For Pete's Sake

Chiefs’ special teams botched a golden chance to down ball at the 1-yard line

Well, that didn’t go as planned.

In the second quarter of their game Sunday in Dallas, the Chiefs had a chance to down a punt at the Cowboys’ 1-yard line. One problem: there were too many Chiefs on the scene.

Jehu Chesson was ready to catch the ball by the goal line when teammate Steve Terrell got a hand on the ball and it dropped into the end zone for at touchback:

The good news is the Chiefs’ defense forced a three-and-out, and the offense got a field goal on the next possession.

Still, fans of other teams got a good laugh about the play.
