The Kansas City Chiefs play the Houston Texans in the season opener this weekend and Chiefs fans can only hope to see some of this -- Alex Smith with a big run, dodging the big hit and then getting in the face of the defender. This video comes via r/KansasCityChiefs:
If you watch the play closely you'll see that Alex does avoid the big hit from former Texans safety DJ Swearinger. Alex finished this game with six rushes for 28 yards but 23 of them came on this play.
Alex's athleticism and running ability aren't shown every single game so sometimes you'll forget he's capable of that. But when he does flash that, it can be a major boost for the Chiefs.
