Who Leads the NFL in Interceptions This Year?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Baltimore Ravens lost in Week 2, but they are certainly getting their return on investment with Marcus Williams. The former Utah defensive back picked off Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa twice in the first half on Sunday, becoming the first Raven ever to record three interceptions in the first two games of a season. His first interception as a Raven came in Week 1 against Joe Flacco’s Jets. Williams picked off Flacco and returned the ball for 33 yards. Four plays later, the Ravens took a 3-0 lead in their eventual 24-9 win. Williams is in his sixth NFL season and his first with Baltimore.
Jamel Dean’s two interceptions came on back-to-back possessions during the last 12 minutes of the Buccaneers’ win over the Saints. The Bucs came away with ten quick points, gaining the lead and setting up Mike Evans for the clutch pick-six.
Minkah Fitzpatrick’s interception during the Steelers’ 17-14 loss to the Patriots was his 13th in 38 games. In Week 1, he scored a touchdown on a pick-six against Joe Burrow and the Bengals.
Jordan Poyer’s second interception of the season came during the Bills’ blowout win over the Titans. Two Bills deflected Ryan Tannehill’s throw before Poyer impressively secured the tip drill interception.
Philly’s Darius Slay shined in Monday night’s win over the Vikings. He intercepted two Kirk Cousins passes meant for Justin Jefferson, along with one tackle and five pass breaks.
