Patrick Queen shows off soft hands on first career interception

Ravens

Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen entered this season with high expectations after being drafted in the first round of 2020 NFL Draft. And for the most part, he's held up in the middle of a sturdy Ravens defense.

Entering Tuesday night's game against the 3-8 Dallas Cowboys, Queen led the Ravens with 79 tackles while also adding two sacks, two forced fumbled and two fumble recoveries on the season. But one stat missing from his resume was an interception.

He checked that off the list with a beautiful fingertip catch of a deflected Andy Dalton pass in the second quarter.

Though the Ravens entered the game as favorites, they trailed the Cowboys by three at the time of Queen's interception. It came one series after Ravens kicker Justin Tucker missed a 36-yard field goal, snapping his NFL record of 70 straight made field goals inside of 40 yards.

Dallas was looking to build on its 10-7 lead, but the Queen pick quickly turned into points for the Ravens. Baltimore scored on the very next play, as Lamar Jackson connected with Miles Boykin for a 38-yard touchdown pass.
