He’s been on Buffalo’s roster for the better part of the last five seasons, but it’s taken this his fifth season to get a couple of major firsts in his career. In Week 7 he posted his first career touchdown reception on a 58-yard catch and run. In Week 13 against the Texans he had another first.
Easley recorded his first career interception on the last play of the game. Buffalo was up nine so it was a two-score game, but in seeing how the Detroit Lions lost on a Hail Mary pass Thursday night, the Bills were practicing it as part of their weekly situational football.
With Easley a long and tall 6-3 and 225 pounds he was stationed back in the end zone along with a couple of other defenders to protect the scoring territory. Brian Hoyer heaved a pass to the end zone, but Easley went up and intercepted it.
“We went over it Friday and Saturday’s walk through,” said Easley. “After the way Detroit lost, it was something Rex felt we had to implement to prevent something like that from happening.”
For Easley it was the first interception of his career.
