With the Lions holding a 10-7 lead and under three minutes remaining, Nick Mullens tried to take a deep shot to Jordan Addison. However, Joseph stepped right in front of the pass for an impressive interception—his third of the year.
Joseph, known for his flash and flare, took the opportunity—while still returning the ball upfield—to turn to the Vikings sideline and gesture. It’s not entirely clear what he was doing. Was he taunting the Vikings sideline? Motioning at the sideline official for a call? Either way, even if it was slightly irresponsible, it was hilarious and awesome. Take a look:
Joseph would return the ball all the way to the Vikings’ 33-yard line, and Detroit found the end zone just three plays later for a 17-7 lead. Unfortunately for the Lions, Minnesota was able to quickly drive back for a 17-14 game at halftime.
