Chiefs QB Alex Smith first player in Super Bowl era with this craziness

Alex Smith, Chiefs

What an unbelievable game for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith on Sunday afternoon against the New York Jets. Unfortunately, his history-making game was not enough as the Chiefs (6-6) fell 38-31 to the Jets en route to their fourth straight loss after starting the season 5-0.

According to a tweet from ESPN Stats & Info, Alex Smith became the first player in the Super Bowl era to have a rush of at least 70 yards and complete a pass of at least 70 yards in the same game.

On the afternoon, Smith finished with 366 yards through the air (19-of-33 passing) with four touchdown passes and his one beast rushing attempt for 70 yards. A video of the epic second-quarter run by Smith was posted to the team’s official Twitter page.

With Kansas City down 24-17 in the third quarter, Smith launched a 79-yard touchdown to the speedy star Tyreke Hill for one of the wide receivers two touchdowns on the day.

Unfortunately for the Chiefs, the Jets and quarterback Josh McCown were simply too much for the Kansas City defense. Although the Jets edged the Chiefs in total team yardage 488-474, the Jets’ offense had possession of the ball for almost a whopping 43 minutes out of a possible 60 minutes.

After their 5-0 start, it has been a brutal seven-game stretch (1-6) for Kansas City, with five of those six losses by seven points or less. Next Sunday for Kansas City, they will face a heated AFC West rival in the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium in a game with major playoff implications.
