Mahomes and Hill hooked up 11 times for 197 yards on Sunday, including on a clutch 75-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. The long-distance score cut the Chiefs’ deficit to 29-27; Kansas City would go on to beat the Cleveland Browns 33-29.
On the play, Mahomes rolled right and threw off one foot downfield to Hill. It was a play that seemed impossible, but Mahomes and Hill made it look routine.

After the game, Mahomes joked that he didn’t even see Hill on the play, but only saw his “little hand sticking up.”
