Quarterback Robert Griffin III felt the pressure from defensive end
"We just had tight coverage and we were scrambling. They were going no-huddle, and we were kind of in a double-team on my side so when the receiver went out I was free, and I just saw the ball floating in the air and I was like, 'Is this real life? Wow.' I didn’t care if I had to run into my own teammate, I wanted to go up and try to make a play and end the game, and that’s what happened."
Boykin made a beautiful over-the-shoulder grab for his team-high fourth interception of the season. In fact, it was the second straight week Boykin made a crucial interception in the end zone. The Eagles defense, which held their seventh straight opponent to 21 points or fewer, forced a pair of turnovers in the red zone.
"I couldn’t believe it. I don’t know what happened," Boykin said. "I think Fletcher Cox disrupted it and it kind of helicoptered out, so definitely a great job by him getting it out. That’s how we get turnovers- the defensive line.
"When the ball was in the air, it was really slow. A lot of thoughts when through my head. When I got it, I tried to make sure my feet were inbounds so I looked down, and I was good. I heard everybody cheering so it was good."
Yes, Boykin sent the 69,144 fans into jubilation with the 24-16 win.
