The signing of free agent defensive end Marcus Williams has sent shockwaves through the Ravens’ organization. On Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, Williams made history by becoming the first Raven to record three interceptions in the first two games of the season with two of them coming in the first half of the game. Williams actually did it in his first two games as a Raven.
That first pick Williams made on Sunday afternoon was ridiculous. Williams made a diving interception of a throw intended for Tyreek Hill. Before the ball could touch the ground, Williams reached behind him with his left hand and palmed it.
After Marlon Humphrey lost track of Jaylen Waddle deep in Tua Tagovailoa’s pass, Williams demonstrated his range by diving over the top to pick off the ball. It was first deemed that Williams was out of bounds, but review revealed that he had dragged his left toe, and the ruling was reversed.
As a member of the Ravens, Anthony Averett excelled by making three interceptions last year. With Marcus Peters back from suspension and first-round selection Kyle Hamilton on defense.

Baltimore hoped for a turnover surge in their matchup with the Dolphins thanks to their trio of new and improved defensive backs. Perhaps they were surprised by Williams’s three interceptions in his first two outings.
Prior to this season, Anthony Averett had more interceptions (3) for the Ravens than anybody else. With the additions of first-round pick Kyle Hamilton and returning starter Marcus Peters, as well as the signing of Williams, Baltimore hoped to increase its turnover ratio in its upcoming matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Williams’s three interceptions in his first two games likely exceeded expectations.
