The Baltimore Ravens All-Pro had two interceptions, including the game-winner, in the team's playoff-clinching victory over the Cleveland Browns. Then his jacket caught fire while on the sideline because he was sitting too close to a heater:
Reed was unhurt. He later confirmed that his proximity to the heater is what caused the flames.
Though Ed neither stopped, dropped, nor rolled when his jacket caught on fire, his quick thinking in taking off the coat was a savvy, veteran move befitting of a future Hall of Famer. Somehow, I think there's a Baltimore fire safety PSA in his future.
