The Kansas City Chiefs were the recipients of one of the weirdest plays in football history. On this play, they blocked a punt attempt by Michael Koenen. On this play, Koenen picked the ball up and tried to throw a pass. The ball was picked off and returned for a touchdown by Edgar Jones. Seriously, just watch this play.
So I have no idea how to explain what happened on this. I guess Koenen should be commended for trying to make a play but punters are not exactly the greatest passers on the planet. The ball was thrown perfectly if he was playing for the Chiefs. I mean, it hit that guy right in the chest.
At first, it was not ruled a touchdown but review eventually confirmed that the plane was broke. That concluded the wackiest play in football history. I would bet you money a blocked punt has never lead to a pick six on the same play. That is absolutely the oddest combination of plays that you can have.
You will see this play on highlight reels for the next week or so. It is so strange that you have to see it multiple times to understand what exactly happened. I have seen the play about ten times now and I still can not understand what happened. It is the perfect storm of weird things happening at once.
This is why football is so great. You never know when a weird play is going to happen. Certainly glad that this one happened.
