NEW ORLEANS — Add another unforgettable moment to the New Orleans Saints-Atlanta Falcons rivalry: the “butt pick.”

Saints rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore intercepted a pass late in the second quarter that actually came to rest on his butt as he lay face down — before he secured it against his backside with help from teammates Marcus Williams and Craig Robertson.

“Everybody else was trying to grab it. So I just had to keep it in my possession,” said Lattimore, who said he has made some athletic plays before, “but nothing like that.”

Social media immediately erupted with references to the #buttpick and #buttinterception, as well as comparisons to the New York Jets’ infamous “butt fumble” from five years ago.

“I must be living right, I don’t know,” said Lattimore. “Who doesn’t love the term ‘butt pick’ but saw that social media was already rolling with it.”

“I don’t know. They’re gonna have to call it what they want. Hopefully it’s No. 1 on the top-10 SportsCenter,” Lattimore said. “But it was a great play and we won, so that’s all I can think about.”

Saints RB Mark Ingram said it’s “gotta be an ESPY” and suggested hamstring curl.

Meanwhile, the Saints made it count by turning the momentum into a quick 54-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees to Ted Ginn Jr. three plays later for a 13-0 halftime lead en route to a 23-13 win.

This one might not wind up being immortalized with a statue outside the Superdome like Steve Gleason’s blocked punt against the Falcons when the Saints reopened the building after Hurricane Katrina in 2006, but it did have big playoff implications. The Saints (11-4) clinched a playoff spot with the win and would claim the NFC South with a victory next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The interception was Lattimore’s fifth of the season and second in three weeks against Atlanta as he looks to cement his place as the front-runner for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

“I haven’t seen anything like that before,” Lattimore said. “But it helped us win, so that’s the biggest thing.”

The 11th overall draft pick from Ohio State made the Pro Bowl earlier in the week at the age of 21. He tied Sammy Knight’s franchise record from 1997 with five interceptions as a rookie.

METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints’ resurgent defense will be put to the test Sunday in Los Angeles without both of their starting cornerbacks against the Los Angeles Rams’ resurgent offense.

Breakout rookie Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and second-year pro Ken Crawley (abdomen) have both been ruled out after not practicing all week. The Saints (8-2) also must make do without starting defensive end Alex Okafor, who was placed on injured reserve this week with a torn Achilles.

The good news is that New Orleans will get two starters back from injuries: safety Kenny Vaccaro and linebacker A.J. Klein, both of whom practiced on a limited basis all week.

“We’ll have contingency plans for whoever we have available to us. And we’ll have a good plan to go out and execute against the Rams,” Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen said. “I think one of the good things is we’ve developed some depth here, hopefully so that we can withstand some of the injury concerns.

“You never know when you’re gonna be called on. That’s part of that, as everybody says, that ‘next man up’ philosophy. And that’s really the way that this league is.”

The Saints have survived injuries the past two months. The cornerback position is thinner than most after they also lost former starter Delvin Breaux to injured reserve with a broken fibula during the preseason.

Young backups P.J. Williams and De’Vante Harris will likely start on Sunday, with veteran Sterling Moore also in the mix after re-signing with New Orleans on Monday. Vaccaro will likely serve as the nickel cornerback, as he has done for most of the year when healthy.

Last week, after Lattimore was injured in the first quarter (while breaking up a pass in the end zone, no less) the Saints went on to give up more than 300 yards and three touchdown passes to the Washington Redskins’ Kirk Cousins in a dramatic 34-31 overtime victory.

Lattimore, just 21 years old, has been one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL this season — and one of the main reasons why New Orleans has the second-best pass defense in the league since Week 3 (167 passing yards allowed per game in that span).

Lattimore, who was drafted with the 11th overall pick, is a front-runner for the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year award, with two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), nine pass defenses and a forced fumble.

The Rams offense, meanwhile, has been just as surprising as the New Orleans defense, ranking fifth in the NFL this season with 375.4 yards per game and second in the league with 30.3 points per game.

Los Angles, however, will also be missing top receiver Robert Woods this week after he was ruled out with a shoulder injury.
