Maxwell is dealing with cramping. He's the third player on the club to leave with cramps. Maxwell is expected to return.
Maxwell picked off Aaron Rodgers in the third quarter, which led to a Seattle field goal. He finished the game with five total tackles (four solo) and defended two passes in a 36-16 victory. Going back to last year, he has five interceptions over his last five games.
“Byron plays with so much confidence and he’s such a good player,” safety Chris Maragos told the team's website. “He’s got the prototypical body you want in a corner (6-1, 207 pounds). He tackles well. He covers well. He runs well. He’s really playing really, really well.”
After getting his first career interception Week 14,
Maxwell finished with just one solo tackle, but he tied fellow cornerback Richard Sherman with a team-high three pass defenses. Sherman also had two interceptions of Eli Manning.
Maxwell continues to play well in the absence of Brandon Browner, who continues to sit out with a groin injury. Maxwell has totaled three interceptions and eight pass defenses in three December games.
