After recording his first career interception and flipping into the endzone, Marco Wilson earned the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award.
Along with the 38-yard touchdown return, Wilson finished with two pass deflections and three tackles on Thursday night.
But this clip may have single-handedly won the award as people cannot stop talking about Wilson’s athleticism.

The Arizona Cardinals drafted Marco Wilson in the 4th round of the 2021 draft. HC Kliff Kingsbury has spoken highly of the 23-year-old.
At the beginning of the season, CB Antonion Hamilton won the starting position over Wilson. However, since then, Marco Wilson has played at least 75% of the defensive snaps in every week this season.
Kingsbury was extremely pleased with how Wilson handled the competition at the cornerback position.
“He [Wilson] really dialed back in… Our coaches were up front with him about what he needed to do.”
