The Kansas City Chiefs, already knowing that they have a playoff schedule to attend to, rested virtually every starter for today’s game against the San Diego Chargers, who are searching for a win just to get into the postseason.

However, in the NFL, just because some guys are taking a rest, that doesn’t mean that the guys that are left on the field can’t make some plays too

And the Chiefs still have one of the most dynamic playmakers in the game on the field today in Dexter McCluster, and he made one of those plays in the first half.

With the score tied at seven, McCluster took this swing pass from backup QB Chase Daniel right into the end zone for the go-ahead score, even throwing in a spin move in the process:


If anyone thought that the Chiefs were just going to roll over today and let the Chargers into the playoffs, they were sorely mistaken with that logic. They’ve shown up and they’re making plays still.
