Former Oregon State star Jordan Poyer intercepts Russell Wilson originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest
The Seattle Seahawks were trailing 14-0 in the first quarter of Sunday’s matchup with the Buffalo Bills.
But Russell Wilson had the ball and the Seahawks were in the red zone.
On 4th-and-1, the MVP frontrunner threw the ball to Jacob Hollister, but instead, Jordan Poyer snagged the pass for his first interception of the season.

NFL Twitter praised Poyer for his clutch play.

There’s no denying Poyer has been playing at an All-Pro level this season. Prior to Sunday’s game, the veteran safety recorded 69 total tackles to go with 2.0 sacks, four tackles for loss, and a forced fumble at the midseason mark. Poyer is on pace for an incredible 138 stops.
The Bills currently lead the Seahawks 17-6 with 6:40 left in the second quarter after Wilson ran the ball in for a 1-yard touchdown, his first rushing touchdown of the year.
