WATCH: Patriots CB Myles Bryant snags pop-up interception on Gardner Minshew

The New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts were locked in a defensive battle on Sunday afternoon.

There weren’t too many highlights on either side of the football. However, Myles Bryant made sure to change that, as he recorded an interception that halted an Indianapolis drive.

It was their 15th turnover of the year for the Colts and Bryant’s first interception of the season at a time when New England needed it the most.

Unfortunately, New England was not able to do anything with the ensuing drive, as they missed a field goal. However, the defensive effort cannot be ignored.

The defense may have to step up for the rest of the game, as the New England offense has struggled all afternoon.
