Everyone knows the Falcons love to run plays involving a shovel pass — whether it’s thrown by Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce or someone else — in the red zone. And often, it’s successful, resulting in a touchdown.
Well, it was successfully run in Sunday’s Week 16 game, but this time, by the Falcons — giving the Chiefs a taste of their own medicine.
It happened when the Falcons had 2nd-and-4 from the Chiefs’ 4-yard line, and Matt Ryan flipped the ball to Hayden Hurst for the touchdown.
Well played, Falcons.
