Metcalf reached 22.64 miles per hour as he prevented Cardinals safety Budda Baker from reaching the end zone after an interception.
Cardinals safety Budda Baker appeared to have nothing but open field ahead as he attempted to return a Russell Wilson interception for a touchdown on Sunday, but there was one player on the field Baker couldn’t outrun.
Baker was chased down by wide receiver D.K. Metcalf as he crossed Seattle’s 10-yard line in the second quarter. And the play wasn’t caused by Metcalf simply being in the right place at the right time. Metcalf started his sprint roughly 10 yards behind Baker, needing to reach 22.64 miles per hour to catch the speedy safety. If the whole wide receiver thing doesn’t work, perhaps Metcalf has a future on the other side of the ball.
Metcalf’s hustle saved Seattle from more than the indignity of a pick-six. Arizona failed to score
