Williams made many QBs miserable

Class of 2014 enshrinee Aeneas Williams recorded 61 career interceptions including the playoffs during his 14-year NFL career. The total came via passes thrown by 41 different passers including three members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Williams’s biggest victim was Hall of Famer Troy Aikman. He robbed the Dallas Cowboys great six times, one of which he returned for a TD. Two of those interceptions occurred in the 1998 NFC Wild Card Game, Williams’ first career postseason appearance. Against the heavily favored Cowboys, the cornerback held Hall of Famer Michael Irvin to four receptions for 32 yards, intercepted two balls thrown towards Irvin, had two passes defensed and two tackles. The strong effort helped the Arizona Cardinals dismantle the Cowboys 20-7.

Coming in second place were four quarterbacks whose football lives were made miserable by Williams. Randall Cunningham, Brad Johnson, Heath Shuler, and Vinny Testaverde each had three passes stolen by the Southern University product.

Here is a complete list of quarterbacks intercepted by Williams.
