When AJ Klein talks about football, he sounds more like a coach than a player. Klein is known as one of the brightest young players on the team.
I asked him about his interception against the Chiefs on Sunday night.
"I was just matching the coverage. My number three, which is my coverage match, was coming up the field. I tried to push him over the top, and he tried to cross my face. So I let him cross my face, I ended up under cutting it. The quarterback didn't see me."
Klein then grabbed the ball out of the air and ran.
It is that precise moment when a defensive player grabs an interception and realizes that suddenly... he is on offense.
"It happens so fast, and when you have that ball you're like holy crap, I got the ball" Klein told me as his eyes lit up with excitement. "For me, what I was thinking was I see the end zone. Get up the field and towards the sideline. If I was five yards closer I would have dove for it."
"Right place at the right time." he Humbly added.
Klein may need to work on his ball running skills if he expects to impress his offensive teammates, however. Klein was chased down by the Chiefs running back.
"People were saying I look slow" he said as he laughed. "We'll see on film."
