Alex Smith isn’t the type to throw deep bombs, even in Hail Mary situations, but at the end of the first half today against the Cowboys, the Chiefs QB found a way around that limitation. On the final play before the clock hit zero, Smith was in his own territory and threw a relatively short pass across the middle to an uncovered Tyreek Hill, over 40 yards away from a touchdown. But thanks to some horrendous prevent defense from Dallas, Hill danced his way into the end zone for a very strange, unexpected score.
“I’ve never seen that in my entire time in football!” exclaimed Tony Romo after the score. And if Romo didn’t see it coming, you know that play came out of nowhere.
