Chiefs’ Dontari Poe Becomes The Heaviest Player To Throw A Touchdown And Win Over Broncos

Kansas City Chiefs were happy to give a gift to all of its fans by having Dontari Poe, Chiefs’ defensive lineman, throw a touchdown pass. He was listed at 346 lbs, lined up in backfield and got a handoff in the game’s final moments as the Kansas City Chiefs were just 2 yards from the Broncos end zone in Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium.

However, instead of powering the ball up the middle with an attempt of driving his way in for the score, Poe leaped off his feet gracefully and floated the ball over the top of defenders to Demetrius Harris. Harris caught the ball and put the Kansas City Chiefs up 33-10.

Dontari Poe, a 26-year-old lineman celebrated his unexpected score as he was mobbed by teammates. The loss knocked the reigning Super Bowl Champion Broncos out of playoff contention.

Check out the amazing play below:

In a tweet of ESPN, it was said that Poe is the first defensive player to throw a touchdown since 1981, and he’s also the heaviest to do it, beating his closest competitor by eighty one pounds.

The Chiefs dominated the Broncos, both defensively and offensively, all night long.

Maybe Andy Reid was just trying to make the point that he isn’t the conservative game caller who plans to make the same lack of aggressive plays in playoffs.

The Chiefs are currently 11-4 while the Raiders are 12-3. However, the Raiders lost Derek Carr, the team’s MVP quarterback, for the rest of the season from a broken fibula on Saturday and will go into their season finale in Denver. If the Raiders lose and Chiefs win against the Chargers in San Diego, the Kansas City Chiefs will be the division winner.
