Jefferson picked off quarterback Joe Flacco in the back of the end zone with six seconds left in the game to stave off a furious comeback and seal the Arizona Cardinals’ 26-18 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
As noted by Darren Urban, a writer for the Cardinals’ official team website, one of the first things Jefferson did upon returning to the locker room was check out his Twitter account.
