The San Diego Chargers are the latest in a long line of Kansas City Chiefs opponents to learn a valuable lesson. Keep the ball away from Tyreek Hill.

Generally speaking, fielding a punt on the five-yard line is ill advised. The logical play is to stand between the eight- and 10-yard line and let any ball over your head go.
But Hill is such a dangerous playmaker that conventional logic doesn’t apply. When he gets the ball in his hands with any room to run, he’s a threat to score.
The touchdown gave Kansas City a comfortable 34-17 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
