Saturday will mark two years since the last time Brandon Carr intercepted a pass, against the Oakland Raiders to seal a win on Thanksgiving Day 2013.
Carr acknowledged this week that the long drought has been on his mind.
"Thinking about it all the time," Carr said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I want to get the ball in my hands more. That would be icing on the cake. I'm hard on myself with interceptions. So that's where I kind of base my season, my progress each year. We're still working on it. We've still got some more games to go and get the ball."
Carr has 14 career interceptions, but that last one came when his son, Austin, was just three months old. Now, in addition to his own desire to get his hands on the ball, he wants to show his boy what he can do now that he’s old enough to grasp what’s going on to some degree.
“I'm just trying to get one for my little man right now, so he can see dad get an interception finally, now that he understands what's going on out there,” Carr said. "Give him something to get excited about.”
