The Kansas City Chiefs kicked a field goal to take a 23-20 lead over the Washington Redskins with four seconds left, and seemingly end the entertaining Monday Night Football duel.
However, the Redskins ran one more play from scrimmage, and their series of laterals resulted in a touchdown… for the Chiefs. As ESPN’s Sean McDonough said, “This might be meaningful to some!”
The Chiefs would miss the extra point, but the score of 29-20 meant that Kansas City covered the spread — 6.5 points to 7.5 points depending on the site/sportsbook — with the otherwise meaningless touchdown.
Oh. My. God.!!!!
No flag…Chiefs cover!

Most betting outlets also had the over/under anywhere from 47 to 48.5 points, so the over hit with the touchdown too!
For those that picked Washington or the under, it’s even more frustrating that the Chiefs didn’t wait longer than eight seconds remaining to spike the ball before their field goal. Kansas City surely did this in case of a bad snap on the field goal try, but those who picked the Redskins or the under sure as hell don’t care about the reasoning.
Reid had Smith spike the ball with 0:08 left, even though they had a TO. Most coaches call the TO at 0:03, and that last play never happens. pic.twitter.com/o4TXKhgA1A
