What to look for: Week 10 - Ed Reed

REED AND REACT:  Baltimore Ravens safety ED REED averages 26.9 yards per return on his 49 career interceptions (1,319 yards).  With an interception against Atlanta on Thursday night, Reed would become the fourth player in NFL history with 50 INTs to average at least 20.0 yards per interception return.
 
Reed, who has three interceptions in his past two games, would join Pro Football Hall of Famer ROD WOODSON (20.9) DEION SANDERS (25.1) and DARREN SHARPER (22.4) as the only players to accomplish the feat.
 
The players with 50+ career interceptions and a 20.0+ return average in NFL history:
 
PLAYER / INTs / YARDS / AVG.
Deion Sanders / 53 / 1,331 / 25.1
Darren Sharper* / 63 / 1,412 / 22.4
Rod Woodson / 71 / 1,483 / 20.9
Ed Reed* / 49 / 1,319 / 26.9
* Active  

Reed also needs 13 interception-return yards to surpass Sanders for the third-most in NFL annals:
 
PLAYER / INT RETURN YARDS
Rod Woodson / 1,483
Darren Sharper* / 1,412
Deion Sanders / 1,331
Ed Reed* / 1,319
Emlen Tunnell / 1,282
* Active
