Jets’ Ed Reed gets a big interception against Dolphins (GIF)

The Miami Dolphins were playing for their playoff lives in Week 17. They needed a win to try and get into the playoffs as the final wild card seed in the AFC. The New York Jets have been eliminated and aren’t playing for much more than pride and maybe head coach Rex Ryan’s job.

The Jets were leading the Dolphins 17-7 late in the fourth quarter in South Beach when they got a big play from safety Ed Reed. The pass was tipped and Reed came out of nowhere to scoop it up.

He tried to return it and and got about 16 yards on the return. It includes a little nifty juke on a receiver. Meanwhile the Houston Texans, who released Ed Reed earlier in the season clinched the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft.
