It is never fun to make a mistake during a football game.
Even if you are one of the best in the league at your position.
But that is exactly when disaster struck for Kansas City.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, running a quick RPO design, pulled the football from his running back and looked to tight end Travis Kelce in the flat. The throw was on the money, but Kelce could not quite pull the football into his hands securely.
Instead, the pass went through the tight end, and into the waiting arms of Titans’ rookie cornerback Roger McCreary, for perhaps the easiest interception of his life:
McCreary returned the interception four yards, down to the Kansas City 34-yard line, giving fellow rookie Malik Willis and the Titans’ offense incredible field position.
That is when Kelce decided that he had had enough of his helmet, and it needed to go for a ride. Channeling his inner Pete Weber, the tight end tossed it towards the sideline like he was trying to pick up a 7-10 split:
The Titans would go on to convert a field goal on their ensuing possession, extending their lead to 17-9.
Former Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes might have won the night, however, with this quick edit:
It was a tough play from Kelce, but it made for great content.
