De’Anthony Thomas is happily doing the dirty work for Chiefs

Tyreek Hill rocketed down the sideline in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 30-27 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday, a 23-mile-per-hour blur in white. He put distance between himself and the nearest Bronco with every step, until he finally downshifted as he approached the end zone for an 86-yard free-kick touchdown. But before he scored, Hill turned to his left, as another blur in white – a slightly smaller one – caught up to him. Hill saw his buddy, De’Anthony Thomas, and raised his left hand. The two high-fived as they sprinted in the end zone.
