Aaron Murray’s pass intended for Da’Ron Brown fell incomplete, leaving the Chiefs with a fourth-and-12 at the Seahawks 40. Surely an occasion for a field position punt, right?
Nope. Andy Reid signaled in the place-kicking unit and Cairo Santos trotted on the field to attempt the 58-yarder
Boom! The ball sailed through with room to spare to give the Chiefs a 16-6t lead in the third quarter. Had this been a regular-season game, Santos would have tied the club record for distance. Nick Lowery booted 58-yarders in 1983 and 1985. He also kicked a 57-yarder giving him the three longest field goals in club history.
Santos’ career long in a regular season game is 53.
