VIDEO: Tyreek Hill claims he’ll never pull DK Metcalf tackle because of Patrick Mahomes
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has weighed in on that amazing play by Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf. Being one of the fastest runners in the NFL himself, Hill shared how he could never pull off what Metcalf did because of his Chiefs teammate Patrick Mahomes.
Hill acknowledged that Metcalf pulled off a tremendous play by chasing down Budda Baker in Week 7’s matchup between the Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals. The play would have been a tremendous pick-6, but instead evolved into an even more magnificent defensive play by an offensive beast in Metcalf.
However, Hill also explained why Mahomes is the reason why he would never have a chance of replicating Metcalf’s astounding feat:

According to Hill, the reason why he doesn’t think he’d be able to do a “Metcalf” is because of the fact that his QB, Mahomes, just doesn’t throw interceptions. Fair enough.
For his part, Hill has had an outstanding season thus far. On Sunday against the Denver Broncos, the 26-year-old went a season-high 6-of-10 on his targets for a 55-yard gain and a touchdown. This was Hill’s first score in three weeks, as he ended his brief two-week spell of going scoreless. The four-time Pro-Bowler started off the season with four consecutive weeks with at least one touchdown, and this was thanks in large part to Mahomes.
Tyreek Hill and Co. will be back in action on Sunday against the New York Jets, in what should be an easy win for the defending champs. Hill gets a solid chance to add to his season scoring total against a hapless Jets defense.
