Cornerbacks, safeties, and linebackers generally get the most interceptions because it is their job to cover opposing receivers in the passing game. Creating turnovers is a point of emphasis for all successful defenses.
Also known as a "INT", "pick" or "pick off".
More about Team Interceptions
Only forward passes are recorded as an interception if the defense gains possession of the ball. Intercepting a lateral or backwards pass is recorded as a fumble recovery instead of an interception.
