TAMPA, Fla. – Former Ute and current New Orleans Saints defensive back Marcus Williams intercepted Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston and returned the ball 55 yards for a touchdown.

Williams’ pick-six came in the fourth quarter of the Saints’ game on Sunday, November 17.

The former Utah safety caught a pass that sailed over the head of the Bucs intended receiver and sprinted down the sideline for a Saints TD.
