This is the second interception for Hutchinson this season. He becomes the first rookie this season to account for multiple sacks and interceptions.
There's only one rookie with multiple sacks and interceptions this season.

Going into Week 11, Hutchinson has accounted for 28 total tackles, 19 solo tackles, 5.5 sacks, 4 tackles for loss, 10 quarterback hits, and an interception. His first interception came in the second drive of the 15-9 home win in Week 10 over the Green Bay Packers.
Hutchinson is a serious candidate to win the 2022 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year as Jacksonville linebacker Devin Llyod, New York Jets cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, former Purdue Boilermaker and Kansas City defensive end George Karlaftis, and Jacksonville linebacker Travon Walker all join Hutchinson as serious candidates.
Detroit currently leads 17-6 over the Giants at halftime.
