Despite being drafted by and making a name for himself with the division rival Cleveland Browns, cornerback Joe Haden has become pretty popular with the Pittsburgh Steelers organization in a much shorter time period.

In a recent interview with NFL Network, Haden was asked about his favorite memory as a Steeler, and he gave a pretty specific and distinct answer, albeit one you might expect if you've followed his time in Pittsburgh.

Hayden replied, “My favorite play since I’ve been a Steeler was my interception in 2018 vs Tom Brady. Fourth quarter, seven minutes left, they were at the 20-yard line. We were in zone coverage. I was in Cover 2 sinking, no one was over my way so I was just looking back at the quarterback. Then I just saw [Brady] for some reason throw the ball my way.”

The pick helped ensure a win for the Steelers, 17-10, in that meaningful game. It was an uncharacteristically poor decision and throw from Tom Brady.

But when you're going up against one of the best quarterbacks of all time, you'll take a game-deciding interception any way you can get it.
