Mile High Magic indeed.
The Kansas City Chiefs incredible and improbable victory came on a play you probably haven’t seen before. The Chiefs were lining up for the game winning field - that they were even in position to win is insane - from about 34 yards out.
Cairo Santos’s kick went up and ... and ... no good ... wait ... it’s good!

The ball hit off the upright, which made my heart sank. The Chiefs drove all the way down there and they were gonna lose like this? A tie? Then the refs signaled good and I realized what had happened. The ball ricocheted off of one of the uprights but still went through the other one. It’s good.
This picture though, this is everything. Colquitt thought it was no good, Santos saw it was good.
