Devin McCourty tips ball Marquice Cole for insane volleyball-style interception (Video)

Interception of the year? Sure, we'll nominate it.

The New England Patriots' defense didn't have a great first half against the Miami Dolphins, but it was an eventful second half, highlighted by a circus interception by Marquice Cole.

But Cole was only part of the equation. Devin McCourty had an insane tip of the ball while he was falling out of bounds straight to Cole — who did a great job of staying inbounds — for the pick.

Cole gets the credit for the interception , but don't forget the assist from McCourty. It was an amazing show of athleticism and awareness by McCourty to keep it alive.

Now for the ultimate question: Which tipped-ball interception was better, Cole's or the Oklahoma State pick from 2010?
