Former Penn State Football defensive back, Green Bay Packers safety Adrian Amos pulled down a big interception for the Green Bay Packers, off Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady at a pivotal juncture of Sunday’s NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field.

With the Buccaneers leading 28-17 and driving to extend their lead, Amos made an athletic play to intercept Brady, forcing the Packers’ first turnover of the game.

Amos’ interception came with just under 8:00 remaining in the third quarter, when Brady tried to hit wide receiver Mike Evans deep down the sideline, but slightly overthrew him and the former Penn State Football standout made him pay.

The Packers were able to convert Amos’ interception into a one-yard touchdown pass to Devante Adams, to pull Green Bay to within 28-23 with :24 remaining in the third quarter, following a failed two-point conversion attempt.

Sunday was the latest clutch performance for Amos, who had the most productive season of his career, finishing with 83 total tackles, a career-high two sacks, and two regular season interceptions.

Pro Football Focus lists Amos as the No. 2 ranked safety in the NFL, with an 89.1 overall grade, also naming him to the outlet’s 2020 All-Pro Team.
