Panthers 28, Chiefs 16
— Panthers: A.J. Klein recorded three tackles (two solo) and an interception. Klein had a lot of reps with the first team and all of his production came early in the game. He recorded two in the first half and his third one came in the sixth play of the Chiefs’ first drive in the 3rd quarter.
The interception came in the third drive of the game, which ended up being costly. On the third play, Klein intercepted the ball at the KC 37 yard line and ran it up all the way inside the opponent’s 10-yard line. Five plays later, former Texas running back Fozzy Whittaker put it in the touchdown that led to the final score of the game.
