VIDEO: Brandon Flowers Picks Off Carson Palmer, Takes It To The House

New, comments


What a day for the Kansas City Chiefs secondary. Let's run down all the ways they're awesome, shall we?

First, it was a Kendrick Lewis interception against the Oakland Raiders first quarterback of the day, Kyle Boller. He took that one back 59 yards for a touchdown and it was Boller's first pass attempt of the day.

Second, Brandon Flowers' had a touch interception of Boller in the first quarter that preceded a Chiefs touchdown drive. That was two first quarter turnovers and 14 points off them.

Third, it was Brandon Carr stepping in and picking off a Boller pass.

Fourth, it was Javier Arenas, a cornerback, lining up in the wildcat and scoring a touchdown.

Lastly, as you can see in the video above, it was Flowers jumping a Palmer pass and taking it back to the house for six points. Flowers actually got a penalty on that play for using the ball as a prop in his touchdown celebration.

(And before I even finished writing this post, the Chiefs had another interception, this time by Jon McGraw)

That's four interceptions and three touchdowns for the Chiefs secondary. Awesome, just awesome.
