The longest run of the 2019 NFL season (so far) belongs to Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams. Williams, making quite a case for why he should be named Kansas City’s starting RB again, completely torched the Minnesota Vikings defense for an incredible 91-yard touchdown run.
Down 16-10 in their own territory, back-up quarterback Matt Moore handed the ball off to the San Diego native and he took off for the incredible run to the house. In addition to having the longest run of this season, Williams also logged the longest run in Kansas City Chiefs history.
Running alongside the 27-year-old Williams was Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who made sure to inch slightly ahead of his teammate as the two reached the end zone. According to ESPN’s Bill Barnwell, Hill reached a max speed of 22.6 miles per hour attempting to catch up to the new record holder.
That touchdown run resulted in a one point advantage to the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, thanks to a missed extra point from Vikings kicker Dan Bailey following a 16-yard pass from Kirk Cousins to Ameer Abdullah earlier in the quarter.
