Interceptions

An interception is a change of posession play that occurs during a pass when a defender catches a ball that was thrown to an offensive target.

The main skills that influence whether or not an Interception takes place are as follows:

QB: VIS, PAS, INT
DEF: VIS, POS, INT
WR: VIS, POS, INT


Other skills such as catching for the defender will also (to a lesser degree) influence whether the Interception occurs.

If the interception check comes up positive for the defense, there is a tackle chance for the offensive players, for each of the guys on field that are fast enough (SPE) to catch the defender before he enters the end zone. If the tackle is missed (TAC and STR mainly) by all of the offensive guys the defender scores. Fans rejoice or boo accordingly and a Kickoff gives the ball back to the team who just turned it over. If the defender is tackled before scoring it is a simple change of possession with the defending team's offense taking the field and progressing from there.
