We’ll be talking about Derrick Johnson’s hit for a while. The Kansas City Chiefs LB rocked Titans QB Marcus Mariota. I don’t know if Titans RB Derrick Henry was supposed to pick DJ up on the blitz or what but he came in untouched and destroyed Mariota.
The ball popped out but was inexplicably not called a fumble (still not sure on that one).
Here are some of the best reactions to the big hit.
Remember that scene in Jurassic Park when that hunter was watching one velociraptor and another velociraptor popped out of nowhere and then ate his face? That's what DJ just did to Mariota.— Seth Keysor (@RealMNchiefsfan) January 6, 2018
