MASTER THIEF

Friday - 10/20/2000

Rod Woodson is tied with Ken Houston for most TDs on INTs in NFL history with nine (four INT-TD as a Raven). He has 57 career INTs, one ahead of Eugene Robinson (Carolina) for first place among active interceptors. His 16 picks as a Raven are a team record, and he tied for the NFL lead last season with seven thefts. He is currently tied for ninth on the league’s all-time interception list. He has three interceptions this season, tied for second in the AFC. The Ravens are 10-5 when Woodson records an interception. Woodson and Lem Barney are the only two players in NFL history with at least 50 career interceptions, at least 1,000 interception return yards and at least seven TDs on interceptions.

Rod has seven career interceptions vs. the Tennessee/Houston franchise, the second-most vs. any other NFL team (after Cincinnati, 10). He has three interceptions off of Steve McNair, including a 47-yarder for a TD in last December’s win. That TD tied him with Ken Houston for the all-time NFL lead for interceptions returned for touchdowns (nine).
