Bills rookie FS Jairus Byrd matched a Bills Wall of Famer and 50th All-Time Team member of the same last name with an interception feat thanks to his two picks Sunday.

Byrd is the third Bills rookie to post an interception in three consecutive games.  He’s the first to achieve the feat since Butch Byrd in 1964 (games 9-12).

Byrd also posted his fourth and fifth interceptions of the season.  He’s the first Bills rookie to post five interceptions in a season since Jeff Nixon (6) in 1979.
