WATCH: Chiefs DT Poe throws touchdown pass


Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid let 346-pound defensive tackle Dontari Poe throw for a touchdown in Sunday's 33-10 win over the Denver Broncos.

The two-yard touchdown pass came with less than two minutes remaining and rounded off the scoring in a victory that clinched the Chiefs a place in the playoffs.

Poe caught a pass from Alex Smith for a rush touchdown in the victory over the Oakland Raiders in October, but this time he was allowed to throw the ball.

The 26-year-old lined up as the quarterback and took the shotgun snap. He ran towards the line before tossing a jump pass to tight end Demetrius Harris.

Poe, a fifth-year player from Memphis, is the first defensive lineman in to throw a touchdown pass and have a rush touchdown in the same season in the Super Bowl era.

The play call came after the Broncos called a timeout with one minute and 55 seconds remaining, despite trailing by three scores at the time.
