Prior to this season, Lardarius Webb had just two interceptions in his career. The cornerback matched that mark with his second pick in as many games this season.
After intercepting St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford in last Sunday’s 37-7 shellacking, Webb stepped in front of a floater from New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and returned it 73 yards for the touchdown in the third quarter.
It was Webb’s first interception return for a score since his junior year at Division I-AA Nicholls State in 2007.
“We just needed to keep them out of the end zone,” said Webb, the organization’s third-round pick in 2009. “The defensive linemen had a great rush. The defensive line and linebackers had a great game. He [Sanchez] had to get the ball out in a split second the whole night. It just made it easier on us in the backfield. ‘Sizzle’ [outside linebacker Terrell Suggs] getting a rush helped me get my interception. I give love to all of them because it felt great.”
