Luketa began the game at middle linebacker with Ellis Brooks sidelined, and he transitioned to defensive end in the second half when Brooks returned.
In the third quarter, Luketa came away with a one-handed interception, taking it 16 yards to the house for a pick-6.
One top of his interception, Luketa totaled four tackles on Saturday, half of which were solo.
