Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Jeremy Lane Returns Interception 54 Yards

Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane picked off a Landry Jones pass and returned it 54 yards.

The Pittsburgh Steelers lined up for a field goal to start the second quarter of Sunday's game at CenturyLink Field, but needed just two yards for a first down and elected to execute a fake instead, as backup quarterback Landry Jones took the snap and tossed a ball to his left intended for left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, who was an eligible receiver on the play. 

Enter Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane, active today for the first time all season after starting the year on the team's physically unable to perform (PUP) list following arm and knee injuries suffered in Super Bowl XLIX. Lane, who had Villanueva in coverage, lept up in the air, snagged Jones' pass, and returned it 54 yards the other way to help set up Seattle's first score of the game.
