Kwon Alexander's playing his best game with a heavy heart

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Kwon Alexander has an interception, ripped a ball out of Julio Jones' hands and had another takeaway called back because Jacquies Smith jumped offside. The rookie middle linebacker is having a huge game, but at the half Lovie Smith said that he was playing with a "heavy heart." That's because his little brother passed away a few days ago -- and Alexander didn't just decide to play, he had the best game of his life.

Rest in peace, and our thoughts to Kwon Alexander and everyone affected.
