SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU and current Los Angeles Chargers defensive back Michael Davis picked off Cincinnati Bengals quarterback with an impressive one-handed interception.

The Bengals hosted the Chargers on Sunday, December 5.

With 4:35 left in the first quarter, Burrow unloaded a deep pass to Ja’Marr Chase. The rookie wide receiver bobbled the ball and it bounced into the air. Davis hauled in an interception with an amazing one-handed grab by his right arm.

It was Davis’ first interception this season.

Five plays later, the Chargers turned the turnover into a touchdown to take a 16-0 lead.

During the opening quarter, Davis had two tackles, two pass breakups, and an interception.

The former BYU standout entered the game with 34 total tackles, 26 solo tackles, two fumble recoveries, and two pass breakups this season.

During his five-year NFL career, Davis has recorded 204 total tackles, 159 solo tackles, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, five interceptions, 34 pass breakups, and one touchdown.

Los Angeles’ game against Cincinnati is broadcast on CBS.
