New Orleans strongside linebacker A.J. Klein recorded the second interception of his six-year career Thursday night in the win over Atlanta. The pass was deflected at the line of scrimmage and promptly popped into Klein's vicinity allowing him to make an easy play on the ball. Along with the interception, Klein had a decent night with four combined tackles adding a tackle for a loss.
Klein's performance could be seen as part of another contest that the New Orleans defense shined. For any IDP owners who had him inserted into their lineups, the interception was a welcomed stat. His tackle total in this contest was relativity average at best. Going forward and with the defense hitting its stride as a whole, IDP owners may want to temper expectations with an "Any Given Sunday" mindset on his likely production. Normally it is fellow middle linebacker Demario Davis, who recorded a stat line of six combined, one tackle for a loss, one sack and a forced fumble leading the way on the IDP production among the linebacker unit. As he did in this contest looking at it in an overall picture.
