Quarterback Sam Bradford has had a chance to watch the film of his costly interception in the final minute of Thursday’s 16-13 loss to the Lions.
On that play, Bradford targeted wide receiver Adam Thielen, who ran an out route out of the slot. Lions cornerback Darius Slay was on the outside, lined up across from rookie Laquon Treadwell, who ran a go route. But Slay pulled off of Treadwell and was in perfect position for the pick.
Three days later, Bradford was asked if in hindsight he would do anything differently on that play, which allowed the Lions to kick the game-winner.
“It’s tough. The guy made a really good play,” the quarterback said this morning. “They trapped it. It was something we hadn’t seen, and you’d like to be able to look out there and see him. But he turned his back with our outside receiver, really sold that he was going with him. If anything, try to peek out there and see him, but it was just a tough one to see.”
Bradford admits the team is frustrated after its fifth loss in six games.
“I think anytime you go through a stretch like we’ve had, people do get frustrated and it’s tough. But, at the same time, I think we’ve realized there’s still a lot of football to be played, and you never know what can happen,” Bradford said. “All we can worry about is going out and beating Dallas this week, taking it from there, taking it one week at a time.”
