“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.
Maxwell picked off Colin Kaepernick in the end zone to prevent the 49ers from scoring in the third quarter. He finished the game with five total tackles and three defended passes in a 19-17 victory.
