Lardarius Webb continued a sparkling 2011 campaign, recording his third interception of the postseason when he leaped into the air to snatch a Tom Brady pass intended for wide receiver Julian Edelman in the first quarter.
But the Ravens cornerback, who led the defense in interceptions with five in the regular season, took little solace in his performance in the playoffs.
“Wasn’t good enough,” he said simply.
Webb, who finished with six tackles and one pass breakup, was also flagged for illegal contact on New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker – a costly infraction that negated an interception by strong safety Bernard Pollard on the very same play.
“They called it,” Webb said. “Can’t take it back now.”Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
