Marcus Williams Picks Off Daniel Jones In Saints OT Loss To Giants
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah and current New Orleans safety Marcus Williams continues to make plays for the Saints secondary as he gets another interception.
Late in the first half, Daniel Jones of the New York Giants threw a deep ball down the field and Marcus Williams picked it off and returned it three yards to their own five-yard line. The score was tied at seven heading into halftime.
The Giants outscored the Saints 11-7 in the fourth quarter to force overtime when Saquon Barkley ran in the game-winning touchdown.
