As the Kansas City Chiefs prepare for the postseason, they want to establish the big play with wide receiver Tyreek Hill before the regular season ends. They got right to work on that against the Oakland Raiders with a 67-yard touchdown.
On just the sixth play of Kansas City’s opening drive, Hill turned Raiders cornerback Nick Nelson into dust as he sprinted past him with ease to get open deep down the field. Patrick Mahomes saw it and dropped it right into Hill’s hands in stride for the 49th passing touchdown this season.

Hill came into Sunday’s game on a quiet note with two consecutive games under 75 receiving yards and no touchdowns.
A win would clinch a first-round bye for the Chiefs and establishing the deep shots with Hill would give this offense even more momentum and rhythm heading into the playoffs.
