Woodson the Interception Connection for 35 NFL QBs

Posted by Ricky Zeller on October 21, 2011 – 3:44 pm

Charles Woodson intercepted his 50th career pass against the Broncos in Week 4 and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown late in the first quarter. The TD was the 11th of his career off an interception, trailing only Rod Woodson’s 12 in NFL history.

When the Packers’ all-time defensive touchdown leader intercepted Cam Newton twice at Carolina in Week 2, Newton became the 35th NFL QB Woodson has picked off in his career, including his first eight seasons with the Raiders. Denver’s Kyle Orton had already been victimized by Woodson in 2008 at Soldier Field when the quarterback was with the Bears.

A look at some of the passers Woodson has picked off since the 14-year veteran entered the NFL in 1998:

Jon Kitna – Holds the distinction of being intercepted five times by Woodson, more than any other QB.

Joey Harrington – Miami’s passer was the first QB to be intercepted by Woodson after he signed with the Packers in ’06. It came six games into the cornerback’s career with Green Bay, and it also marked his first touchdown with the Packers, a 23-yard return.

Kitna, Matthew Stafford, Shaun Hill – The trio of Detroit passers have each been picked off by Woodson over the last three seasons, and each interception was returned for a TD. No NFL player has achieved the feat for three straight years against the same team. Kitna has since moved on to Dallas.

Jason Garrett – Woodson’s first NFL interception came off current Dallas head coach and former Cowboys’ QB on Sept. 27, 1998.

Vinny Testaverde, Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, Newton – Fellow Heisman Trophy winners Woodson has picked off.

Warren Moon – The lone NFL Hall of Fame inductee Woodson has intercepted. Moon entered Canton in 2006.

Kordell Stewart, Matt Hasselbeck, Kitna, Palmer, Stafford, Newton – The six QBs that Woodson has intercepted twice in a single game.
