KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- He cut left, then right, then stutter-stepped and actually ran backward toward the end zone.Surrounded by Denver tacklers and just a couple of yards from the goal line, Dante Hall cut back left, looped around to the outside and darted 93 yards into the end zone -- and the record book.
He's definitely the right fit for this team. He offers them creativity and the possibility for broken plays to still net a positive gain. He's also done a good job of fostering the on-field relationship with his young receiver Ashley Lelie. That relationship is paying dividends as it gives the Broncos another receiving threat.
Question on the Chiefs: Are the Chiefs the team to beat in the AFC?
