Kansas City Chiefs inside linebacker Ben Niemann recorded a pick-six on Friday night to seal the team’s 28-14 preseason win against the Atlanta Falcons.

Niemann took the overthrow from Falcons quarterback Kurt Benkert 26 yards for the score. He totaled four tackles (one solo) and a pass defensed in addition to the interception.
The Chiefs coaching staff has been high on Niemann this preseason. Niemann was also one of two players our own Matt Lane highlighted in preseason game one as standing out on the tape.
He is a player to watch to make the Chiefs’ 53-man roster.
