Reed loses a yard, but interception return for TD still a record
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed intercepted two passes Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, returning the first pick 43 yards and taking the second an NFL-record 107 yards for a touchdown, breaking his own record of 106 yards.
Reed's 150 yards in interception returns in the game was a franchise record and only 56 yards fewer than the Eagles could muster in a 36-7 defeat.
His touchdown was originally recorded at 108 yards, but the Elias Sports Bureau formally changed it to 107 yards on Wednesday. Regardless, Reed's jersey and the football have been sent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
