I can’t stop watching Chris Conley’s catch on 3rd and 17

New, comments

The play of the game for the Kansas City Chiefs in their win over the New Orleans Saints was either Tyreek Hill’s 38-yard touchdown catch or Daniel Sorensen’s 48-yard interception return for a touchdown. Another play we need to recognize is Chris Conley’s 18-yard catch on third and 17 in the fourth quarter. This kept the Chiefs drive alive with a little less than seven minutes left on the clock and it allowed the Chiefs to drive more time off the clock.

The play is a thing is of beauty. If you’ve been watching the Chiefs for a while you know this is not something they regularly do.

First, from Alex’s point of view. When he sits in the pocket this long I usually expect some happy feet or a busted play. Instead he fires one off as he’s getting hit.

Second, Conley was covered. Alex doesn’t make throws like this a whole lot. Why is that? Because those throws and these catches are really hard.

Please, just loop this catch a few times and appreciate this catch by Conley, who is making the grab AND keeping his feet in bounds.

My goodness that was a good play.
