Last weekend, Kansas City Chiefs safety Justin Reid made a 65-yard field goal after practice. On Saturday, he was allowed to attempt an extra point during his team's preseason opener. 

After Shane Buechele connected with Justin Watson for a 22-yard touchdown, Reid marched onto the field to attempt the extra point. 

Reid didn't squander this opportunity, kicking it right down the middle to give the Chiefs a 14-0 lead. 

The broadcast crew for the Chiefs' preseason opener was quite entertained by Reid's extra point attempt. 

The Chiefs signed Reid to a three-year contract this offseason because of his ability to play the safety position. 

In 2021, Reid had 66 combined tackles, four passes defended, two interceptions and a forced fumble for the Houston Texans. 

Not only will Reid play a major role on defense for the Chiefs this fall, he could be their emergency kicker in the event Harrison Butker suffers an injury.
