Matthew Stafford Tries to Save Face After Interception, Fails Making Haphazard Tackle Attempt (GIF)

Matthew Stafford pulled off a rare feat on Sunday afternoon, getting embarrassed twice on the same play.

The Lions quarterback attempted to hit Jeremy Ross as the first half was winding down, but his pass was picked off by the Cowboys’ Shaun Lee who returned it 59 yards for the touchdown.

Stafford tried to derail Lee’s return around the Lions’ 30-yard line, but his effort failed pretty miserably. The quarterback slipped before even reaching the linebacker, leaving Stafford to blindly grasp for Lee, who was still on his feet and avoiding the haphazard tackle.

Check out the tackling fail below, with a fist bump to SportsGrid.
