The Kansas City Chiefs defense came up big in the second quarter of the team’s Week 11 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles when defensive back L’Jarius Sneed intercepted Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts.
The play came as the Eagles were driving downfield when Hurts seemed to have a lapse of judgment when targeting star receiver A.J. Brown downfield. Sneed jumped Brown’s route to get in a position to make a play on the ball and managed to make a clean catch to give Kansas City the ball with a chance to take the lead.
Take a look at Sneed’s outstanding snag:

This interception gave the Chiefs the upper hand in the Super Bowl LVII rematch on Monday Night Football and may prove to be consequential as the game wears on.
Expect Sneed to continue making his presence felt against the Eagles’ high-octane offense as Kansas City looks to earn its eighth win of the 2023 season in primetime.
