How about a little defense?
Who had 14 interceptions, averaged 21.3 yards an interception, had two defensive touchdowns, and a safety, all as a rookie in 12 games! (and probably 80 decapitating tackles to boot)
I know who but do not know his name But i think its night line train(I know that is how his nickname somewhat goes). I think that is an INT record also if im not mistaken.
Correct. Or close enough. Dick "Night Train" Lane. I thought the decapitating/estimated tackle count might help, as he was a primary reason why clothesline tackles were banned and they didn't record tackles as a stat back then. Two years later he had 10 ints, I think.
