New Orleans Saints Player Makes Unusual Backside Interception

New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore made an unusual interception of a Matt Ryan pass.

Lattimore intercepted a pass late in the second quarter against the Atlanta Falcons, using his buttocks to catch a ball that came to rest on his backside.

Teammates Marcus Williams and Craig Robertson came to assist in the grab.

The interception was Lattimore’s fifth of the season.

On social media, users immediately celebrated the catch, which will likely make its way into highlight videos in the near future.

Some compared it to the more-infamous “butt-fumble” from several years ago, where former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez ran into his own lineman on Thanksgiving Day, 2012.
