Here’s a safe guess: Ricardo Allen won’t soon forget his first NFL interception.
The former Purdue cornerback notched the game-sealing interception to send the Atlanta Falcons past the Philadelphia Eagles, 26-24, in the teams’ season opener Monday night.

A fifth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Allen recorded 13 interceptions at Purdue, second only to Stuart Schweigert in program history.
Allen was excited:
