“It was a red zone play so I knew the ball was going to come out quickly,” Boykin said after the game. “I undercut the play, really took a risk undercutting it, was able to make a play and give our offense some good field position.”
Boykin sprinted and weaved across the field as he returned the interception 76 yards into Packers territory before he was run out of bounds by Packers tight end Brandon Bostick.
“I was mad at myself, especially being caught by a tight end,” said Boykin with a smile. “But (my teammates) were like, ‘He’s fast. He’s a good, athletic tight end.’ I ran a long way, so it’s all good.”
Even though starting cornerback
“I need Brandon to be a great nickel for us,” Davis said. “We had to put him on Jordy Nelson and in order for him to step up and play a great game, putting him in nickel was the way to start.”
“In this particular game, with their best receiver being in the slot in Jordy, (Davis) didn’t want me mixing and matching, getting caught on the outside if they were going no-huddle or something,” Boykin said. “It worked out well. I still got a lot of plays. I got my share of plays.”
