LAS VEGAS — Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard got the Pro Bowl going quickly on Sunday with a 45-yard zigzag six pick from Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray.

Leonard intervened in front of a pass intended for Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts near the left sideline. He then ran into midfield and down the right sideline before blasting past Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard Ali Marpet. He then juked Buccaneers center Ryan Jensen before returning to midfield and outrunning Minnesota Vikings tackle Brian O’Neill in the end zone.

Granted, in a real game, Leonard would have been tackled – hard – immediately after the interception. But it’s exposition, and fans enjoyed the display of Leonard, who has a career defensive rating: a pick six in 2019.

Although the defenses didn’t tackle much, they did have an impact as Antoine Winfield Jr. and Myles Garrett also scored after interceptions.
