Arrowhead Guys scours the tape to find you the biggest plays on offense and defense every week!
When your team wins a record breaking playoff game there are bound to be plenty of big plays. The Chiefs are the only team in NFL history to win a playoff game by 20 points after being down 20 points. These are the two plays that were the most critical to the Chiefs turning around a game that was out of hand by many accounts in the first quarter.
With the score at 24-21 in the Texans favor, Chiefs fans were beginning to back off the ledge they found themselves on when they went down by three touchdowns in the first quarter. With 2:47 remaining in the first half, the Chiefs drove 90 yards down the field and secured their first lead of the day, one they would not relinquish, one a 5 yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce. But the beauty of this play is in the details, as Patrick Mahomes had the awareness to drag his toe as he passed to keep part of his body behind the line of scrimmage, avoiding an illegal forward pass penalty.

What?!?!? A Special Teams play for Defensive Play of the Game? That’s right. You’d be hard pressed to find any one play that had a bigger impact on the Chiefs historic comeback victory than Daniel Sorenson’s stuff on a fake punt attempt by the Texans from their own 31 yard line with the score 24-7. Three plays later the Chiefs are in the end zone with the score a seemingly much more manageable 24-14. From this point on, the Chiefs controlled nearly every aspect of the game.
