After leading the NFL in interceptions with eight last season, free safety Ed Reed continued his ball-hawking ways, intercepting Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger twice.
It’s the 13th time in the seven-time Pro Bowler’s career that he had pulled in at least two interceptions in a game, which leads all active players. And Reed did it on his 33rd birthday.
“Just winning was enough for me,” said Reed, who is the franchise leader with 56 career interceptions. “That was the best present I could have. It’s just a blessing to be playing a child’s game at this point of my career, my life.”
