Grand Valley State alumnus Brandon Carr made the Laker faithful proud on Sunday, as the lockdown corner nabbed his first career NFL interception against the Denver Broncos, off of Jay Cutler on a pass intended for Brandon Marshall.

Grand Valley State alumnus Brandon Carr made the Laker faithful proud on Sunday, as the lockdown corner nabbed his first career NFL interception against the Denver Broncos, off of Jay Cutler on a pass intended for Brandon Marshall.

Marshall, widely considered a top 10 wide receiver in the NFL, was covered by Brandon Carr all day while fellow rookie cornerback Brandon Flowers was in charge of Eddie Royal.

Brandon Carr had his second career fumble recovery in the first quarter after Royal coughed up the ball and Carr returned it 17 yards. His first fumble recovery was a footnote in history, when he came up with a Randy Moss fumble on the same play in which Patriots quarterback Tom Brady suffered a season-ending injury.

Carr's big moment came in the third quarter as Cutler tried to find Marshall up the right sideline on a play-action pass. The ball was mildly underthrown, and Carr turned his hips and made a leaping grab. He returned it 32 yards to the Denver 47-yard line in his first of what will hopefully be many interceptions in his professional career.

Highlights of Carr's amazing game can be seen at the Kansas City Chiefs vs Denver Broncos Game Center.

The Chiefs are back on the field next Sunday at Carolina for a noon tilt on CBS in what looks like will be another tough match-up for Carr as he will most likely be in charge of shutting down veteran receiver Muhsin Muhammad.
