Video: Chiefs use cool trick play to convert 4th down against 49ers
The Kansas City Chiefs pulled out all the stops early in jumping ahead of the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.
Andy Reid pulled out a serious trick play on 4th and 1 from the San Francisco 6-yard line in the first quarter. The Chiefs opened in what appeared to be the wishbone before making a synchronized spin into what appeared to be some sort of wing-T with Patrick Mahomes moving away from the center. The ball was ultimately snapped directly to Damien Williams, who got the first down and nearly the touchdown.
The Chiefs even had time to become the Backstreet Boys during that drive.

The Chiefs scored the game’s first touchdown two plays later to take a 7-3 lead.
It takes some guts to pull out a play like that in the Super Bowl, especially in the first quarter. Given how relaxed Reid was about making it to the game, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised.
