Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes knows it's rare for a defensive player to get into the end zone. Therefore, he savored every moment of his pick-six Sunday off Jacksonville rookie quarterback Blake Bortles. Grimes had a 22-yard interception return for a touchdown in the third quarter and gave the football to his wife, Miko Grimes, as a keepsake. It was Grimes’ second career touchdown in eight seasons. "You know, I always do that," Grimes said, laughing.
Defensive lineman Jared Odrick said he was cheering the whole way for his teammates to get in the end zone during Miami’s interception returns. Grimes’ 22-yard return was of the shorter variety. But safety Louis Delmas had an 81-yard return in the second quarter that opened the scoring. "It's an awesome thing," Odrick said after the game.
Delmas said he was gassed after his 81-yard return. "Dead tired," Delmas said, laughing. "I never thought I'd be out of shape. But I definitely have to go back to Miami and rush a couple gassers."
