The New York Jets saw firsthand just how fast Tyreek Hill can go when he burned their secondary for a 79-yard touchdown catch.

It was something akin to the movie Sniper, where the slogan was “One shot. One kill.” The Kansas City Chiefs offense entered the game down by a single touchdown in a second half where they needed some signs of life after slowing after such an electric start.

That’s when offensive coordinator Matt Nagy called for Tyreek Hill to do what he does best, and he responded by burning New York Jets cornerback Rashard Robinson for an 79-yard touchdown strike delivered by Alex Smith.

Check out the play below:

The touchdown was Alex Smith’s third touchdown pass of the day after hitting Travis Kelce with two quick touchdowns in the first quarter. The three touchdown day (so far) is the most touchdown passes he has thrown since Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders, a sign of just how frustrated the Chiefs offense has been—especially over the last two games.

The 79-yard strike was the longest pass play of the season for Smith, but it failed to match by a single yard his previous high set in each of the last two seasons in which he’s thrown 80-yard passes in both 2015 and again in 2016.

Coming into the game against the Jets, Tyreek Hill had four receiving touchdowns on the season with 54 receptions and 726 receiving yards. He now has 98 yards on the game which means he’s likely to break the 100 yard barrier with his next catch. That would give him 3 100-yard games on the season so far.
