Even though it didn't stand, David actually picked off a pass in the third quarter that deflected off the hands of 49ers tight end Vernon Davis and returned it for a 69-yard touchdown. However, it was nullified because Gerald McCoy was ruled offside. David was shaken up on the play, but he would return to the game.
