Ravens marvel at Ed Reed

Here are some notes on safety Ed Reed, who grabbed two interceptions yesterday, giving him 56 picks in his career.

Reed now has recorded 12 dual-INT games in his career (13, including the playoffs), which is the most among active players. Not surprisingly, the Ravens are a perfect 12-0, (13-0 if you toss in that postseason game) in those contests.

The seven-time Pro Bowl safety didn't have to work too hard for those two picks, as both were silly throws by Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger which fluttered straight into Reed's arms, but it's incredible how the Ravens' safety always finds himself in the right spot at the right time.

Reed led the NFL in interceptions last year with eight, despite the fact he only played in 10 games. Yesterday, he got out to an early lead as he tries to defend his INT title this season.

Oh, yeah, and that performance yesterday came on the day Reed turned 33. As Williams said after the game, "Hell of a birthday, wasn't it?"

"He's amazing," Webb added. "He was my favorite player when I was in college, but man, he's amazing. How you gonna get two interceptions ... and he's about 41 years old! He turned 40 today and had two picks. One for every 20 years.

"But he's great man. Every time I walk around the locker room, I see him with (an iPad) in his hand, looking at film. He's always looking at film. I see hard work pays off and I'm still learning from him."
