Former Utah safety Eric Weddle had an impactful day Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens’ 44-20 win over the Detroit Lions.

Weddle started at free safety and had his fourth career pick-six when he intercepted Detroit backup quarterback Jake Rudock and returned the pick 45 yards for a touchdown with 2:26 remaining. It was his first interception return for a touchdown since 2012.

He also had a sack and a forced fumble in the second quarter, stripping Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford of the ball on a third-and-7 play at the Baltimore 41. The Ravens recovered and scored a touchdown six plays later to go up 17-0.

Weddle finished with three tackles, including two solo stops, and a pass deflection in the game as well. The 11-year pro had fun with the media following the win.

In addition to headline-making days from former BYU backfield teammates Jamaal Williams and Taysom Hill, former Southern Utah cornerback LeShaun Sims also came up with a big moment Sunday for the Tennessee Titans in their 24-13 victory over the Houston Texans.

Sims intercepted a pass in the end zone intended for Houston star receiver DeAndre Hopkins with 1:08 remaining and Tennessee leading 17-13. Sims made the diving grab for his first interception of the season and second of his career.

“What a big play,” Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo said of the interception, according to the team's website. “Yeah, LeShaun is a quiet guy. Even since that pick I haven’t heard him say a word. He’s just smiling. But that’s how he is, he is quiet and when his number is called he goes out there and makes a play. And he made a big play today.”

He also had two tackles, including a solo stop, and a pass deflection for the Titans, who at 8-4 are chasing a playoff berth.
