Atlanta Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins is making the most of his first NFC Championship Game appearance.
In the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers, the former LSU defense back stripped Green Bay fullback Aaron Ripkowski and recovered the fumble as Green Bay pushed toward the end zone.
The forced fumble and recovery preserved Atlanta’s 10-0 lead, and eventually led to a Falcons touchdown.

Collins is in his second year with Atlanta after the Falcons drafted him in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
He played at LSU from 2011-14, collecting 90 tackles and 3 interceptions.
