[Kansas City.com] It might not exactly rival Babe Ruth pointing to the bleachers immediately before hitting a World Series home run, but Chiefs safety Greg Wesley called his shots Sunday, too.
Wesley and Tony Gonzalez were primping in front of the locker-room mirror before the Chiefs’ 26-16 win over New England. Wesley casually predicted to his teammate that he would get three interceptions.
That’s exactly what Wesley did. Playing center field like a Gold Glover, Wesley caught three of Tom Brady’s overthrows. Brady, who also threw a fourth-quarter pick to Sammy Knight, was intercepted four times for only the fourth time in his career.
“It’s big against Tom Brady,” Wesley said. “He’s a great quarterback. It feels a little more special to get it against a guy like him.”
“I know what they like to do,” Wesley said. “They like to run seam routes and inside routes. On that last one, they had run that route before and they hit it for a play, a big play. So I was kind of expecting that route. I got a pretty good jump on that ball.”
