Quarterback Baker Mayfield was traded out of Cleveland when the Browns decided to obtain Deshaun Watson in the offseason. But while Mayfield left the AFC North, the former No. 1 draft pick didn’t get away from Marlon Humphrey.
The Baltimore Ravens cornerback had two interceptions against Mayfield when they were division rivals.
On Sunday, Mayfield came to Baltimore with the Carolina Panthers, and Humphrey picked him off again in the Ravens’ 13-3 victory.
The interception was Humphrey’s second takeaway of the fourth quarter.
With Baltimore leading 6-3, the former Hoover High School star recovered a fumble at the Carolina 31-yard line with 8:14 to play, and the Ravens scored the game’s only touchdown three snaps later.
Humphrey got his third interception of the season and 11th of his career at the Panthers 41-yard line with 3:28 remaining.
Humphrey also made two tackles in the game as Baltimore limited Carolina to 205 yards and posted its fourth win in a row.
Humphrey was among the 40 former Alabama players who got on the field on the 11th Sunday of the NFL’s 103rd season.
