Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle DJ Reader was a near-unstoppable force during his team’s win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 12.
Cornerback Eli Apple is not about to let the world forget it, either.

None of that is unusual for Reader, but it was especially noticeable against a run-first team that wants to impose its will. Superstar Titans running back Derrick Henry managed just 38 carries on 17 attempts, good for a 2.2 average.
