Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne made a few highlight reel catches on Sunday night during a 20-12 victory over the New York Giants, but it was his interception-turned-touchdown that has the media buzzing today. Unfortunately for Aaron Ross, who had an easy interception on a drastically under-thrown ball, it's been like the equivalent of being "poster-ized" by a dunk in the NBA.
Following the game, Ross admitted it was a ball he should have caught, but explains that it simply got lost in the stadium lights.
"Oh yeah, I knew it was a pick. I saw it leave his hands and then as soon as I looked up, the lights just took the ball away," Ross said. "I couldn’t see anymore and that’s what kind of made me fall. As soon as I fell back, it hit my hands and it kind of shocked me. So it just popped up and I turned around and Reggie was catching the ball. One of those plays you can’t get back."
Leading up to that touchdown, Ross had been quite active and was making some plays. After that however, he seemed to slip a bit and never recovered. Luckily, it was merely a preseason game and didn't really cost the team anything other than the humiliation of watching it replayed over and over again.
