A memorable last birthday as a Bull
D'Juan Brown's third-quarter interception return is revenge vs. the team that ended his 2004 season.

TAMPA - If payback can be wrapped as a present, that's what Cincinnati gave defensive back D'Juan Brown for his 23rd birthday Saturday.
He received the gift in the third quarter, making the game-changing play against a team he has had on his mind since Nov. 20, 2004.
In last season's 45-23 loss to Cincinnati, Brown broke his arm in the second quarter, sidelining him for the last two games. Saturday, with eight minutes left in the third quarter, Dustin Grutza underthrew two receivers to allow Brown his "easy pick, that came right to me."
The 26-yard return put the Bulls up 17-7, a play Brown called "a little payback."
"It's really something that just happened," said Brown after his second interception, tied for the lead team with four others. "I was waiting on it, waiting on it and whoop, there it is.
"This was a payback. I was watching film all week, trying to figure out how to get one against them, and it paid off today."
Cincinnati coach Mark Dantonio said the play was poorly run from the snap.
"I didn't know what was happening because we were screaming for a hold," Dantonio said. "The (receivers) were both bunched up, the defenders were all bunched up; the one guy was supposed to run an out cut, and then the throw was poor."
Co-defensive coordinator Rick Kravitz knew the takeaway was special for Brown.
"That play was huge," said Kravitz, whose defense has 11 takeaways in the past three games. "We were upset we gave up the score before halftime, and when D'Juan made that play it kind of picked up the whole team.
"I think it was real special to him because all week, all season he's had this game circled on his calendar. It was a team he wanted to play against because of his injury, and when he got a chance to do this, I knew it lit him up."
Safety Johnnie Jones said he was glad to see his fellow senior celebrate his birthday with a pick.
"We know we've got to score on defense; we say it on the sideline," said Jones, who had six tackles. "That interception was huge for him. It was his birthday and he was like a little kid opening a present.
"He said, "It was bad for me for last year against this team. I got to set a tone.' I told him, "Man, just play your game. It'll happen.' And it did. I'm so happy for him, too."
