Ex-Northwestern DL Dean Lowry records clutch interception
Dean Lowry came up with a clutch interception during Sunday’s action with the Green Bay Packers.
The former Northwestern standout was a fourth-round selection by the Packers in 2016. Since then, Lowry has developed into a consistent contributor for Green Bay’s defensive front.
While clinging to a lead late in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, Lowry pulled off an improbable move. Chicago’s Mitch Trubisky tried to fit a throw past the defensive lineman, but Lowry leaped into the passing lane. He batted the ball down and nearly lost it before securing the turnover on his way to the ground.
Though Green Bay didn’t score off the turnover, it halted one Chicago drive and helped the Packers hold on to the win. Check it out:

Lowry played for Northwestern from 2012-15. He finished his Wildcats career with 31 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks, along with three interceptions and 17 passes defended. As it turns out, Lowry is no stranger to being a disruptive force in the passing game.
