Jacoby Ford Video: Watch Raiders Wideout Turn Another INT Into Catch

Jacoby Ford has done it again. The Oakland Raiders' wideout has turned yet another interception into a big play, this time on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. 

Early in the fourth quarter, Raider quarterback Bruce Gradkowski launched a pass in Ford's direction that appeared to be a sure interception. The ball flew into the hands of Dolphins safety Chris Clemons, who looked certain to come down with the pick. 

But Ford would not be deterred, snatching the ball from Clemons the instant he bobbled it, before landing face up on the turf to make the catch. 

Ford had himself quite the ballgame on Sunday, racking up 108 yards on four catches, and scoring a receiving touchdown—his first of the season.

He exploded onto the NFL scene in Week 9, with a 149 yard performance against Kansas City. Ford had a pair of fantastic grabs in that game, as well.

The rookie wideout from Clemson also returned a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown, becoming just the second player since the NFL-AFL merger to return a kick for a touchdown and catch a touchdown pass in the same game. 

However, Ford's heroics could not save the Raiders, who fell to the 'Fins 33-17. The Raiders were tormented by Dolphins' quarterback Chad Henne, who racked up 307 yards and two touchdowns in his first game back from injury.

Running back Darren McFadden struggled to generate any space rushing the ball, racking up just two yards on eight carries. Ford was the team's leading rusher, thanks to a 13-yard gain on a reverse. 

The loss was Oakland's second straight after a three-game winning streak saw them climb above .500.
