Williams and Favre connect again in Lions' loss
MINNEAPOLIS -- Between the draft acquisition of Ndamukong Suh and the free agent signing of Kyle Vanden Bosch, the trade for defensive tackle Corey Williams is sometimes overlooked.
It shouldn’t be. He’s a huge reason why the Lions defensive line is the strength of the team.
Williams made a huge interception early in the 24-10 loss to the Vikings on Sunday. He couldn’t have been happier that it was a ball thrown by Brett Favre.
Williams and Favre have been friends since they played together at Green Bay.
They chatted on Sunday before and after the game.
After Williams intercepted that Favre pass in the first quarter, Favre had a few words for his buddy. He told him he snagged a good one and joked that he didn’t think Williams had it in him.
Williams returned the ball 27 yards, but was disappointed he didn’t score on the play. But the Lions did take advantage and scored a touchdown three plays later.
“I wish I could have gone in there, but I didn’t. (It was) a good thing the offense got the ball and they punched it in. I think the turnaround got our momentum going,’’ Williams said.
Too bad it didn’t last.
