It wouldn’t be a Kansas City Chiefs game if quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn’t score an insane touchdown. No. 15 capitalized on an interception by rookie CB L’Jarius Sneed for a monster 54-yard touchdown in the middle of the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Chargers.
It was a classic Chiefs play, reminding everyone in the league why they’re the reigning world champions.
The game was less than enjoyable for Chiefs Kingdom up until that moment. Several injuries contributed to a depleted side and it looked like rookie QB Justin Herbert could lead the hosts to a victory against their AFC West rivals and his first NFL win.
Like clockwork, Twitter went to work to shout the dynamic duo’s praises.
The Kansas City Chiefs are 27-3 against AFC West rivals since 2015. Following Sunday’s win, it brings them to 28-3.
Kelce To Chargers Defender: ‘Get off Me’
Since most games are being played without fans, you can really hear just about everything said by players on the field. Such was the case Sunday, when wide receiver Travis Kelce uttered “Get off me” to a Chargers defender as he broke tackle.
It was kind of a fun moment to watch play out. However, you can also sense the 30-year-old was feeling rather aggravated at this point. The Chiefs still weren’t out of the clear when it came to their performance. By the sound of his voice, it was a bit of frustration coupled with satisfaction. After all, the Los Angeles player followed through with Kelce’s order.
