Brent Grimes Makes Sick One Handed Interceptions Versus Lions


Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford orchestrated a last-minute drive to beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday 20-16. But before the rally, Stafford tried to connect with his favorite target, wide receiver Calvin Johnson, on a pass to the end zone in the second quarter. However, Dolphins’ cornerback Brent Grimes made an incredible one-handed interception of Stafford along the sideline. Grimes’ interception helped prevent the Lions from going up 10-0 before halftime. The 5’10 cornerback seemingly defied gravity on his play, but overall Megatron could not be contained by the Dolphins’ defense. Johnson finished the game with seven receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown.

After the victory, Stafford told the press, “I just love that feeling. It’s a good feeling for a quarterback to have the ball in his hands at the end of the game,” Stafford said. “By no means are we playing perfect, but we’re finding ways to win games.”

Another Stafford Late Rally

The Dolphins-Lions matchup was a back and forth contest for most of the afternoon. It featured plenty of missed opportunities and timely defense. The Lions trailed by three when they received the ball on their 26-yard line with 3:13 left in the game. Stafford put together a precision drive that kicked off with 20-yard receptions to Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. On the game-deciding play, Stafford scrambled to his left to find an open receiver. At the last minute, Stafford found running back Theo Riddick for an 11-yard touchdown. The play was reviewed, and the call was upheld, giving the Lions a 20-16 lead with only 29 seconds left. They held on for the dramatic, come-from-behind win.


Great Play in Tough Loss

The Dolphins lost in the final minute of a game for the second time in a month. The Green Bay Packers scored a touchdown with three seconds left to beat them earlier in the month. Brent Grimes may had made an incredible one handed interception, but he was more concerned about the team loss. He said, “We weren’t thinking about the Packers game. We were thinking about this game. We didn’t win, so it didn’t go the way we wanted it to.” “Matt Stafford, their receivers made plays. I take my hat off to them.”
