Taron Johnson’s 101-yard interception return gives Bills 17-3 lead

Rams coach Sean McVay reflects on the adversity his team faced during the season and harps on the missed opportunities Los Angeles had in its loss to Green Bay.

The Ravens were within 9 yards of tying the Bills. A hundred and one yards later, they are down 17-3.

On third-and-goal, Lamar Jackson tried to hit Mark Andrews over the middle. Instead, Jackson threw a perfect pass to Taron Johnson, who ran 101 yards the other way.

Johnson’s interception return tied for the longest in postseason history. Packers defensive back George Teague had a 101-yard interception return against the Lions in 1993.

It was Jackson’s first career red-zone interception. He had 49 touchdowns and no interceptions in the red zone in his career including the playoffs before the ill-fated throw to Johnson.

Jackson is 14-for-23 for 162 yards and an interception. He has taken three sacks, including two by Jerry Hughes.

Hughes pressured Jackson on the play before the interception, forcing Jackson to miss a wide-open Hollywood Brown.
