Tyreek Hill lived up to his nickname in the Chiefs’ win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Kansas City’s “Cheetah” torched Tampa Bay’s secondary from the opening possession, racking up seven catches for 203 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter alone. Hill tacked on another TD and finished the game with 269 receiving yards, tied for 15th-most ever in a game and the most since the Falcons’ Julio Jones put up 300 on the Panthers in 2016.
Hill was having so much fun out there, he hit a backflip on his second touchdown, a 44-yard catch-and-run.
It was clear from the jump that the Bucs didn’t have much of an answer for Hill, and the Chiefs speedster decided to let the few Tampa Bay fans in the crowd know about it by yelling “Help is on the way!”
Hill’s trolling was a reference to Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe, who as a member of the Broncos made the line famous when he mocked New England fans in a win over the Patriots in 1996.
Sharpe appreciated the tribute and acknowledged it on Twitter.
Of course, the Buccaneers did eventually manage to find enough help to slow down Hill and make a game of it, but they ultimately came up short as the Chiefs won 27-24.
