SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes and current Miami Dolphins safety Eric Rowe picked off Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff for his first interception of the 2020 NFL season.

The Dolphins hosted the Rams at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida on Sunday, November 1.

With 4:51 left in the second quarter, Goff was hit as he threw the ball towards Rams receiver Gerald Everett. Rowe broke on the ball and picked off the pass.

The former Utah defensive back returned the ball four yards to the Miami 26-yard line.

It was Rowe’s first interception of the year and the fourth pick of his six-year NFL career.
