Harrison Butker kicked a 44-yard field goal as time expired to give the Kansas City Chiefs a 26-23 win over the Minnesota Vikings at Arrowhead Stadium.
160 receiving yards and a touchdown from Tyreek Hill, as well as a 91-yard rushing score from Damien Williams, gave the Chiefs the offensive spark they needed with Patrick Mahomes still out of the lineup while recovering from a dislocated kneecap.
Damien Williams scores a 91-yard touchdown for the Chiefs
In response, the Chiefs went the length of the field in just two plays. Backed up deep, running back Damien Williams broke through the defense and raced 91 yards for a touchdown. The run was the longest in the NFL so far this season, and tied a Chiefs’ all-time record.
Butker added another kick to make in 20-16 to Kansas City, but the Vikings fought back. Early in the fourth quarter, Cousins threw his third touchdown of the game with a three-yard, third-down strike to Kyle Rudolph which put Minnesota ahead again.
As the clock wound down, the Chiefs found a way to win. On their penultimate drive of the day, Hill came down with a spectacular grab – for 41 yards – to get them into field goal position. Despite an 11-yard loss on a sack, Butker drilled a 54-yarder to tie the game.
