The Chiefs just keep breaking big plays.
When Kareem Hunt ran for a 69-yard touchdown in the final minutes of the
Chiefs’ win over the Chargers on Sunday, it represented the ninth
consecutive game in which the Chiefs scored a touchdown of 50 yards or
longer. That’s the longest streak in NFL history.
Hunt has done it in all three games of his NFL career. In Week Two Hunt
had a 53-yard touchdown run, and in Week one Hunt had a 78-yard
touchdown reception. Tyreek Hill added a 75-yard touchdown reception in
Hill scored a 95-yard punt return touchdown in the final game of the
2016 regular season. The week before that Hill had a 70-yard touchdown
run, and Travis Kelce had an 80-yard touchdown reception. Hill had a
68-yard touchdown run the week earlier and a 78-yard punt return
touchdown a week before that. Before that Albert Wilson had a 55-yard
touchdown run. And a week before that, Hill got the streak started with
an 86-yard touchdown on a free kick after a safety.
The Chiefs may be both the NFL’s best team, and the NFL’s most fun team.
