Jets’ DJ Reed goes viral for ridiculous play against Chiefs
New York Jets cornerback D.J. Reed went viral after his team’s 23-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night for a ridiculous play he made.
The game was tied at 20 in the third quarter and Kansas City had a 3rd-and-7. Patrick Mahomes was under pressure and rolled to his left. Reed, who was in coverage, came charging in like a missile. Somehow, Reed completely whiffed on Mahomes.

Was he thrown off by a fake? How did he miss his target so badly? Maybe he thought it was flag football and he’d get credit for the pull.
DJ Reed: "I'll be banished to Siberia if I hit Patrick Mahomes at this speed. Business decision." https://t.co/gdBx1YMca6

Reed had 8 tackles in the game, but all anyone will remember is that miss.
