New York Giants outside linebacker Devon Kennard came away with arguably the most impressive defensive play of the Giants' season Sunday in the first half of the team's Week 4 game at Buffalo.

Kennard was matched up in coverage on Bills tight end Charles Clay, who was targeted down the left sideline on a wheel route. Kennard made a leaping interception after ripping the ball out of Clay's hands. Pretty impressive for a 260-pound man.

Earlier this offseason, Giants captain Jon Beason said Kennard had the potential to emerge as the Giants' best defender in 2015. The 2014 fifth-round pick has indeed become a force -- he can rush the passer, stop the run and (clearly) hold his own in pass coverage.
