Just before his first halftime break as an NFL player, Ward got his second pick of the night, intercepting the tipped pass from Ben Roethlisberger that was intended for tight end Jesse James. This time, Ward returned it 17 yards to the Pittsburgh 45-yard line.

After just one half of football, the fourth overall pick now has equaled the amount of interceptions he had in his entire Ohio State career.
