Patriots vs. Bengals Bold Prediction: Pick-six for Malcolm Butler
We’ve seen Butler intercept three passes in his NFL career. The first was the famous Super Bowl XLIX heroism, the second came off a tipped ball in Week 2 last season, and the third was a garbage-time pick against the Titans in his own end zone.
Butler is about due for his third regular season and fourth overall interception as a pro, and it will happen in Week 6.
Moreover, Butler will return the interception for a touchdown; the Patriots defense as a whole is about due for a juicy play like a pick-six, and this writer senses it coming against the Bengals.
For those of you not completely sold on Butler after a bit of a premature Pro Bowl casting last season, you will get fully on board with No. 21 after he makes this outstanding, game-changing play.
However, Butler won’t have the only pick-six of the day…
