Chiefs' Tyvon Branch sneakily picks up fumble and returns it 73 yards for a touchdown

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs defense just keeps on doing it. Tyvon Branch got his second touchdown in the past three weeks when he picked up a fumble against the Ravens and returned it a whopping 73 yards for the touchdown.

Ravens RB Buck Allen was running the ball and when he hit the pile he fumbled the ball. Derrick Johnson is getting credit for the forced fumble. It seems that no one really noticed at first that he fumbled the ball and so Tyvon Branch picked it up and started running back for the score. 73 yards later and the Chiefs had the lead back.

Watch the replay where it's not quite obvious that the ball is loose:

This was the second touchdown that Branch has scored in the past three weeks. In Week 13 he was named the AFC defensive player of the week after icing the game with an interception return against the Raiders.
