Like fans watching at home, Budda Baker couldn’t believe it.
The Cardinals safety appeared in the clear to score a touchdown after intercepting Russell Wilson near the goal line in the second quarter of Sunday’s game between Arizona and the Seattle Seahawks. But, after running 90-plus yards, Baker was tackled by an absurdly fast DK Metcalf just shy of the end zone. It was ridiculous.
The Cardinals on Monday shared a mic’d-up video of Baker’s reaction to the incredible play:
The answer is easy, Budda: D.K. Metcalf is faster than you. And there’s no shame in that, as the Seahawks wideout is faster than post players in the NFL.
