Knile Davis wins an award for his TD return in Week 8.

The Kansas City Chiefs' Knile Davis has his first career player of the week award. The NFL named him the AFC special teams player of the week following his 99-yard touchdown return in the Chiefs-Rams game last weekend.

Watch the play here. This was his second career kickoff return for a touchdown.

Not only was that a great play, it came at the absolute perfect time. The Chiefs started off the game on defense so they got the ball at the start of the second half. The Chiefs' Cairo Santos kicked a field goal in the final seconds of the first half to make it 10-7 (remember, this was a close game at halftime).

Davis took the opening kickoff of the second half 99 yards to the house for the touchdown. That gave the Chiefs a 17-7 lead as they pulled away from the Rams. It was the turning point in the game.

Congrats to Knile Davis!
