Kansas City Chiefs' Alex Smith lost an interception thanks to NFL stat correction

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL ruled one of his interceptions was actually a fumble.

Alex Smith lost an interception. The NFL makes their stat corrections each week (as Peyton Manning and his passing yards record will soon find out) and KC Chiefs QB Alex Smith had one of his interceptions in the Colts game taken away.

It was Smith's first interception of the day in Indy. He dropped back to pass and as he threw the ball forward, Robert Mathi was pressuring him from behind.

Mathis tipped the ball before it exited Alex's hands.

The ball then landed in the hands of Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who was then drilled by linebacker Jamaal Charles.

The NFL ruled it an interception initially but it was really a fumble. So Alex Smith now has seven interceptions, not eight.
