The Cardinals 41-20 loss to the Denver Broncos is not one of the games fans will want to remember. That said, this play by Calais Campbell is definitely worth noting. At the time, Denver held a 14-6 lead midway through the second quarter. Peyton Manning attempted a screen to Montee Ball, but Campbell was ready. He snagged the pass en route and then took it back 23 yards to Denver’s five yard line. Andre Ellington would go on to score a touchdown that brought the score to 14-13.

This play is Campbell’s highlight moment of an impressive 2014 season. He was the Cardinals best defensive player and was the first Card one picked in the Pro Bowl draft. He showed his awareness and instinctive ability to make plays with this interception. Honestly, it’s just fun to see a big guy who does all the dirty work without all the stats get the chance to do something fun like this.
