The Chiefs had all but wrapped up their 26-10 win at Oakland on Sunday when the Raiders got the ball with less than four minutes to play.

Oakland was called for holding on its first play and had a first-and-20 play to try and kick-start the rally. So, the Raiders thought, why not try a screen pass to running back Jalen Richard?

Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson is why.

Johnson blew up the play with one of the biggest hits of the season. Here is a Vine from The Sports Daily

Richard was shaken up on the play, and honestly, I would have been bed-ridden for two weeks. But Richard took to Twitter to say he was OK.
