Chiefs' Josh Mauga rumbles down the field after intercepting Derek Carr

What did I just see?

The Kansas City Chiefs were down 20-14 and the Oakland Raiders were driving down the field into Chiefs territory. The momentum was on Oakland's side.

And then this happened...

That's Dee Ford, starting in place of Justin Houston, staying relentless on the pass rush and hitting Derek Carr high while Chiefs DT Jaye Howard hits him low. The ball pops out and it's CAUGHT BY JOSH MAUGA!!!!

Mauga looked so, so slow (but not in a mean way!). I mean, he got to the 1-yard line and the Chiefs scored so that's OK. What a play by Mauga and the Chiefs defense. It's up there with Sean Smith's 100-yard interception return in Buffalo a couple years ago as the most unlikely plays I remember.

Speaking of unlikely, Cairo Santos MISSED the extra point after that. This comes after the Chiefs were trying to take the lead by one because Sebastian Janikowski missed the extra point earlier.
