Malcolm Butler made a name for himself in the Super Bowl when he made the game-saving interception to seal the victory for the New England Patriots. It was his first career interception, and it couldn't have come at a better time.

On Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, Butler made his first regular season interception, and it was equally as impressive -- aside from the fact that it wasn't to win the Super Bowl. Instead, this one set up a 2-yard touchdown from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski.

It was the first of what's sure to be many for Butler in the regular season as he assumes the role of the Patriots' No. 1 cornerback.
