Chiefs’ Mecole Hardman torches Ravens on 83-yard touchdown reception

Let the record show that this Chiefs drive covered 96 yards in three plays.

Yep, the Chiefs’ lightning-strike offense was on display during Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens at Arrowhead Stadium.

After the Chiefs’ defense forced the Ravens to punt, Baltimore was happy to have pinned Kansas City at its 4-yard line.

That didn’t deter the Chiefs, who ran the ball twice and capped the quick drive with an 83-yard touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes to rookie receiver Mecole Hardman.

Hardman caught the ball at the 50-yard line and left a pair of Ravens players in his dust.

This is the play, which the NFL shared on Twitter:

The Legion of Zoom lived up to its name on that play.

According to Next Gen stats, Hardman reached 21.74 mph on the touchdown, the fastest speed reached by a ball carrier on a scoring play this season.
