Early in the Monday Night Football broadcast showing the highly-anticipated game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, Chiefs cornerback L'Jarius Sneed earned a quick penalty for trying to jam up a receiver off of the line of scrimmage and he was called for illegal use of hands. At the time, little was thought of the penalty because Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has been quoted as wanting Sneed to do his thing without planting worries in his head about playing safe.
Chiefs fans saw exactly why in the second quarter in Week 11.
If you want an early contender for play of the game, you might want to bookmark this highlight.
As the Eagles were driving in the second quarter hoping to go up for their first lead of the game, Hurts went back to throw under pressure and Sneed came up with a great read underneath of A.J. Brown to pick off the pass and give the ball back to the Chiefs.
Check out the highlight of the first turnover of the night below:
Eagles fans have some extra reason to be upset about this play, however, because wide receiver A.J. Brown then tried to pry away the ball when Sneed got up following the interception and managed to get the ball back with a strong effort. Suddenly there were questions about what the call would or should be.
From that point, the officials ruled that Sneed was down earlier and that K.C. would get the ball after forcing a turnover.
It will be interesting to see how this game plays out and how big of a momentum switch this will prove to be.
