion came away with an interception on a deflected pass from Baker Mayfield. Behind Brown’s interception, the 49ers ended the Bucs’ hopes of a late comeback on Sunday in Week 11.
