Falcons trivia: Who has the longest interception return in team history?

New, comments

It was a tremendous play, and it may not be the player you think it is.

It’s Trivia Wednesday, which is not as alliterative as I had hoped it would be. Today’s question comes on the defensive side of the ball and features a mark that will be difficult to best.

Who has the longest interception return in team history? If it’s at all helpful (and it probably won’t be for most), it’s 101 yards, or seven yards off the NFL record held by the immortal Ed Reed. The player in question was not a one-play wonder, either, as he was a good defender for the Falcons for close to a decade.

Deion Jones is tied for the third-longest return with 90 yards, in case you were curious. Bonus points if you can tell me the second-longest return and the man Debo is tied with.
