Linebacker Luke Kuechly became the first NFL player in 18 years to intercept passes on consecutive plays – returning the first one for a touchdown – but it was safety Kurt Coleman who emphatically started the onslaught that added up to a 33-14 victory at the Dallas Cowboys.
On the third snap of the game, Coleman stepped in front of a Tony Romo pass over the middle, picked it off, and didn't stop there. Coleman cut toward the left sideline, then cut slightly right inside the 20 to avoid a tackler, then cut clear across the field and weaved his way into the end zone.
Coleman, signed as a free agent last offseason, ended with regular season with seven interceptions, one shy of the team record.
