VIDEO: Budda Baker’s hot mic reaction to DK Metcalf catching Cardinals safety on long interception return
Baker picked off Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in the second quarter of Arizona’s overtime win on Sunday. He seemingly had nothing but green grass in front of him en route to the end zone. But Metcalf had other ideas.
The Seahawks wideout made an unbelievable hustle play, sprinting the length of the field to bring Baker down just before the goal line. Baker could not believe it, with hot mics picking up his reaction.
The Cardinals earned a hard-fought win, but DK’s play was among the biggest stories following the game.
Metcalf drew reactions from around the league. Arizona defensive back Patrick Peterson said he looked like a gazelle running down the sidelines.
"He looked like an over-sized gazelle running down the sideline."

Budda and the Cardinals got the last laugh, but Metcalf’s chase-down will undoubtedly go down as one of the plays of the year.
