Bennett broke the fall of a man who fell over a railing trying to grab a glove the player was handing to a child after Sunday night's win over the Green Bay Packers.

This isn't the first time Bennett has helped someone at a game. He said he rescued a ball boy at a Texas A&M game who was knocked down when the crowd rushed the court.
