VIDEO: Tarell Brown Makes Stunning Interception On Drew Brees

After a shaky first quarter, Drew Brees finally started to heat up and play nearly perfect football throughout the second quarter. That is, until the first play after the two-minute warning. The San Fransisco 49ers appear to be preserving their lead going into halftime, thanks to an absolutely unbelievable interception by Tarrell Brown.

To be fair to Brees, this one isn't really his fault. He saw one-on-one coverage on Devery Henderson and he made a decent throw that gave Henderson a chance to make a play. Throws like this usually result in a catch or an incomplete pass, but Brown did a spectacular job of locating the ball and extending to make the catch.

Also, on the return, Henderson got blown up. Hopefully he's fine, but there's no word on that yet. The 49ers lead the New Orleans Saints 17-14 and will be looking to extend that lead just before halftime.
