Saints defensive back Marcus Williams made one of the worst plays in team history during Sunday’s AFC divisional playoff game, and it appears to be wearing on him.
Williams missed badly on a tackle attempt on the game’s final seconds, which allowed Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs to score a game-winning, 61-yard touchdown.
Here’s what the tackle fail looked like.
It appeared to affect Williams after the game, big-time. The rookie was seen crying in the locker room after the loss.
It’s unclear if Williams was attempting to avoid a penalty for hitting high, or for trying too hard to keep Diggs in bounds. Whatever the reason, he failed miserably, and is feeling the effects of it.
