Peters’ incredible interception makes SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
On a day where several Ravens starred in Baltimore’s 33-16 victory over the Houston Texans, it was cornerback Marcus Peters who had the play of the day.
With Baltimore up 20-7 with just a few minutes before halftime, Deshaun Watson and the Texans were driving, hoping to trim the Ravens lead just before the intermission.
On first-and-10 from its own 48, Houston ran a play-action pass where Watson thought he had an open Brandin Cooks across the middle toward the left sideline. Watson fired a strike in Cooks’ direction, but never saw Peters, who came flying across the middle to intercept the pass.
Peters’ interception would not lead to any Baltimore points, but it did halt a Houston drive that perhaps could have changed the outcome of the game if the Texans had found the end
