Not that Chiefs Kingdom needs any reminder of what Oweh did, but most fans would likely conceded that Oweh definitely deserves some further recognition for coming up with such a big play to seal the game at a time when the Ravens were clearly on the ropes.
For those who missed Oweh’s signature play, it was the sort of set-up that most defenders dream of when they picture themselves making a highlight reel. The Ravens had somehow climbed back against the Chiefs to take the lead despite Patrick Mahomes and company hanging 35 on them and being up by two scores in the fourth quarter. However, the Ravens had also gifted the Chiefs with the ball, three timeouts and a few minutes left on the clock.
From there, Mahomes did what Mahomes always does, which is find the open man and move the chains as fast as anyone else in the game. As the Chiefs were within field goal range for Harrison Butker to put them over the top, since they were down by just one point, the Chiefs decided to run the ball and gain a bit better field position. Then this happened with only 90 seconds left:
Just like that, both Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Oweh had plays that will remain fixed to them for the rest of their playing careers. For CEH, it’s a challenge for him to now move forward from such a tremendous letdown and inopportune turnover. For Oweh, it signaled the arrival of the next great Ravens pass rusher—or at least one who had a game-saving play in his second career game.
As for other Week 2 winners in the AFC, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry was named the Offensive Player of the week and Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson earned the Special Teams Player of the week.
