Chiefs fans chanted for Dontari Poe before he threw a TD pass

“Dontari Poe threw a touchdown pass” is a real sentence I am writing because it is true. Poe took a direct snap as the quarterback on the goal line and faked like he was going to run it in. He stopped short and then jumped up and threw a jump pass to Demetrius Harris for the touchdown.

Even better? Chiefs fans were chanting for Poe. THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVER.

I can’t believe what I just wrote is true. ESPN reported it was the first defense-first player to throw a TD since 1981.

The context here: this is the death of the 2016 Broncos. The Chiefs are having their dang 350-pound nose tackle throw touchdown passes while they’re dancing on the grave of the defending champs.

What a world.
