Atlanta Falcons rookie cornerback A.J. Terrell recorded his first career interception in impressive fashion Sunday afternoon in his Week 6 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

With less than 6 minutes left in the first half, Terrell jumped at a pass from Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins. The ball slipped through Terrell’s hands and he ended up securing the ball with his legs.

The Falcons’ first-round pick is playing in his fourth NFL game and his second game since he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list after either contracting the coronavirus or coming into contact with someone who did earlier in the season.
