Will Levis Committed, and Forced, a Turnover in the Same Play

Will Levis is making the impossible, possible. Over the last three years the Big Blue Nation has watched the talented quarterback do the spectacular and the ridiculous. He wrapped it all up in one play Sunday afternoon for the Tennessee Titans.

Facing pressure (like almost every other drop-back this season) the former Kentucky quarterback’s pass was altered by the hit. Most quarterbacks would have stared mindlessly as the ball fluttered through the air. Not Will Levis.

The quarterback sprinted down the field. Colts linebacker Samson Ebukam was left with little time to react after the interception. Levis lowered his shoulder, forced a fumble and recovered it. He literally took the ball back from the defense right after giving it away.

As you’ll see on the replay, officials did not whistle the play dead, so he hustled and sprinted all the way into the end zone. Replay overturned the touchdown, however, his heroics moved the chains on third down and the Titans were able to finish the drive with a field goal to take the lead near the end of the first quarter.

That wasn’t the only amazing play Levis made in the first quarter of Sunday’s divisional matchup with the Colts. On another third down, the former Kentucky quarterback used his legs to do something we saw so many times during his time in Lexington. Levis leapt over two defenders, then used his shoulder to smack a third backwards and somehow reach the line to gain.

What can’t Will Levis do?
